For my cloth diaper mommies do you prefer white, unbleached or organic inserts/prefolds?

Also what is the difference if any between white and unbleached...the descriptions say the white are whitened with a peroxide bleach solution maintaining a low pH level to help avoid any skin allergies...is that really true? I would think that unbleached is better for your skin.

The organic are nice because you are supporting organic agriculture. The unbleached are nice if you don't want to pay organic prices but like the natural color. The white ones are nice because they don't take as long to prep, much of the oils are already removed by the bleaching process.

Some people claim that one or the other are softer but I never noticed a big difference. I have bought all 3 and don't really prefer any one to the others.

We get the organic just bc we try to stay as natural as possible with these things. We've never gotten the unbleached or white so I couldn't compare that.

You should pose this question in the cloth diaper forum and you'd get more responses probably.

I liked the unbleached but those were my only experience.

I've only ever used unbleached prefolds.

I am getting organic because I feel like if I am going to put the effort into cloth diapering, I want to be as natural as possible. I don't have any experience though!

I have unbleached and bleached just because that was what was on sale at the time. I haven't noticed much of a difference in softness
