    I'm thinking of doing this tomorrow, although am scared of ruining them!

    I bought fairy non bio especially lol and am planning on hanging them on drier then maybe quick tumble for 2-3 minutes (also worried about shrinking!)

    :roll:

    Is it going to kill baby if I dress him in stuff that I bought in sealed bags (which I am not going to wash, btw)? :p

    I am going to wash everything, just for peace of mind really. Im abit of a clean freak and wonder how many people have had their dirty hands on the clothes whilst they have been hanging up in shops or even being made on the production line... Thats just me tho. Its each to ther own, my friends didn't bother washing ther stuff and no harm ever came to the baby xx

    IV washed everything white and pale pink. I want some colour catchers to go in with the really bright stuff because alot of it has white on it and I forgot to get them in Asda yesterday, I had to go through and check all the lables because some stuff you can't tumble dry and alot of other stuff had to be dried on a low heat, I just did everything that could be tumble dried on a low heat and nothing seems to have shrunk fingers crossed. Felt a bit weird folding lots of tiny little clothes made everything seem very very real lol xx

    I plan to wash all my bits purely from what ladies have said on here. Better safe than sorry plus they will all smell scrummy.

    But as OH doesn't know the sex i can't do anything yet and even when i do ill have to hide them all away again. Wish i could do it once nursery is set up and put them away in draws but no can do :-(

    Funny you should post this, I've washed some of baby Chipps bits today! Everything secondhand has been washed on a 40 wash. All new stuff has been washed on a delicate 30 wash. All with fairy non bio. My house smells like baby already.

    Might be a bit early doing this but I like to be prepared, you never know ;)
