|Okay mamas, I'm a little worried here. I have a stash of 26 organic OS that I got about a month ago. They are great, I love them, but last week as I was putting them away I noticed some funny wear spots. On the outside, where you can see the stitching from the soaker, there are like small "runs" in the fabric, along the stitching. Some of them are tiny and some are bigger, and I can see light through them. Like big pinholes (it's hard to describe). It is happening on about half of my dipes. Yesterday when I put them away, (they have been washed twice since I first noticed anything) there were actually a few real holes in the outside layer, also along the stitching. Like the "runs" had gotten bigger. What?????
I called ME the first time I noticed this, and they had me send them my worst diaper. They said they will determine if it is a manufacturing defect or not, and will replace them if it is. I know that the organic cotton is not supposed to hold up like the cotton/poly, but starting to show signs of wear after three weeks (when i first noticed this) seems horrible to me. I haven't heard anything from them yet, but I'm on the west coast and the mail probably takes forever from here.
I know someone is wondering what my wash routine is:
Dry pail, cold rinse with a squirt of bac-out, hot wash with country save and an extra cold rinse, medium dryer. I never used anything else for fear of wearing them out or damaging them in some way.
I know the ME is known for great long-lasting products, but I am really worried here. I'm wondering if I made the right choice with the organic, even if they replace them, will the next batch wear this way as well? Do you think they would consider trading for the bamboo if they decide to replace my dipes? I'm concerned that I'll be stuck with crappy diapers if this is just the way the organic goes. Any advice? TIA
