oh, my! I put a dirty disposable diaper in the laundry!

This morning I was in a hurry picking up the last piece of laundry to try to fill the load. I happened to grab my DS's pajamas pant with disposable pull-up sandwich in there and threw in laundry.

I found out when I opened laundry m/c and found a lot gluey, jelly white stuff sticking to clothes. I took me a while to realize my mistake here and shook all stuff out of the clothes and put in dryer. I still have to go back to clean out the m/c

OH.... my gosh!! Very Messy... Has this happened to anyone before?

Never here, but I have heard of it happening lots of times to other mamas. You could ask in Diaper Chatter Q&A

yep, happened to me.....

I had to take everything out, take outside and get as much of the beads off as I could, clean out what I could from the washer, and run it through about 3 more times before putting in the drier....

someone told me if you leave any of the gel beads on it and put in the dryer the stuff will melt to the clothes.... so I tried not to do that

Yup, this has happened to me a few times. Give your laundry another wash or two and make sure AAAALLL the gel is gone before you put it in the dryer. The gel will stick to your clothes and make a horrible tacky mess if it gets dried.

Oh... I did put the clothes right in the dryer!!!

Should I rewash them again before using the clothes?

Yeah, you're gonna have to, they'll probably be all crunchy and stuck together.

lol I've always wanted to use that smiley, and I am definitely curious as to what that looks like! I've never used a sposie on dd so I don't even know how to put one on or what they look like on the inside.
