Re: cause of homemade diapers wicking through threading?

My pul is just standard pul bought at diaper supply sites (and not cotton coated pul).

I DID try a rolled legging though last weekend actually! It doesn't quite roll in without a little help (probably b/c I didn't make the inner fabric less wide to help pull it in). But it does not seem to have leaking issues obviously without the thread issue.
I have been asking around, and I have heard some claim that even with the inner rolling out (both inner and outer cut the same), there are no leaks. I think it depends on the kid.

Did you try any of the no-wick sprays for your diapers with castings? How is it working out for you?
