UBCPF-- a newbie question about prepping them

I hope you will bear with me..... I'm new here so hopefully this is an okay question to ask on this forum.

I understand that you need to wash UBCPF in hot water several times or boil them prior to use. This may sound silly, but do you have to fully dry them after each hot wash before washing them again? If you boil them, how many times do you need to do a hot wash before using them? Is it okay to line dry them when prepping, or is the dryer preferable for "fluffing" them up?

Thanks for your help

In the beginning the dryer will help you get them dried faster so they can be washed again. This is the hard part, but I actually enjoyed doing this because I don't mind doing laundry. You wash and dry them at least 5 times so they can get to some absorbency and then you will notice each time you wash them they will become even more absorbent. Anyways if you want that fluffy look, the dryer is the best. Oh yeah you bought a great diaper too!
