Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I just ordered a dozen FB's and 6 HH's the website said free microfiber insert with each diaper, well they came with the towels. I have never used the towels, do they really work or should I order some new inserts?

I'd like to know, too. I'd be mad though if they said you'd get inserts and instead you got towels-that's shady!

And what type of towels are we talking? The soft cloths to dry cars or the stiffer, absorbant cloths?

I love them!
I got 20 towels from Target for like $10. I use two, trifold them, so it becomes 6 layers... and they hold pee really well for several hours. DS is not that big of a wetter during the day.
He does most of his nursing at night.

I have the towels from walmart that I have to fold myself and they work just as good as a mf insert. I use them at night along with a mf insert and they work great!

Some towels are superior to others, but the towels and premade inserts are made from the same thing, just look different, so they should be just as absorbant I use mf towels of many different types and like them all!

They are the towels you have to fold yourself. I am actually really bummed about these. I just looked on the website again and it says free insert with every diaper, I guess that is my fault I should have found out what type of insert was included. Whenever I have gotten free inserts before they were always the sewn together ones, not the towels.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I got mine at Costco, (Auto section) and I love them! I either use one or two, depending on where we are, what we are doing. I like them better than the actual inserts that came with my FB!

I may just sew them up though so I don't have to fold them...

Sorry you are disappointed with yours...

I like them ok and they work probably just as good as the regular inserts but I like the regular inserts better just cause i dont' like to fold the towels. And i always seem to bunch them up when i use them . I'd be kinda P!ssed if i was told my dipes were coming with inserts and they actually came with microfiber towels. Thats happened to me twice now

just so you know, if you sew them all the way closed, they will take forever to dry. I would rather tri-fold them, than spend extra time in the dryer.
