Re: Boiling prefolds to prep them...a picture tutorial

So if I boil it once for 20 minutes with a squirt of Dawn, one more time without, wash and dry on hot with a presoak and extra rinse once without detergent, and once again with detergent, they should be fully prepped? That would save so much time! It usually takes between 8-10 washes with my FL. Thanks! I'd given up on buying new PFs solely because of the prepping process. Now I can try those new GMD reds!

I've also heard putting baking soda in the wash will help them prep faster, if anyone else is doing this. Haven't tried it though.
