What is up with my AIOs?!

It seems like all of my AIOs are leaking! It is driving me nuts- I cannot figure it out! Even my newest dipes are doing it... I only leave the shells in for a cold soak and wash with an extra rinse with about 2 Tbls. of detergent, then take them out and hang them to dry. Not running them through a hot cycle is starting to creep me out though, because they are getting soaked with pee when she wears them, so I don't feel like they are getting clean!

I know I have seen water proofing spray mentioned several times- should I try that? I just seems like I must be doing something wrong if all of them are leaking. My beccabottoms are only a few weeks old and even those seem to be leaking?

Maybe Ains has suddenly become a super soaker? I *think* I am changing her often enough... It just stinks because I use my AIOs when we go out and she keeps ending up with wet clothes... Any ideas?

Could it be that you have detergent build up and so the soakers are repelling? That's my guess.

I came to the conclusion that AIOs are not an option for my two super soakers. Hope that is not the case for you.

All the AIO's I own are convienent and cute but when we go out and about I bring a ton because I change them often. That or pack the inside full of 1-2 more layers/soakers. As long as I put an extra soaker in it, I hardly ever have a problem. If there's no where else for the pee to go.. it goes out!
I would try stripping them (Becky mentioned detergent build up) AND drying a few times on HOT in the dryer <gasp> I know, I know.. but every once in a while PUL needs to be "sealed" again. I do it every once in a while and it really does work!!
