If you are new to the Cloth Diapering world, than you probably will come across a whole bunch of new and possibly strange words or terminology. One of those words might be PUL. Now what the heck does that mean?
PUL actually stands for Polyurethane Laminated. PUL is basically polyurethane that has been laminated onto a fabric. It is a type of coating that creates a sleek and smooth waterproof lining. It is commonly used in Cloth Diapers for these reasons! It has a shiny appearance to it as well. The nice part about a PUL lining is that it not only keeps the pee and poop where it is supposed to be, but it also withholds many hot washing and drying cycles.
Personally, I don't like to put my PUL covers in the dryer, I hang them dry after washing. I am hoping that this technique will help them to last even longer!!
Now you are in the know next time a diaper says it has a PUL lining!!! You can even try throwing that word around your hubby and see what he says? "Oh, I'm just going to buy some PUL online"....he will think you are buying him something! He will be impressed with your handy-woman terminology!! Ha Ha
