Re: what causes yellow/briwn pul amd Velcro..

I've seen it before on a few pictures, but it's never happened to me. If I had to guess I would say hard water/high mineral content.

Ya I'm pretty mad. Some of my dipes went in one color and came out a different color. But luckily I have mostly snaps and pockets where you can't really see the pul.. :-(

thats happened to a few of my PUL covers but only the PUL and I always assumed it was bleach for some reason. But we have really minerally water so maybe its that.

In also got a huge rust stain on the outside of my washer and no where on our part of the washer is rusty. I think its the city water having an issue.. My pretty BG and flips are what too the brunt of it. My fb look good as new.

I have a couple of flips with brown spots on the white backing for the snaps..not on the colored pul. I noticed it and hung them out in the sun to dry and no luck fading it. At least it's inside the cover.
