Question Reusable liners?

I'm getting ready to purchase some reusable liners, but I'm not sure what is going to work best.

What do you use?

Kushies?
Bummis?

Also, we use a combination of prefolds and pockets *if that makes any difference*.

TIA!

Re: Reusable liners?

I bought a yard of fleece and cut it into liners and it cost me under $5 total. I have been using the same ones for over 2 years now.

Re: Reusable liners?

I agree with pp, I got some cheap fleece blankets and cut them up myself. Very cheap, easy and work GREAT!!!! Much cheaper than store bought ones.

Re: Reusable liners?

ITA. I also purchased micro-fleece (seems to pill alot less than regular fleece) at my local fabric store. I cut them out myself and have used them for he past 2 1/2 years and they are still going strong. I plan to use them with my new LO due in June. I also got a dark grey color so that I don't worry about staining.

HTH

When you cut the fleece into liners do you have to sew or serge the ends? Or double layer them?

Re: Reusable liners?

No to both really easy for people like me who can't sew! I'd be interested to hear others who use liners what they do to avoid it bunching up in the prefold

Re: Reusable liners?

This was a great question/response and I think I just solved my traveling issue (no washer) and how to keep my FB clean from poo inexpensively and avoid sposies. I have some tan fleece in the house that has been lying around for years I can cut up. I love this forum! thanks.

Re: Reusable liners?

BTW if I rarely use a sposie I line it with fleece to try to block dome if the chemicals makes me feel better anyway!

Re: Reusable liners?

Just buy fleece? Hmm...who would have thunk? I made my wipes out of Gerber burp clothes *the ones that won't soak up a thing if they did get spit up on them? * I would never have thought to buy the fleece!!

Do you cut it in a particular shape? Trace a pocket liner? And you don't have to surge around the edge or zig zag?

TIA for the answers!
