Leaking prefold covers

Is there any salvaging a prefold cover made from PUL that has the water resistant layer damaged? My dryer is broken and got too hot and now my covers are all leaking straight through the bottom. Am I going to have to buy all new ones?

My guess is they need to be replaced.

I really hoping someone would have a magic fix. These are all brand new, only about a month old. V_V

They need to be replaced. Fixing them would cost more than buying new ones. That's why you're not supposed to put them in the dryer at all. They take such a short time to hang dry since they don't absorb any water at all, they're basically just drip drying.

Really?  I was told that you're supposed to put them in the dryer the first time and every now and then to seal any tiny holes in the poly.

I've heard that too, but I've never done it. I would probably try it if my PUL was leaking, but I've never had PUL (aside from fuzzibunz which I just didn't like) leak at all.
