Prepping berry plush inserts

How do you go about prepping BP inserts? I had heard wash them on hot four or five times by themselves (since they are hemp and would ruin the other dipes). Is this accurate?

Also, how would you rate BP in terms of absorbency? My baby is a super soaker, it turns out, and I need some heavy duty dipes!

I washed mine about 8 times before I used them. It does take a while for those soakers to reach full absorbancy. As for the absorbancy overall, I haven't had any problems with them as long as I change them like I would any of my other CD's....about every 2.5 hours or so. I have a couple with embroidery that wick, but that is not the fault of the BR itself, it is just how the embroidery was done unfortunately.....otherwise, they are awesome and super cute!

Re: Prepping berry plush inserts

BP's are working great for my super soaker now that they are FULLY prepped.

The quickest and easiest way I've found is the dishwasher method, because the water gets SO hot and brings the oils to the surface better then the washing machine method.

I would say it takes about 4 rounds in the dishwasher versus 10 in my washing machine.

In the washing machine I would add at least 1, maybe as many as 3, large pots of BOILING water to the wash. It helps a lot.

Oh no.... what do you mean you can not wash the help soakers with other diapers?
