Can this be fixed?

(Picture of the inside of bag)

Not sure if you can tell from the photo but the waterproof plasticky layer is coming away from the material layer on one of my nappy wet bags. I have had it about 6 months now so is the normal or do they usually have a longer 'life' than that? Is there a way I can fix it or should I just leave it be (has made it seem quite flimsy at that bit and keep thinking it's going to rip).

I don't know, sorry.
Perhaps @littlesez or @docmaggoo might know?

It's called delaminating.
When the PUL later is separating from the fabric.

You could try putting it through the tumble dryer on a low heat to see if it will reveal seal.

It'll still work as it is. We had loads of Lenny lamb wraps that delaminates but still worked fine.

Ok great, thanks. I'll take it round to my parents and stick it in their tumble drier to see if that does the trick. It's good to know that it is still just as usable anyway though :thumbsup:

Tumble drying it will work.
