Fluffy Tips #1 – How To Keep Your GroVia H&L Looking New

Fluffy Tips #1 – How To Keep Your GroVia H&L Looking New

I LOVE my GroVia AI2 hook and loop diapers.  They’re actually one of my top diapers at the moment.  Well you could imagine my confusion when I hear so many people talk about their dislike of GroVia hook and loop closures.  I heard complaints of curling and cracking the most, so I thought I’d share some tips with you all on how I keep my hook and loop closures looking perfect wash after wash.

First off, you need to make sure to secure your hook and loop closures properly before putting your diapers into the washing machine.  GroVia details how to do this on their site, but I’m sure most of you haven’t even seen it.  You know those little loops of fabric that go over the laundry tabs?  They are there for a reason.  You need to secure your hook closures to the laundry tabs UNDER the loops.  Make sure that your tabs are laying nice and flat on the laundry tabs before throwing your diapers in the wash.  Watch my video to see how to do this.  Why is this so important?  As you can see in my video, putting the tabs under the loops is the key feature to making sure that your tabs stay secure in the wash and do not stick to anything else.

The second step to keeping your hook and loop closures looking nice is to smooth them out before laying them out to dry.  This tip I learned over time on my own.  I realized that if I just hang my diaper covers straight out of the washing machine then the wing tabs would curl.  To solve this problem I make sure to completely smooth out both wing tabs before hanging my diapers to dry.  Watch my video to see how to do this.  Why is this so important?  If your wing tabs are curling then they won’t secure to your diaper as well as when flat, they will be more prone to cracking, and they will look aesthetically unpleasing. 

So there you have it!  I hope this helps with any woes you’ve had with GroVia hook and loop closures, or any other diaper company that uses touch tape.  Who knows… these tips might just make touch tape your new favorite closure.

If you would like to purchase any of these diapers for your little one, then please visit GroVia's website or help support this blog by visiting one of my affiliate stores: Kelly's ClosetSweetbottoms Baby Boutique or Diaper Junction.

  1. I'm so glad you posted this! A little late for now, but I may be replacing some so I'll do it from now on!

  2. See I noticed that loop right away so I always palced it underneath.

  3. I have been using my Grovias for a couple months and never knew to put the tabs under the loops! Thanks for the tips!
