Do you have stinky cloth diapers, or another issue? Each week, I answer a reader submitted question and other readers can weigh in.

I’ve been using GroVia flushable liners for about a year and love them. However, I’ve wondered about using fleece to do the same thing. What kind of fleece can I use as a liner? Are there some kinds I should avoid?
I have used the fleece liner that came with my Tots Bots Easy Fit, as well as Knickernappies fleece liners and Bumgenius fleece liners. My reason for using them was to turn non stay dry diapers into stay dry, but waste does seem to roll off of the fleece pretty easily. They are also fabulous to use with diaper cream (even “cloth safe” creams) since you don’t have to worry about repelling. Not a bad idea to use liners after your child has eaten something like beets, or blue cake frosting. Ewww!
I haven’t made my own fleece liners, but it is cost effective to do so, and you don’t need a sewing machine since fleece doesn’t fray. some of the liners I have are quite thin, but I don’t have trouble with them bunching, so I think any microfleece you find at the craft store, that feels soft and comfy would be just fine.
Have you made your own liners? What type of fleece did you use?
