If I wanted to put fleece liners in my dipes..

How would I go about it? I mean, go to the fabric store, buy some fleece, cut into strips, insert, correct? No sewing involved? Any certain fleece I should look for? Just toss the fleece with the dipe into the pail? Just one layer?

Keep in mind, you are talking to a mama who paid her friend in 7th grade to make her SQUARE pillow in home ec sewing. Literally NO sewing experience.

You need microfleece. If you have a joanns near you, I hear they have a great no-pill micro that will work great in diapers. If you want something a little better, I can check to see if I have enough large scraps to fill a flat rate priority bag and send it to you for the cost of shipping. PM if you want them and I'll dig through my scrap bags to see if I have enough that are large enough for you.

lmao on the home ec thing...

about the liners, if you are simply looking for a fleece liner to wick away mositure and/or catch poop, then you want to make sure you get a fleece that wicks, not a fleece that doesn't wick. You can get cheapo fleece at walmart for like $4/yrd and just cut it into the right size strips. I would shake the poop into the toilet before putting it in the pail , but yeah, you can jsut throw it right in the pail with everything else.

This is what I did. I just wanted something to catch the poo, so I bought baby printed fleece that had ducks on it and then cut it into strips and just lay them in my dipes and it catches the poo. Then I just rinse or drop the poo off into the toilet and throw it all together in my pail and wash all of them together. It has been a lifesaver especially after shots, b/c she always has nasty poo after her shots.

Re: If I wanted to put fleece liners in my dipes..

I was thrown out of HE first I sewed my finger with the machine then I set fire to a potholder (all by accident). Who knew those things are flammable???

for those of us who are REALLY challenged, could you pls post a link to the microfleece at Joanns? Then I can go w/link in hand and say I want THIS.

Fwiw, I bought the fleece at walmart and it seems to repel water to me (which is good b/c I bought it for covers)

Thanks!!

If the brand new fleece repells water try washing it in hot water with JUST white vinegar... I think I just poured some in.. but maybe even a full on cup. Unless you want to keep it repelling..
