Bleached versus Unbleached Cloth Diapers versus Unbleached Organic.
Bleached 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 have 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 absorbent. 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 absorbent. You can test the absorbency by making a pocket of the diaper and slowly pouring 1/2 cup of liquid into the diaper. If it 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 absorbent. Do not, under any circumstance, use fabric softener 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 manmade 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 significantly more. Organic fitted diapers are sold as a separate item.
