I have some extra fleece, and am planning to make liners for diaper cream, as my diapers are repelling pretty badly.

How do you wash them? I don't want to waste water to wash a whole load when I only have a handful of liners.

I just wash them with everything else, but I don't use cream.

You have to be careful about making fleece liners though - I made several and only realized after the fact that my fleece doesn't wick, it repels.

Hmm... Can you fix it if your fleece repels? I haven't checked mine. Should I just splash some water and see what happens, or wash it first?

nak. wash the fleece first b/c it can come coated wih chemicals from the manufacturing process and may not wick at first.

if u consistently use cream, i would wash the liners with your towels or something so ur residue doesnt land on ur diapers.
