You can keep the velcro looking nice by doing a couple things. If you're having issues with the tabs coming undone and attacking other diapers you can put your diaper shells into a delicates bag when you wash them. This will protect the shells from getting caught on things and should keep the velcro looking much nicer. Also, line drying your shells will extend the life of the velcro significantly. The high heat of the dryer can cause the velcro strip and laundry tabs to get fuzzy and worn out.
