Re: Q's about prepping and stripping..Pls help!

Yes after prepped you can wash it all together. Used covers wouldn't have to stripped though I have never heard of a 100% cotton cover -- how does it prevent leaks?

Yes you can wash PUL covers with the "microfiber prep" it's not really a prep, its like washing your underwear once before wearing -- its probably not REALLY needed but...

I use biokleen oxygen bleach. It's more natural and not evil for the environment.

"prep" is removing the natural oil in natural fibers. I would would prep the hemp and prefolds together yes. Hemp might have more oils than cotton -- but as you are prepping it would all get washed away.

I did use wool briefly but I am not as versed in that. Check youtube or google it there is lots of instructions.
