Hello. This may be a bit off topic. But, I'm working on making dog diapers & have been reading your posts & others. I'm having some difficulty figuring out the right liner combo.
Right now if I use my fleece (microfiber, washed/dried) it's not pulling the water through. I placed it over flanel pieces thinking that would pull it through, and no luck. If I rub the water, it will finally go through.
Also, I read on another site about Warm & Natural batting for another liner to absorb, and that's acting like the fleece for me & not pulling it.
Please help. ~Tonya

Make sure it's microfleece instead of polar or blizzard fleece, since microfleece lets liquid through more easily, and make sure you're not using dryer sheets when you dry them, as that can cause water to bead up instead of absorb.

Also, for children at least, it's not a problem if you drip water on it and it sits there instead of going through. Stay-dry fabrics like fleece need some pressure, and it works fine on a child when the child pees. Now I'm not sure how well the diaper fits on a dog, so I don't know if it would cause a problem or not. Keep us posted!

Great! Thank you so much. I washed/dried (no dryer sheets) 4x now & it was much better! I've read about Zorb (good & bad) any thoughts on that?
