I went to the Joann website to see what colors they have and it said under the Alova Suedecloth assorted colors it's our of stock onlins and is discontinued!!! Just thought I'd let you kow to go and get some in the stores if you want what's left.
OK, so a little googling tonight (while I am waiting for a tornado watch/severe storm warning to clear) produced some interesting Alova Suede facts. Did you know that the Korean company that makes it produces the line in 90 different colors including animal prints? Look for yourself. And that the suggested uses are 1. Sofa 2. Cushion and 3. Toy? You can also use it to make these neato costumes for your Roomba vacuum cleaner, if you should be so lucky as to own one.You can also use Alova suede for a diy poker table and to make your own Narnia costumes.
I think JoAnn's has been holding out on us. But I think that it should be heading to the clearance aisles soon, with stock replenished in the fall.
I have a Roomba... you can have it & all the extra parts for super cheap (like $25) + shipping if you want it! I've honestly found that once you add in the time it takes to clean the dog hair out of th brushes & parts, pick up all the throw rugs, sweep out the corners & set up the "virtual wall in preparation for running the thing... it's about 10x faster to just sweep or vacuum the old fashioned way! Plus, it takes 45 minutes to an hour to do a large family room-- that's a long time to listen to the noise it makes.
Oh, and this is the third one I've been sent from the manufacturer after the other two broke-- don't believe what is says about working on carpets! It will wear out the gears in a week or so if you try to use it on carpets. It really only works on hard surfaces. I wish I'd never wasted my money on the darned thing.
Cool, I like the idea of the stay dry feeling. Would I just cut some rectangles out and serge the edges? I use fitteds and covers. And just lay the suede cloth in the diaper? Kinda like microfleece right?
I just went to joann's to get the sale and saw the alova suedecloth - didn't like it at all! And I so wanted to! But I didn't buy any. I thought it would be thinner and softer, microsuede like the little cloths I can find in the automotive section. And those are too small to do anything with except top doublers.
I have a few diapers with suedecloth and I really didn't like the feel of it either (wonderoos). They are in a 'donate' box atm... While it didn't really pill up, it still attracted 'linty' or fabric bits kinda like microfiber cleaning cloths do....so it bugged me..haha
Oh well. I've heard some mom's LOVE it for pads...but I'd prefer a cotton/hemp or fleece for that!
