Definition: The diaper is the absorbent part and the cover is the waterproof part that goes over the diaper.
This kit is for those who want to give cloth diapering a try. You might decide that buying 2, 3 or 4 of these kits might make sense to build your stash.
This kit includes:
Organic Unbleached or Organic White? What is the difference? 1. The fabric color. 2. The number of initial ("prep") cycles needed. Other than that, they are the same. The white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brigheners. Fewer preparation wash cycles are needed since we have already removed the natural cotton oils. The organic unbleached version still has the natural cotton oils and is tan in color. Unbleached needs more initial wash cycles to wash off those natural cotton oils than white does, but that is a one-time thing.
I immediately noticed how soft the workhorses are. I read that ppl said the natural unbleached are softer and i would agree. Granted, I'm sure over time the softness will decrease but i have bleached medium workhorses and those are still doing great with 5 months in. Baby is 6mo old now, weights 21 pounds and fits these workhorses well with room to grow.
Absolutely love these!
The fitted diapers do a fantastic job keeping poop in so the cover does not get soiled with poop. I find they work better for that then the prefolds. Great buy, definitely need more then this to do cloth full time with my one year old.
Love this kit! We used workhorse with our first two and gave them away when we were done. Then surprise baby number three! This kit makes it super simple. Karen has the ratios just right. We bought three kits for our one year old and its perfect. The wipes are extra awesome :)
