PSA: Getting gel from disposable diaper out of washer

Directions from very nice Pampers lady:

Gel is not toxic it's like the gel in gelcaps.

- Run the washer on the ust the rinse cycle once or twice. Most of the gel should break down on it's own.

- If there's any left use a hair dryer to dry the gel. This makes it easier to wipe out.

- Put the affected clothes in the dryer. This should dry out the gel and make it easier to shake off. Then wash the clothes again, like normal, without the diapers. (She did say that part, like I would put them in on purpose.)

 Now, of course, DS woke up so I'll have to wait until his next nap to work on this. Smile

    I also read that to pour salt on the gel, then wait 30 min, wipe out, and run rinse.
    I give up trying to add my kids' photos. Just know that they are adorable.
