diaper liners

Postby Autumn2000 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:35 am

Anyone have any opinions about Imse Vimse flushable liners vs. GroVia bioliners?

I don't plan on flushing them. I don't trust the plumbing in my 1932 house to handle it so that's not really an issue. I'm just wondering if anyone had a really good or bad experience with either brand. The Imse Vimse are $2 cheaper so those are the ones I'll get unless someone tells me otherwise. TIA!


ETA: I was wrong about the price. They are the same.

I never liked the flushable kind (I think I had the imse vimse ones) they always bunched up in his lil butt crack as soon as they got wet and then they were sort of pointless. So I don't know if one brand is better than the other.

bwolfe - I am glad you wrote that. I have been asking people who purchase them for a review, but havent gotten any real feedback yet. Your response confirms what I feared about them. I sell the liners (bummis) but I dont use them. It seems to take away from the purpose of cloth diapering IMO, but I can see where they are good for those who dont use sprayers. I will just stick with my sprayer.

I don't have a sprayer and have decided that I don't want to install one. I had a few liners that I got back when I did the Jillian's Drawers trial program and I liked them but I'm not sure which brand they were. DD is pretty regular with her pooping so I'll just use them a few times a day and for me, the purpose of CDing is strictly to save money. A liner in a CD a few times a day is cheaper than using a disposable. I'm going to see if I can figure out which one is larger and go with that one I think.

I use Tiny Tush Flushable liners. I don't flush them cause they clog up our slow toilets.

I love them. They come 100 for $6.95. I don't have a sprayer, so this is a great option for me. I put one on my baby all the time (he poops just about every diaper) but with DS1 he only poops at night and nap time, so I can get away with just a liner at those times.

MomTo2Boys - your little boys eyes are beautiful!

Liners are definitely inexpensive, I just dont want to have to throw away anything. More of a lazy thing on my part than a green thing, it is also why I only use cloth wipes - I hated separating wipes for the trash & diapers to the wash, I like just putting everything in the laundry.
I like hearing the reviews on the liners - it seems people either love them or really dont like them. I've never read a neutral review of them.

Autumn 2000 - Bummis makes a small liner 5x12 & a large liner 7.5x12 - the small ones are 6.00 per 100 & the large are 8.00 per 100 (but you know I put a coupon code on here for 5% off for tww users - twwcloth05)

Thanks for the info! I ended up ordering the Imse Vimse ones. I got 200 for $9.99. I read on some reviews that if they are not soiled that they actually wash up just fine and can be reused and that this will work for a few times. I'll give it a try if I accidentally "waste" one on a non-poopy diaper.

Thanks :) I think so too. They just melt my heart. No one in our immediate family has blue eyes, so I really hope they stay this color!

I tried the IV type and they did seem sturdy enough to wash. I hope they work for you!

I know a few people who *love* using liners but I didn't have the patience for them. I got frustrated in about a week, got a sprayer, and found the sprayer to be a much better solution for us.

My son is on Neocate formula which makes his poo oily, black/green and a complete mess!! I have to use the liners or all of my dipes would be stained. I just started using them, though..about 2 weeks ago.

I love them, but with the new baby, I won't use them (breastfed poo)

just thought I'd share my reason for using and that I actually like them.

I would like to know if that works - that would be awesome if it does!!

Also, FYI - I dont carry them, but I read that the Tiny Tush liners are 8x12, so I think that is the biggest of any out there - I just dont know how strong they are.

Mom - I think with eyes like that - they will stay!!

I make my own liners by cutting up old cotton t-shirts that would normally be thrown away. If they get poop on them, I throw them away and if it's just a pee, it gets thrown into the diaper pail and used again. I've never tried the disposable kind, but I had a huge stash of old t-shirts since DH is always getting food or coffee on himself and all he wears around the house are plain white tees. I'm pretty happy with this solution - it might be worth a try if it turns out you don't like the flushables.

I used flushable liners. We are not allowed to install diaper sprayers over here, something to do with the plumbing systems. Anyway, I loved my liners for solid poo. Most of the poo would sit on the liner and I could just pick it up and throw it in the toilet without getting any poo on myself, the toilet or the nappy itself.

We used them all the time because DD was fond of doing a surprise poo. If they just got wet I would chuck them in with the wash and then reuse them. I could reuse them at least four or five times before they started to disintegrate. Then I would just chuck them away.

Good idea! I don't have a lot of extra rags to use, but once I'm done with the 200 liners I ordered, I might try this solution out for a bit.

+1 this is what i do!! you can buy fleece/flannel at craft stores for like 3 bucks a yard, and a yard makes about 100 liners!
