Diaper Service

Lately been wondering when we can have our own diaper service one-stop center? I'm pretty sure one day you'll find worn out velcro, falling snaps, problematic fleece layer of the pocket diaper, torn PUL layers, loose elastic... and lots more... which I think it is possible to be repaired rather than throw away or sell as second, huh?

I'm facing this problem inside the PUL pocket diaper... it looks like there is one layer is slowly "peeling off" from the PUL cloth...


I'm not sure whether this can be repaired and where to send to for such service?

Time to toss it? So sayang lah... This is also one of the problem when you have it as the favourite diaper or if you don't have a big stash to rotate often... *Sigh* Mind you, I only have 8 pocket diapers in total to rotate on 7 days...

Recently, I have sent my Dream Eze fitted and Grobaby soakers for elastic repair at Missah's (babymyluv.com) in Sabah. I send via courier since I can't bear the agony of waiting for the dipes to reach their destination! She does a great job, as expected. She mentioned that she would put up a special category for cloth diaper service and repair in her website soon. I believe there are many SAHMs and WAHMs in West Malaysia who are capable to do such repair work....just ask around.:)

I know elastic, snaps, and velcro can be fixed, but PUL is a LOT harder. I know there are certain waterproofing sprays sold in the US that can be sprayed on occasionally to broken PUL to keep it waterproof, but I don't think they have any here. When the PUL on my bumwear cracked and peeled I ended up throwing them all away. Thinking back on it I should have kept them and given them away to someone who wanted to use them as covers instead of pocket dipes.

Contact the manufacturer of the diaper. Most reputable diaper manufacturers have good return/repair policies and/or warranties.
