Can you trim pilly Aplix?

Got my "new" diapers today from DS and the Aplix is pilly, like it was washed with new cotton items and the fuzzies got caught. Can I trim the fuzzies out? The diaper is fine besides that, I just want to know f this will screw up the loop tape?

Thanks!

Re: Can you trim pilly Aplix?

I'd like to know too....i have lots of HHs where the aplix is horribly pilly! They work fine and still stick like when i bought them new but they look bad. I wash everything together, including my prefolds so i wonder if thats how they came to look like that? I bought most of mine new but i've gotten some used ones here on DS and the used i got from other mamas don't look like mine so then i figured i must be doing something wrong with mine

My first CD order ever was from Green Mountain Diapers, it came with this big printout of diapers DO and DON'TS. I studied that like I was taking a test. One of the things she says is never wash new cotton items with the rest of your diapers until you have run them through serveral wash-dry cycles.
