I know there are tons of "green" concious people out there...well I think all of that is kind of hokey stuff, but I am here to give my opinion on these cloth diapers...ugh! Send a dozen plastic ones to the landfill anyday! I am not impressed with these puppies! First of all trying these out I figured I would be saving some money, but Noooo! I am spending more money and time it seems. I am washing and washing these things so much more. You can't just buy a set of these for the baby because as you know the baby utilizes a bunch of these in one day alone! They stain pretty easily as well. Try drying these things...Oh wait I am sure you green folks are hanging them out on the line--good luck with that one!! Drying them takes like forever..so I dont see where the money saving comes in at all. It also sontains a bit of wool, so bleaching them makes the fibers much weaker and not as sturdy anymore.
