Yep! What she said! I have a "stash" of 3-4 diapers that I don't mind if they go outside, go painting, etc. Keep 'em around - you never know when you might need them.
If too much time goes by, then I like what ZenSizzled said - then try to sell them, and represent them for what they are.
A side note: I mostly buy new or barely used condition now, because I have SPECIFICALLY had this issue when buying SOS diapers used. I also read more complaints about those than any other diaper in terms of "the seller said it was X condition, but I really think it is Y." I really think that the mamas who are selling them are not intentionally misrepresenting them in any way. I just think it's clear to someone how old a diaper an SOS diaper is in particular if they've owned an SOS through its entire lifecycle. OK, rambling now. Not trying to start a conversation on this.
