this is the third time I've bought a used diaper from e-bay or WHAM Mall and they have all been very very used. The one I got today has to be the worst! It was decribed as gently used and good condition some pilling on the fleece. The fleece is so hard and pilly that I wouldn't want to put it on my dog let alone my child. The doublers are just as hard, pilly and as used as the diaper. This mom should have just thrown this thing away rather than sell it. Please tell me my diapers are not going to wear like this and look this awfull when I start using them and washing them all the time.

No, your diapers are not going to wear like that or be that awful! Mine aren't! Though some of my hemp gets a bit stiff, it's nothing like what you describe. And none of my fleece has become stiff after 14 months of use.

It could have been her washing routine, it could have been a really, really old diaper

Sorry you had a bad experience. I've only been disappointed with one ebay diaper purchase, guess those are good odds considering how many I've bought off ebay

Sorry you have been having bad luck with ebay lately. I'm ready to give up on ebay too - but my problem is paying for diapers that never seem to find their way to my house
I don't know how the previous owner cared for her diapers, but I can assure you that even some of my diapers that are over 3 years old are still soft and functional.

Maybe she just has hard water. I tried to baby my diapers and was so good to them and my hemp and cotton fleece and sherpa got so nasty hard I wouldn't even put them on my DS. Mt poly fleece got yucky too. I tried everything, different washing routines, detergents, fabric softeners, drying methods. I finally bought a water softener for our house and it is much better. I also have to use downy advanced like once a month to keep them soft.

Sorry you have been so unlucky lately
I have always had such good luck with buying used diapers that I find it hard to justify buying new. I did cave this morning when patchwork pixie stocked
