lint in aplix diapers

I want to list some dipes on FSOT, and I'm trying to get all the lint out of the aplix. Does a diaper with a minimal amount of lint in the aplix bother you? I'm trying to root it all out with tweezers, but i just can't catch some of it.

Any tips on how to get it all out?

I don't mind it. If it's a lot I wonder why they didn't even try lol, but I can get it out and if it's just a wee bit I'd just leave it anyways. Oh! I also agree with he previous person, try a comb.

Re: lint in aplix diapers

I always tried to get every last speck out before selling, but if you take a picture or disclose it in your listing most people won't have issues with it. I had good luck squishing the aplix against duct tape, that usually pulled all the lint out quickly.

Re: lint in aplix diapers

Thanks ladies, between a snappi and some packing tape (didn't have duct tape) I'm pretty satisfied

A seam ripper works great too.

It bothers me! But I'm slightly OCD. I use a seam ripper routinely to remove anything that gets in ours.

When I sell I go over the diapers with a lint roller too! Maybe a little crazy huh...
