Wash BG 4.0 dark colors separately?
Just got some :fluff: in! I took advantage of the BG 4.0 b5g1 sale at cottonbabies and combined it with the free BG 4.0 for orders over $75. Quick question though (it's probably been addressed before). A sticker on the BGs says to wash the darks separately so colors won't run. Did you actually wash them separately? Seems like a huge hassle and I'm hoping it's just the company covering their own butts just in case. Has anyone actually had colors run onto other diapers? Thanks all!!:goodvibes:

I'd wash them separately, they do bleed sometimes. I think it's the tabs that bleed, not the PUL, but yes - wash separately.

I didn't with my stash of 18 that I got in a week ago...sounds a major pain 2 me! I had no problems with bleeding doing the typical cold/hot/rinse/rinse.

Never washed them separately and never had issues.

**I do know how to iPod on the other hand does not**

I use shout color catcher sheets. I haven't separated laundry in years!

No one had problems with them bleeding? I washed 3 new BGs and had an entire load of pink diapers afterward! :gah: They did stop bleeding after a couple washes, but I'll never wash them with lighter colors the first few times again.

I think it is dazzle that does the bleeding. It is the only one I have had an issue with. For me with all really bright or dark diapers I hand wash a few times first because they do dye everything pink. For the record it has only been the dazzle with bg I've had a problem with but judging from the number of bgs for sale on here that are pink on the tabs and the person also has dazzle that is the main issue.

I used Shout Color Catchers with my first load and still had the Dazzle bleed onto the tabs. I washed my second order seperately and had no issues with bleeding at all :)

I'd wash with towels rather than diaper laundry for the first few times, just to be safe.

Yes, wash separately for the first few times. I had some bleeding from the moonbeam. After 2-3 washes they were fine...but the laundry tabs are still a little blue even a year later.
