Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds". These are hard-to-find, top quality, heavyweight 100 % cotton twill diapers. These are the real thing, and so very well made. They are far superior to the store bought kind, and will stand up to repeated washings, but of course no diaper lasts forever so don't believe unrealistic claims. Using prefolds is a very economical way to diaper! It works very well. Plus, they wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". Use a Snappi Fastener, Boingo or pins to fasten it for a very secure fit. Or, just fold the diaper in thirds and place it in a wrap style cover. You will find the "prefold love". We feel these are the very best fabric, 100% Indian cotton, 4-8-4 ply, with the strongest edge stitching available, and custom sized for prefold perfection, exclusive to GMD. They are not available online anywhere else, and are not marketed under any other brand name but Cloth-eez®.
100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
They are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO TEX® and of course meet CPSIA standards, too.
This version is unbleached cotton. Unbleached cotton is usually the softest and fluffiest of the three versions (white, unbleached or organic). But it can be hard to tell them apart and the difference is slight in the first place. Please wash several times before first use to wash off the natural cotton oils before full absorbency is reached. This "prepping" (4 or more wash cycles) is a one-time thing. Link to more washing information.
Please note that you can use any mainstream laundry detergent on cotton diapers. You do not need to purchase "special for cloth diapers" detergents. We do not sell them and they are not needed on prefolds or Workhorse diapers. Keep it simple. Use what you would normally use on your regular household laundry, however we strongly recommend fragrance choices for all laundry products around baby.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
I just ordered another dozen of the size Medium unbleached prefolds because both my daughters have worn that size primarily for over a year and my older ones were starting to show the wear. With kid #3 on the way, I figure another dozen will be well-used. Neither of my girls ever made it to the large size before they were potty trained (they are on the smaller side and we just fold the diapers into the covers). The older ones can still be used for sure; they are just starting to fray at the edges a bit, but remain highly absorbent.
We added these to our stash due to a sale. We had a set of organic cotton ones already and needed more. Unfortunately, we either have not prepped them enough or correctly, or they are less absorbent than the organic ones. We are have many, many leaks but are hoping the problem will be fixed with a few more washes.
Thank you for your review. We recommend always checking for full absorbency after three or four hot cycles with detergent and other laundry (friction is a part of the prepping process) prior to baby wearing the diapers. Once they are fully prepped they should work the same as your organic ones of the same size.
My daughter has been cloth diapered since birth but rarely with a prefold. Honestly, we used these as kitchen towels/wash cloths/cleaning rags and they are great for that!
Very absorbent and easy to use. I love how you can take prefolds ... and fold them to fit your baby’s body.
