I washed my new HH Stuffins' (hemp) and Joey bunz (hemp) along with my Fuzzi Bunz. I didn't even think about where the natural oils I was washing out would go! Do I need to do anything to my FBs or the CPFs that were there too? What should I be looking for as signs of a problem? What happens when the fleece repells? If the FB feels wet on the inside, is it just overstuffed or is this repelling at work?

Thanks,
Kim

How many inserts did you wash? I have thrown a few new hemp items in with my wash with no problems. I have never had repelling, but I think you would get some leaks and yes I think the fleece feels wet also even if the inserts aren't soaked. You should be able to just strip them by doing a few hot washes.

I have always washed new hemp and new fb's together. I have also only ever washed new hemp once, and let it get absorbent over time. I have never had a problem either with repelling or leaks because of insufficient hemp.

There were 2 HH Stuffins and 2 Joey bunz. I'll try the hot washes, sounds a lot easier than getting out a toothbrush and some dish soap!

Thanks!

I'd wait and see if you have repelling issues before you break out the toothbruch. That takes some serious time and work! I've washed new hemp with my pockets before. I never even thought about the oils involved. I guess I won't be doing that any more, just in case.
