Well, I have had kinda lackluster results with the nikwax that costs a fortune online... I mean for rewaterproofing old fb lites & keester kovers aios that never were very waterproof to begin with... well, it's hunting season (or soon) i guess, & wal-mart has started stocking sportwash again, & they have the atsko brand waterproofer (VERY reasonably priced) & the somewhat pricier Scotch brand one.<br><br>
has anybody tried either product yet? i'm going to get one or the other & give it a shot, but wanted to know if anyone else has tried them. (if not, i'll give one a go, & let y'all know if it works better than the nikwax did.)<br><br>
here's to fewer leaks (and god knows those old fuzzis need some help, and the keester kovers aios are way too thick to want to use a cover with, like i've had to, so wish me luck!)<br><br>

Permanent Water-Guard works great. Spray it on until wet, air dry until damp & toss into the dryer for 10-15min. It lasts for 25 washes. We use it & so do a lot of wahms who use cotton on the outside of diapers to stop wicking.<br>

I use <a href="http://www.atsko.com/waterguard.html" target="_blank">Permanent Water Guard</a> on my non-laminated Happy Heinys to prevent wicking and it seems to work pretty well.<br><br>
That said, I'm not sure what you saw at Wal-Mart is the same thing. What I saw at my Wal-Mart was the <a href="http://www.atsko.com/siliconewaterguard.html" target="_blank">Silicone Water Guard</a>. It sounds like the Silicone Water Guard is more for footwear and camping/hunting gear whereas the Permanent Water Guard is for fabrics. I'm not sure if the Silicone would be ok to use on diapers or not.<br><br>
By doing a search on Google, it looks like you can find the Permanent Water Guard in some sporting good stores (Oshman's, Fog Dog, Dunham's, MC Sports, Sports Authority) as well as K-mart and various places online (including Atsko's website). Most of the stores in my search seem to be selling a 17 fl oz bottle for $10.<br><br>
Hope this helps!

thanks amy- yes, i tried the silicone guard- it does say for cotton, fabric etc., so i hope it is ok. that said, we just had our first trial pee- and it was great! the keester kover is finally the aio it proposed to be! i've never been asble to use them w/out bulky covers before- it's like i suddenly have 6 new aios!<br>
gee, i hope it is ok to use on them tho'. so far, so good; it's not actually next to the skin, after all.<br>
btw, where do you find the other stuff?<br>
anyway, good ol' atsko! that nikwax was not very good!<br><br>
