Most of my velcro fold back laundry tabs don't really work. Are there any that do work?

my thirsties ones work. the corners are rounded. my kidalogs os aio work except they are square edges and the corners pull up and catch on stuff. thinking of rounding them off to be more like the thirsties. could just be the diffrent types of velcro.

My Bummis and Thirsties work great, but my MT one size with velcro don't work at all! In fact the velcro itself is starting to not stick after only 3 months use. I had some Haute Pockets with laundry tabs that didn't work either. I guess it really depends on the brand.

The tabs on my Bumkins worked, but they scratched my daughter so now I just cut them off whenever I get a new cover.

Depends on the diaper. I have some old Bummis that don't work any more. My BG's work well when I make sure to line them up carefully.

Our BG 2.0's work great, but our Thirstie's Fab Fitted has never stayed closed in the dryer.
