Taking all my aplix 4.0s out of rotation?

All of a sudden I started hating pulling out a chain of stuck together diapers out of the washing machine. I also noticed that a bunch of my Flip covers are getting snagged looking because of this, as are most of the inserts. I'm sure it's because DH is too lazy to put the Velcro tabs together before dumping in the wetbag!

Should I take them out of rotation for a while or just sell the ones I'm hating at the moment?

I'd take them out of rotation for a month and see if you miss them. Personally I hate aplix and for this reason! So sorry you are dealing with this!

If you really don't like them why not get them converted to snaps?

I don't think I like pockets enough to do this. We have enough diapers we don't really need to replace them if I get rid of them, I just need to think about keeping DH happy

Now that's a good idea! Why didn't I think of that? Only thing is, do I sort them when putting them in the washer or wetbag?...

Good question. I would probably do it when I put them in the washer. My wetbag is small though.

how about giving him the chain and telling him to undo it since he couldn't put the aplix on the tabs? Or show him to remind him the importance?

I would probably show him the chain and the damage to the Flips. Fastening the tabs isn't a big deal and it makes a huge difference IMO.
