DH put fab softener sheets in the dryer...

As I was getting ready to wash all my diapers I had done enough loads of laundry without using fabric softener or sheets  so that the residue would be gone.

BUT DH put some fabric softener sheets with our towels this morning. I am also washing baby clothes and was going to boil and wash diapers after.

What do I do about the dryer? I heard something about vinegar on towels? I can't seem to find the posts that talk about this.

TIA

  • As long as it's not in with the diapers, I really really doubt it will be an issue.
  • You can wipe out the drum to remove the fabric softener residue. However, as long as you wash a load or two before your diapers they will probably be fine. I wouldn't make a habit of it though.

  • I use fabric softener sheets in all our laundry except for diapers.  I have been doing this for 2 years now.  I am part of a couple local groups and all of us pretty much use softener sheets with everything else and no need to wash out your dryer.  So all in all I think you will be fine

    Third this.

     

    Also, using fabric softener with towels will reduce their ability to absorb water as well. :)

  • Ok perfect

    thanks ladies, I am just scared of doing something that will risk the absorbency of the diapers.

    on a side note, how bad is softener for baby? I got a lot of hand me down clothes and they smelled like fabric softener even after one wash! I washed again just in case.

    I didn't use it when my son was a newborn, after awhile I started using them.  It just depends upon how sensitive your babies skin is and how he/she reacts.  My son has really sensitive skin but has no reaction to softener.
