New Diaper Safari Covers PUL problems - UPDATE!

I just took my new Diaper Safari cover out of the clean diaper laundry pile and noticed that the PUL has split and is starting to peel in little spots all over the cover I have never had this happen to a diaper before!!! And I have been cloth diapering for over 5 years straight)

Of course it was the red cover. I REALLY wanted a cute red cover. I bought these covers for their colors and the back flap and just showed them to a friend that is wanting to start cloth diapering.

I'm so disappointed. I need to go find the others I bought to see if they are peeling too. I feel like I need to tell my friend to avoid them as well. So bummed

I really should just stick with Flips.

UPDATE: I did contact them and they replaced my covers and sent a prepaid mailer to send my peeling covers back. They even let me change the color of the one of them. Great customer service! So far the new covers are working well, so I have no clue what went wrong with the other ones, but I still check them over very carefully each time they come out of the wash

Re: New Diaper Safari Covers PUL problems

I have several of their covers and quite a few of their pockets and no issues at all and have been using them a bit now. I don;t have a red cover though.. HAve you contacted them? Their customer service is top notch I'd bet they make this right.

Re: New Diaper Safari Covers PUL problems

I just looked at my black one, and it is fine. Then I looked at the purple and it has little splits too. I just have to go find the yellow one and check it.

I'm so sad.

Re: New Diaper Safari Covers PUL problems

right now I own the lighter green, orange and light purple one of the snaps on my green isn't as strong as the others so it can come unstapped easier when I'm putting it on the baby and comes unsnapped in the wash but thats it the pul on all is in excellent condition.. I'd deffiently contact her there might be some defects to a batch she needs to be aware of.
FWIW I got a bad batch of Flips diapers back when they first came out so it happens even with the more popuar companies, I got replacements and those worked fine.

Re: New Diaper Safari Covers PUL problems

I just found my light yellow one and it is fine. I have used that one the most since it was my free one and it is a color I don't care for. So it has become a nighttime diaper.

So the ones that have the splits have only been prewashed once and then worn once. WHY!!!

Maybe your dryer gets too hot? I ruined a few wetbags that way until I realized my dryer needed to be turned to medium heat.

I hang dry my covers. But none of my AI0s have ever gotten ruined from my drier, so I think my drier is ok.
