Whats with Charcoal??

I'm new to cloth diapering and my mind has been overwhelmed with the whole new world of CD - so if you don't mind me asking - what's with the Charcoal liners?? Do they work better? Have any of you had better experiences with them as opposed to regular liners? Any help for a beginner?

Re: Whats with Charcoal??

Are you speaking of charcoal inserts? I read this article quite a while ago and it helped me make up my mind about them. http://www.ecobabysteps.com/2013/06/...arcoal-bamboo/

Personally, I think they are a gimmick and it's best to go with cotton and hemp or blends thereof when it comes to inserts.

I was wondering what was up with them too. Seems like they would stain less so that seems like a plus anyway.

Great article. I cloth diaper for environmental reason mostly and steer clear of anything that seems too good to be true.

I like mine because they don't stain like my white microfiber, and they absorb well.

Funny that website is so anti import diapers and fibers and yet they sell diapers made overseas... just saying.
