Bleached versus Un-Bleached Cloth Diapers versus
diapers are white because the cotton yarn was bleached in the factory
prior to weaving the material. Cotton is naturally an ivory or light
brown color. The bleaching process turns the cotton fibers white and
also removes the natural cotton oils in the fibers. In doing so the
strength of the fibers is reduced and the resulting woven material is
slightly less durable. The bleaching process can lead to additional
pollutants being released to the environment through airborne and
waterborne emissions. Recent improvements in bleaching technology has
reduced but not eliminated this impact.
Because unbleached diapers
retain much of their natural cotton oils in the fiber matrix they are
softer and more durable than bleached cloth diapers. Unbleached cloth
diapers must be washed at least 2-3 times after you receive them before
they become absorbant. We recommend washing the diapers in hot sudsy
water and drying them on high heat and repeating as many times as
necessary for the diapers to become absorbant. You can test the
absorbency by making a pocket of the diaper and slowly pouring 1/2 cup
of liquid into the diaper. If the pools and does not soak in fairly
quickly, keep washing. Depending upon the detergent you use and the
hardness of your water and the natural variations in cotton materials
you may have to wash these up to 5 times before they become fully
absorbant. Do not under any circumstance use fabric softner as this
causes the fabric to be coated and thus repels moisture. Despite the
added effort necessary to break in these diapers, they are extremely
popular and by most accounts well worth it.
Our unbleached organic fitted
diaper has all the benefits of the unbleached diaper and is also made
of certified organic cotton. Organic cotton is grown and harvested
utilizing practices that significantly reduce the environmental impacts
of growing cotton. No pesticides or man made fertilizers are used and
defoliants are not used prior to harvesting the cotton. Of course
organic materials are much more expensive and thus the diapers cost
