i wash everything the same. my GMD pfs, bummis wraps, flannel wipes, and my fleece wipes. everything is fine except my fleece wipes. they used to absorb it right up (i have some liners too but we only use them for rashes). why is my fleece repelling? i have washed them lots, with dipes and without.... hot water, bleach, borax....you name i tried it. what am i not seeing???

What is in your wipe solution if you use one? In my experience fleece is much more finicky about build up of soaps and oils than anything else. I would maybe up them in a sink full of HOT water with a couple drops of dish soap and let then soak, agitating every so often and then rinse rinse rinse in hot water till they are suds free. That should help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

You could try boiling as a last resort with some dish soap, but fleece is really a plastic so it could ruin them if you aren't careful. I know people who have boiled diapers with fleece liners and been fine. Worth a try if you are going to have to throw them out anyways. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
