They......idk the word. They are like a BG that didn't graduate :lol: IMO they suck. A lot of people do love them though. I am just not one of them lol

Does anyone know what the highest/hottest wash temp is for PUL items?



i'll be forever grateful if anyone does!



Also, does anyone put their pockets in the dryer regularly during winter or is that a big 'no no'? (even if only on a low setting etc?)



I used the dryer to prep my last stash of pockets and then always hung them outside or on the clothes airer.. we dont own a dryer but i thought it might come in handy this winter - even if only for drying inserts :)

I *think* it's 110 degrees for washing. Don't quote me on that. And as for the dryer, I always dried my inserts on high heat and hung my shells on the door of the washer. After 30 minutes I'd pop the shells into the dryer and dry everything an extra 15 minutes on low heat.

Oh thats a good way of doing it :)



I know we are in for a horrible winter & my washing machine doesnt ring out tight enough so everything comes out dripping wet.. i think im going to invest in a new machine (ours is only 2yrs old and is flippen useless) and a dryer.

I live in an apartment complex. The apartment I'm moving into does not have washer & dryer hookups so I will have to use the apartments laundry room. My question is, since everyone else that uses the washers/dryers is going to be using regular detergent, fabric softener & dryer sheets...would I need to do a quick wash with vinegar in the washer? What would I need to do with the dryer?

I've always used regular detergent & fabric softener on our clothes & then CD friendly detergent for diapers.

Excited is an understatement haha!!
