I have bought used diapers but have not been happy with them. Not b/c they were used, the actual style of diaper just didn't work out. Glad I didn't pay full price to find out. I think at this point the only thing I would buy used is FB or BG. Or maybe ME. ME is so cheap second hand! And no to the used underwear. My dd used her cousins sz 2 undies for awhile and it didn't bother me. But I don;t know if I'll even pass her undies to her sister. Probably not since they seem to be wearing out already.

I had some cloth diapers and covers gifted to me when I first switched DS from disposables to cloth. I was very grateful for the diapers and used them.

Also, ahem -- some people may not be welcome there for 30 days. Not mentioning any names or anything. :

Havent read an answer but for me yes to the diapers no for myself.. Simpily the um secreations were talking from a baby toddler is pee/poo and dirt food all that can be washed well and sanitized and just feel well normal.. There is other stuff exchanged in adults and sanitized or not is just not the same and for me an ick factor. Also I buy and pass on cloth still in good grat or at least decent use my undies don't get tossed till they are threadbare and torn to pieces

I'd probably only buy used cloth if I knew the person. Otherwise I'd use some disposables and some cloth until I built up a big enough stash.

I answered "yes" though because I may consider buying used cloth diapers from a stranger, if money was tight or something.

All the cloth diapers I've bought have been used! But I would not buy used adult underwear. I know why people sell cloth diapers used, as their kids will obviously outgrow the sized ones, etc. But people selling (or giving away) used adult underwear? Let's just say I don't trust their motives near so much.

I voted no becasue I have attempted to buy used cd and wasted money on them becasue I am too grossed out by them or I have gotten gross stuff in the mail recently that is supposed to be a EUC but its not even in GUC so I won't even use them. Plus it cost to much with shipping! I bought used covers becasue I wasn't as grossed out but I will never again buy anything used I have decided!!!!! I have used freinds cds before but I know them and it seems to make it a little better even though I wouldn't use their underwear I hope that made sense I am NAKing

I will give it a try. I am not sure! Depends upon what the condition of the diaper is. I'd have no problem buying them from a trusted source though.

I can wash diapers on hot and dry them on high heat. Heck, I can boil prefolds and cotton fitteds. Lots of adult (women's) underwear won't hold up to that kind of abuse.

I've bought several diapers on DiaperSwappers. I only buy ones in EUC with no stains, and I wash them on hot before using. One time, the inserts that came with my used diapers were stained and wouldn't wash out, so I just tossed them. I knew they were technically disinfected, but the staining from some other kid grossed me out.

ETA - I use pockets, which clean very easily and I can easily replace inserts if they're yucky. Not sure that I'd buy used AIO since I'd worry about getting the inside clean.

NO to used underwear, YES to used diapers.

$15. a pair? Ehhh.... I'd be real darn careful of how mine underpants are treated and I'd still be saying NO to used.

I do have new prefolds, though. They seem to be harder to find used. I don't care about stains but broken elastic or snaps are past my ability to fix if the dipe is priced high. I did get some good snappi-type dipes with a few holes for $5. That was awesome. They are super soakers!

I prefer new cloth, but do have some hand-me-down diapers. I just bleach the heck out of them when I get them. After all, hospitals reuse linens and such after they have been soaked in blood, fecal matter, mucous, urine, etc. of people who are infected with various pathogenic bacteria and viruses. If properly laundered, they're fine. Some hospitals even use cloth diapers. And diaper services reuse.

I buy new undies because they're cheap and I definitely get my use out of them, but used undies would actually be fine after a hot wash with bleach and a hot drier cycle. Its a personal preference to buy new, not a safety issue.

i voted yes. i'm not rich! however, i love motherease/sandy's now and they're tough to find used, so i've been buying them all new.
