|I emailed ME and asked about optical brighteners on bamboo or natural fiber diapers, they say they do affect them. Here is the email I reieved. Just wanted to let you all know.
Update! My Bamboo dipes are Ok and I bought them all brandnew, but my organic cotton sandys I bought used and have they bald spots. I was using Arm & hammer sensitive and had no issues. It does contain an optical brightner.
Thank you for your email and your interest in Mother-ease cloth diapers.
Optical brighteners can affect the natural fibers. We suggest a regular strength detergent with no whiteners, bleach or fabric softeners.
I am sorry I am not familiar with Ecos and we have no data on how it would affect our diapers.
The trapped lint is the normal break down of the fibers from washing. With other clothing the fibers are taken away in the rinse cycle. Because they are inside the diaper they have no where to go and accumulate in corners and around the snaps.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
