|so anyway, i received a small sandy's from a friend. i felt the diaper where the absorbant pannel was not present and it seemed to be nice and thick. i feel my OS's however in the same locations, and they seem to be thinning out. my mom used bleach on them only once because she did not know any better and i used only a miniscule amount because of bad stains. this was probably 3 or so months ago. i used oxygen based addative sometimes as well, i did not realise not to at that time, but do not use it any more. i finally found the instructions on this website and now wash and dry carefully according to them. i have had these dipes since august. why do these seem to be thinning out a bit prematurely? any suggestions to stop the premature wear? i live in an apartment and do not have access to a clothes line to dry them. i have the regular cotton, bamboo, as well as the sd dipes.
