I was curious about how Alva Baby cloth diapers compared to other diapers that are also made in China and appear identical, but cost much more.
So, I bought one, posted photos of it, and have been washing it constantly for the past 5 months. Even if it hadn’t been used, I threw it in with every load of diapers I washed, and I also dried it in the dryer every time, while I typically hang my diapers to dry. Despite the instructions not to exceed 95 degrees F, I haven’t had any damage or delamination of the PUL.
However, I only bought/tested one diaper. Had I done this with two dozen, 23 may have been damaged, I really don’t know.
The disappointing thing was how quickly the design washed away. The Mickey design was embossed in the minky and colored red, which disappeared in just a few washes.
No judgement or commentary on what diapers anyone chooses to purchase, I just wanted to share my findings.
