I think I know what you mean. I'm not a fabric expert but it does make sense to me that folds would wear out quicker. Pants will do that at the fold in the hem, shirts will do that at the sleeves and neck holes (where the hem fold is) sometimes as well. The place where the worn spot has occured doesn't really surprise me, but the fact that they're that bad after only 18 months does.
It sounds very much like typical aging of fabric but the fact that the diapers aren't that old tells me that they shouldn't be that bad yet. If you only had like a dozen diapers you washed every single day for 18 months, then I could maybe understand but that's not the case. Only thing I can see is the OxyClean weakened the fibers such that they aged much faster than they otherwise would.... But even that's stretching it.
Sorry, wish I could be of more help.
