Best Bottoms and FUZzibuNz seemed to repel. Washing with grovia per package instructions plus 3 additional washes seemed to do the trick. I want to say my results were definitive; however there were a few mistakes with my methodology:
1) I was testing initially with a infant Tylenol syringe. When repelling kept occurring after first few washes I tried to scrub dawn on the surface-I used a spray bottle to add water. It took a few sprays before I observed the water didn’t repel which leads to the assumption that the syringe were not the correct tool to test absorption (perhaps they lacked the speed/force of the spray bottle). Would the diapers have repelled as pictured above if I began the experiment with the spray bottle instead of the syringes?
2) Unknown cause of Repelling: The diapers were used and the original owner had issues with leaking. I’m not sure their wash routine was sufficient. I used Vaseline (Hopefully you didn’t faint while reading that)-the flip brand inserts seemed to handle it ok and I used those at the same time as the other two brands mentioned above—there seemed to be no issue with the flip inserts. Also, those came from the same owners but were not used as frequent. Also I’m not sure where the flip and best bottoms came from before previous owners (some new, some used)? The FUZzibuNz I bought new. Oh and Vaseline was used for at most 3 weeks probably just 2.
Pictures show water on top of diapers before first Grovia Wash (different brands) and after all washes and dawn scrub (just best bottoms)
Excelente para los pañales, quedan como nuevos!
Best investment ever!!!!! Definitely gets the odor out of the inserts and shells. Giving that fresh clean smell. I’m so happy that I purchased this product
