Bleached versus Un-Bleached Prefold Cloth Diapers.
Bleached prefold diapers are white because the cotton yarn was bleached in the factory prior to weaving the material. Cotton is naturally an ivory or light brown color. The bleaching process turns the cotton fibers white and also removes the natural cotton oils in the fibers. In doing so the strength of the fibers is reduced and the resulting woven material is slightly less durable. The bleaching process can lead to additional pollutants being released to the environment through airborne and waterborn emissions. Recent improvements in bleaching technology has reduced but not eliminated this impact.
Because unbleached diapers retain much of their natural cotton oils in the fiber matrix they are softer and more durable than bleached cloth diapers. Unbleached prefold cloth diapers must be washed at least 2-3 times after you receive them before they become absorbant. We recommend washing the diapers in hot sudsy water and drying them on high heat and repeating as many times as necessary for the diapers to become absorbant. You can test the absorbency by making a pocket of the diaper and slowly pouring 1/2 cup of liquid into the diaper. If the pools and does not soak in fairly quickly, keep washing. Depending upon the detergent you use and the hardness of your water and the natural variations in cotton materials you may have to wash these up to 5 times before they become fully absorbant. Generally 2-3 washes will be sufficient though. Do not under any circumstance use fabric softner as this causes the fabric to be coated and thus repels moisture. Despite the added effort necessary to break in these diapers, they are extremely popular and by most accounts well worth it. Choosing The Right Size For Diapering & Other Uses.
The three layering numbers refer to the number of fabric layers of the three panels of the prefold diaper with the middle panel being the thickest. Thicker diapers are generally preferred for home diapering due to the added absorbency. Most diaper services use 4x6x4 diapers to economize on costs and drying time and because they supply enough diapers for frequent changes. Most home users prefer 4x8x4 diapers. If you feel your 4x8x4 diapers are too bulky try 4x6x4 diapers. Preemie cloth diapers make great baby wipes and are popular as diaper doublers and are also suitable for the first 2-4 weeks of diapering after birth. 4x6x4 prefolds are recommended as home cleaning rags. Regular 4x6x4 cloth diapers are recommended both for burp cloths and for automobile detailing. Unsure of what size is best for you?
