I made this yesterday and for the most part it feels right and the leak guards that I sewn in work great. However the fabric does not soak up the wetting. I think its because I have not ran the soaker pad through the washing machine. It is my first one so I actually am really impressed with how well it turned out. I just would like some opinions on what I could do to improve the padding's ability to soak up a wetting.
The problem is not in the amount of fabric but rather that the liquid just rolls around on the fabric and wont soak in all the way.
