Can PUL be fixed once damaged?

It's a long story how I ended up with these diapers, so I won't go there. The situation is that I have some BG 3.0 that have taken a beating. I'm going to replace the hook and loop. I worry about some of the PUL, though. It fails sometimes. Can I do anything to "re-waterproof" these? I want to put them on FSOT, but I don't want to sell a worthless diaper. The inserts are super. (Tempted to keep them.) I'm hoping someone can tell he what to do. Thanks!

I got some Bummi's covers several years ago from a friend and she said they probably weren't waterproof anymore but that I could buy waterproofing spray from Walmart, spray them down and let them dry for 24-48 hours. I did it and it worked perfectly. Is the PUL completely non existent? Not sure if it just has holes, if the spray would help or not. Could you use them as swim dipes if that doesn't work, or just in the house double stuffed when you're home?

I have plenty of diapers. DH has no idea how many some people have when says I need an intervention. I may try spraying them. It's going to be challenging since they are pockets. Selfishly I'd like to sell them if I can. Thanks for the suggestion!

Just keep in mind that you must disclose the fact that you sprayed them when you sell them. If they had to be sprayed to prevent leaks, I'd probably label them as having "bad PUL." I've never used this spray, but I've heard that it will eventually wash out. I'd be pretty upset to buy diapers only to have them go all leaky on me after a few washes.

This^ I would think the spray on waterproofing would also offgas a fair amount and any potential purchaser would want to know that in advance.

Re: Can PUL be fixed once damaged?

What kind of spray is it? I have BG 3.0s too, I have 7 of them and they are on kid #3 of being used as night time diapers (so basically once a week use other than lately when little miss decides to poop 3 times in her freshly put on night diaper lol). The PUL looks terrible but haven't leaked (yet!), I'd like to keep using them with #3 and possibly #4 if we have another but Im sure they will start leaking soon enough! I'd like to buy spray so Im ready to go!

I'm assuming just traditional waterproofing spray? I used to use it on my hiking boots before I bought waterproof ones. Prob by shoe care items at the store....?
