those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

You know what im talking about those little balled up pieces of fabric?! Inside the prefolds??

I dont have any prefolds anymore.. but I cant help but want to try the new gmd bamboos... theres something so cute about prefolds... even though I can do the prefold fold with my flats its not the same... maybe cuz prefolds (&wool) were my first true cd loves?!

These knots though, they drive me crazy n I swear they happen to me sometimes even just from prepping! Not even using them long... idk anyway to avoid those?!

They must be shoddily made prefolds? Most of them are not small pieces stuffed in the middle, it's one large piece. I've never had that happen in 2.5 years of washing multiple brands

Re: those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

Seriously?!! Wtf am I doing wrong??!!! Ive had bummis, gmd, and used colorgrown organic prefolds n that happened.. I noticed it in my gmd ones through the prepping process so they werent like gerber 'stuffed' prefolds... its mostly in the 4 corners but as they get older gets worse

Re: those knots u get inside prefolds?!??!!

I have had them in the corners of all my prefolds. I took one apart. It is balled up lint. No preventing it in natural fiber prefolds.

I wonder if it wouldnt happen in bamboo prefolds since bamboo is more a man made fabric

Get one or two and see how it goes. I don't have any bamboo prefolds only 1 bamboo flat so cannot help you with that.

I have some pb&e Molly's that have the balls in the corners:/ I know from taking apart other pf's it's just lint balls, but it's irritating. I'm ready to sell mine but have been hesitant because of this.
