Myth #3: Fleece is more work to wash than wool. While wool doesn't need to be washed as often, it requires special care and hand washing. Fleece can be machine washed and tumble dried with the other diapers, or even with regular clothes. Fabric softener, while usually a no-no in the cloth diapering world, actually helps the fleece's ability to repel. Wool and fleece both have their advantages when it comes to washing, but I personally like being able to machine wash the fleece. It just seems easier.
Not only are fleece covers effective and inexpensive, they are super cute too. Any fleece print available can be turned into a cover. Wool is cute for sure, but there aren't nursery themed prints available. I do think that a baby wearing a sweater on their butt is adorable, but so are the cute fleece prints.
I personally love love love our fleece covers. I hope after reading this article that you consider trying fleece covers too.
