bumGenius Refresher Kits include three new pieces of elastic (back elastic, two legs) new tab closures and new laundry tabs. Each kit also includes instructions for sewing your diaper refresh kits into your bumGenius cloth diapers.
I was bummed when my Velcro stopped working and dreaded having to replace it, it seemed a bit daunting. But then I found these kits! They were so easy to use, I replaced Velcro on 4 diapers in under an hour. And they are working great again! I haven't had to do the elastic yet, but am happy to have that for whenever I need to do it. Great product for a great price that made my job a lot easier!!
Over all very easy to replace, even for someone who doesn't sew very often. Directions were very easy to follow. I didn't need the elastic yet, but glad to have it in case I need to replace that at a later time. Much like everyone else said I wish you would include the front velcro section. Even with the new tabs I still need to replace that front piece before the velcro will work again.
I have had to replace the velcro on all of my diapers, yes 3.0's and 9mos used 4.0's. I'm glad these cheap refresher kits are an option otherwise I'd be madder than I am. I am frustrated that I am having to replace the velcro, especially the "improved" velcro on the 4.0's that we only got 9mos out of. CB told me it was my fault, not theirs, but my diapers are in mint condition other than the velcro. I wash/dry exactly as CB indicates. I echo what some other users have said, I don't need the elastic, only the laundry tabs and PLEASE provide the front tab and instructions for replacing. Several of my diapers are completely unusable because this front strip is totally worn off. So much for "improved" velcro. I finally ordered my own and will be trying to figure out how to do this without ruining a perfectly good shell. I am a novice sewer and it takes me about 15mins to replace the laundry tabs. It's fairly easy, but not all that pretty in the end. I was hoping to resell my dipes when done with #2 baby, but someone will have to ignore the sewing of the new tabs. Overall, thanks CB for selling this, but it's too bad I have to do it on dipes under a year used.
I purchased 8 of these to refresh some BG Elemental diapers we have, and I'm very happy with the results for the hook and loop tabs! However, the instructions aren't very clear for replacing the elastic... Not sure how I'm going to accomplish that. Also, the word 'diaper' is misspelled on the instruction card. Of course that doesn't affect their use, but considering that this is a diapering business it seemed like a pretty big no-no to make- makes them look very unprofessional!
I am so glad I found this kit. I have 24 bumGenius 3.0 OS that I stopped using because they leaked no matter what I tried. I was meandering through the cottonbabies website wondering what to do with all those diapers when I found the Refresher Kits and realized that what my diapers needing was new elastic, so I order the kits. I just finished replacing the elastic in one diaper (a fairly easy process) and there is an OBVIOUS difference in the diapers. I'm really looking forward to getting the rest of the diapers refreshed so we can start using them again.
