SECONDS means not first quality but second quality. It does NOT mean second-hand.  All diapers are new but have some sort of a flaw or something minor wrong with them that makes them not first quality.   

Cloth-eez Oeko-Tex certified made of unbleached organic cotton prefolds diapers.

In dozens only.

Stock Status: SOLD OUT.  These stocked at 11:30 am EDT Wednesday, June 24.

Prices vary by size. Please visit the Detailed Information link to learn more and see pictures on babies. The pictures can help you choose your correct size. Sizes overlap and are approximate.

Seconds are new, unused, not returns, not washed. Seconds means second quality, or "b" grade or "irregular"

Seconds does NOT mean second hand.

If you want first quality, buy first quality.  Please read this page.

What makes them seconds? For the most part, I really can't tell but there is something wrong with every diaper that is a second. They are marked with a black mark, usually on the tag if there is a tag.  There are many things than can be wrong that can make a diaper not meet "first quality" standards.

Most often the cut is a bit small or short. It is possible that an edge isn't quite straight. Sometimes a layer is not quite flat. It will matter less after shrinkage. There could a a thin section in the weave of the fabric.  Every diaper will have something that makes it imperfect in some way. It might be this kind of error or it could be some dirt or hanging threads or whatever. Trim off a hanging thread with scissors.   If there is a major issue, use a needle and thread to repair it before you wash it.  That doesn't happen often but it could happen.

Usually cutting errors make the diaper smaller, not larger. They truly are seconds, and are sold "as-is". Seconds can be nice to have on hand to give some depth to your stash without having to spend much on diapers that really are your back-up diapers. If you wash 20 diapers at a time, you really need to have 3 dozen diapers on hand. So if you have 2 dozen first quality diapers for your main stash, your "spare" dozen can be seconds and it's ok if they are imperfect ones. Or, have a dozen seconds that you keep in various places, such as in the car, a sitter's house, or the grandparent's house, so you are never caught without a diaper on hand.

Cloth-eez® Prefolds actually fit. A diaper that fits works best. One-size-fits-all really doesn't "fit all". Does a diaper that fits a 2 year old really fit your newborn? Nope. The right size for the right age and weight works best! Diapers that fit and wash easily are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first. Well-loved.

These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. Additionally, this version of the prefold diapers is made of organic cotton.

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. Be realistic about the longevity of any diapering item and don't be wowed but unrealistic claims. They are durable and last very well but not forever.  They wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". The twill weave allows pins to slide through them easily without making holes in the fabric.  But you don't have to fasten them.  You can just fold the diaper in thirds and place it in a wrap style cover.  You will not be disappointed in these wonderful, versatile diapers. There are many brands of prefolds on the market, but 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. These diapers are exclusive to GMD and are not available anywhere else, and are not marketed under any other brand name but Cloth-eez®. You will find the "prefold love" with Cloth-eez® prefolds. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.

How to choose which version? The organic version is made of organically grow unbleached cotton and may be the most durable but the differences are slight among the kinds. It can be hard to tell them apart. The main difference is in the way the cotton was grown in the field. There is something nice and enjoyable about organically grown.

One FREE pair of pins per order is available with purchase of this item when you add the pins to your cart through this Link.

Please wash several times before first use. Expect to wash them through quite a few preparation cycles 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. Yes, Tide is ok or whatever you happen to like but we do recommend unscented versions for use around a baby.

Clotheez Seconds

I ordered a set of Clotheez prefolds seconds not knowing exactly what to expect. We have been using the prefolds and needed the next size up but weren’t sure if we wanted the same style (vs workhorse) for our constantly moving boy. The sale was worth it! The quality is on par with our regular set, I just had to clip a few loose strings. The seams might not be perfect, but they are diapers and they function as well as my normal set. I recommend seconds to anyone wanting to save a bit!

Excellent quality!

The seconds prefolds we received are great quality and you have to look very closely to see any flaws. None of them required any fixing at all. I'm pretty impressed that even GMD seconds make such good additions to our cloth stash.

So happy!

We bought some newborn size for a future baby. These look fantastic, and you can hardly tell a difference compared to the first quality ones. Maybe a slightly crooked edge here and there that I wouldn't have noticed unless I was looking for it, but who cares? This really is such a good deal and I am so excited to be able to use them!

Seconds? More like firsts!

(Novice size) Honestly, I feel like I got a great deal for full quality. I saw maybe 1 loose stitich or stitch out of place. They've been washed aboout 7 times: hot or warm wash, dried on various settings. We use them pad folded for our toddler boy 23months. Sometimes will use a clotheez insert to extend time between diaper changes. But the prefold along works great in covers or pocket diapers. I got them to replace lesser quality prefolds and chose this size to use for a future babe. I think they will definitely last through another.

Seconds? No way!

I’ve had prefolds since my kiddo was 7lbs. He’s now 2+y and 30lbs, this is my first XL purchase (still using the brown edges for my long, narrow guy) and I figured I’d see what ‘seconds’ were all about. I really can’t tell much difference between my prior regular prefolds and these new ‘seconds’ aside from their being sized up. When they say there’s nothing wrong with seconds, they really mean it. Happy I took the chance and grabbed some before they sold out!
