Re: Does pet hairs on your diaper bother you?

I can think of 3 other hairs that would bother me WAY more than pet hair.
Even if you keep your dipes away from your pets, that hair travels. Sometimes a stray hair just cant' be helped.
20, though? As a seller, I'd notice and at least run a lint brush over it, if not rewash it!

I think if anyone in my family was severely allergic (as I was while PG) I'd be sure to ask.

I never think to tell ppl... my dogs are no where near my diapers. They don't go in ds's room.

I apologize if any one ever found a dog hair on any of my diapers.

It would really bother me!

I would expect that even if you are keeping you pets away from the item, that it be stated whether or not you have pets. I had great allergies to cats and dogs growing up, and anything would set me off.
Just another reason I post that we are pet and smoke free
Its just a respect thing IMO to state if you have a pet.

I think if your allergic, you should be asking if its a pet free home before you buy the item (unless of course its an ebay type thing)

Re: Does pet hairs on your diaper bother you?

I have to say I think it is nice if the seller mentions it, but I think if you are dealing with an allergy that is really your responsibility to ask. I am allergic to fabric softner and I consider it my own fault if I buy something (I realize not diapers) that someone used fabric softner on. It makes me break out in tons of bumps and itch all over, but I don't expect someone to say every possible thing about the item, that just isn't possible.

it wouldn't bother me b/c i wash the diapers immediately after i receive them. however, if i asked and was misinformed i would be upset. i would much rather prefer pet hair than smoke!!!

Re: Does pet hairs on your diaper bother you?

It's nice if people mention it in their listings, but people forget sometimes. If you are picky about something, you should always make sure to ask. I always try to remember to mention I have to heavily shedding dogs. They rarely come upstairs, but I find dog hair all over my house, even in rooms they aren't allowed in. I always forget to ask about cats, I'm allergic, but I just figure it's my mistake for not asking when sometime arrives w/cat hair (or invisible dander) on it.

ETA: I did get something matted with cat hair once, obviously the cat slept on it. I couldn't see the fabric underneath for all the hair! That was annoying.

Re: Does pet hairs on your diaper bother you?

It would if it is a lot. We have 3 dogs and they aren't anywhere near the stuff. Being a mom to Mr. Allergy I should know better and will add that info to my sites.

My big problem is making sure I am not crocheting or knitting my hair into it! LOL
