Yellow microfiber towels as inserts?

Hi mamas! I bought some of these off of ebay (store: http://stores.ebay.com/Feel-Good-Deal) intending to use them as additional pocket inserts. But these puppies are BRIGHT yellow. Would they stain all my pretty new happy heiny's, after washing the towels a few times? Anyone have experience with cheapo MF towels?

Thanks!

After the first few washes they should be fine. But they will bleed the first wash or two and they can stain any materials that are synthetic (PUL, fleece, suedecloth, etc.) So washing them alone the first few times is a good idea.

I ended up with a yellow tint to all of my white inserts and some of my diaper inners because I did not prewash. The yellow did fade over time, but it was annoying.

Maybe it depends on where they came from. I got a bright yellow one free with my Wonderoo and it never bled, but maybe it came from a different source.

I also had some blue and green MF towels that bled each time I washed them, and ended up with blue and green aplix tabs on my BGs, along with blue and green tinted CB inserts.

Hmm...I guess I'll prewash them a few times (with our dark clothes!) and then test 'em out. Thanks mamas!
