Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

IMO they work, but not as well. I use them in conjunction with a hemp insert. I do not feel comfortable using them by themselves.

Sorry that you are dealing wiht this. All of my free inserts have been actual inserts not towels.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

i use the auto section towels too (from walmart) to stuff the couple pockets that we have left around here and trifolded and doubled up in the wet zone under a fleece topped doubler in a qleros AIO overnight. No leaks! I'm not that familar with others so i don't know if they are as good but the auto section ones can be a little more work and still be worth it because of the price

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

hmmm....i don't know what i would do honestly. i'll probably end up just buying the auto section ones myself...but if they said they come w/inserts i would expect inserts not towels. so maybe complain and get some money back, or see if they'll take the towels back and sew them into inserts for you?

I have the Vroom auto towels from Target. I wrap them around a hemp insert for my heavy wetter and that's a great system for us! However, it sucks that you were duped. I don't think a towel isthe same as a specific insert.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I think yes. I have always just used microfiber inserts but last night used two towels in DS's pocket. He went from 10 PM until 8 am w/o a leak & his bum was bone dry.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I LOVE my towels. The first stack I got off Ebay. I got another stack at Walmart in the automotive section. I tri fold one with a trifold chinese cloth and use them during the day in our FB. I use two towels trifold and a micro insert (FB) with a FB at night. They work really well.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I have the towels and yes they do work very nicely. Actually I prefer the to fold them myself because they get cleaner when they open up vs the sewn together variety's. And microfiber is sometimes bad to get the stinkies. I do think though since you expected inserts you should call them and complain.

Re: Do Microfiber towels REALLY work?

I made some inserts out of prefold diapers. They don't not to hold as much liquid as microfiber per unit area. Is this what everyone else has noticed? If so, what is the going rate for microfiber? Also, the automotive microfiber that everyone is talking about- isn't that stiff and hard in the diaper??

I love the trifold ones b/c you can put other inserts inside it for more absorbency
