Does the job! BUT these reviews are misleading
on May 22, 2014
These do the job. For stay dry microfiber it's pretty much what you get no matter what brand you find on the market in my experience.
I really have to clarify a lot of the ignorant reviews on here though.
People are absolutely not even reviewing the correct product. This review is for the stay dry (microfiber). People are reviewing the hemp/organic cotton which is a completely different insert and clearly labeled differently.
First off I have both.
Stay dry is the basic one and I still like using them. It keeps baby dry. The blue thread is starting to fray on one of mine and I'm kinda disappointed because they've been lined dry and I've only had them a few weeks. Doesn't affect the function though. As with most all microfiber its keeps the smell in more than hemp so try not to let poopy diapers sit for too long in wet bag (mine was only 2 days and the one stained and smells). A strip and line dry in sun will probably do the trick.
The hemp/organic cotton is really nice and are well made. BUT I have to clarify people here who are reviewing hemp/organic cotton as "bad" or "sucks" clearly aren't following the directions for the hemp. You have to treat these differently than the stay dry.
Best Bottom clearly says in directions on the site that the hemp will not reach its full absorbancy until after 4-6 washes! Hello people do some research. That is why you are not having success with them and experiencing leaks.
The store I bought them from gives "prepping" directions for hemp before you even wear them which you can find all over the internet. Boil them for 3-5 minutes per insert in stock pot. Or just washing them 4-6 times before use. Another fast way is washing with dish soap but I prefer the other methods.
Not a huge deal to prep but you do need to take that into consideration when dealing with hemp. The reason for this is the natural oils that are on the hemp. When not prepped correctly you can experience leaks.
Overall I still like the stay dry. It's inexpensive and works well.
