Hi I just read that you can make put the chamois drying towels into diaper cover and they never leak? I read about Magicloth and it absorbs 27x its own wieght in water. YOu cant machine dry these, just wash and air dry, but I am impressed with this idea. It seems sooo mega absorbant compared to regular cloth diapers. I am on a search to find a cheap frugal and good as disposable diaper system, sorta. My hubby buys sposis for me to diaper my baby with now. I am so used to them!<br><br>
But I had 2 kids before this, and they were cloth diapered with prefolds alot. I just want something easy and super mega absorbant, so the time between diaper changes would be about the same compared to sposies.<br><br>
I know microfiber is absorbant, but the magicloth is supertrim.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

don't know anything about magiccloth but i do know that you shouldn't put microfiber next to baby's skin - it absorbs far too much and (excessively) dries out baby's skin.

this isn't microfiber, it has more of a rubbery feel and is thinner than microfiber.<br><br>
I think they might work better in pocket diapers?

Interesting thought. I haven't tried, but I might cut one of my moisture magnet towels and stuff in a pocket diaper to see how well it absorbs. They soak up a lot of water and can be washed and dried. They are made for drying pets. This place is local for me: <a href="http://www.upco.com/cgi-bin/Upcol.storefront/463800e603b5857eea6dc0a80a2f06ce/Product/View/2143X" target="_blank">http://www.upco.com/cgi-bin/Upcol.st...uct/View/2143X</a>

Thanks for the link...Those are cheap! I have read that you shoudn't dry them in the dryer because it ruins absorbancy and they don't last?? I do think that you could put alot of layers before you got very thick. Mega Mega Mega absorbant<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

The dryer does wear them down over time - and they will shink. I have somethat I have been using for 3 years and they are down to 17X24. I always toss them in the dryer. Maybe I will see how much they can hold in comparison to microfiber.
