Is your water like my mom's where it feels like you constantly have soap on you even if you've already washed it off?

Quoting FaithLovesPussyCats:" ,...that's brilliant. I'll have to try that. And if my washer doesn't have one of those tall agitator thingies, do I still need to strip it? How would I go about doing that with an HE machine?"


Ya it works great for me. I've never stripped my diapers. Used them for a year. Didn't for a couple months and using them again.
Although it may be in my near future, just due to stinkies.



Yes you can still strip, just like you would diapers. The water gets around the seal.
Make sure you wipe that out, it can get gunk in it also leave the door open when you're not using the washer, it gets moldy and stinky if you close it. I use the washer cleaners then run regular laundry in it a few times before putting diapers in.

Quoting Ecstasy:" Yeah the two i got are PUL. With the fleece ones, do they only come in sized? Its summer here.. would fleece/wool be too hot? "


wool wouldn't be too hot. When you lanolize wol, it takes on the properties it has on the sheep. Cool in warm weather, warm in cool weather.
fleece doesn't do that...it will be warm.

I could be wrong but I think her name is tribute to Dr. Who.

I think it would just depend on the wool. I have several clothing items that are wool, most very soft, one or two scratchy.
