simplex prepping

How many washes before use? I read just one. To they shrink at all? I'm guessing no because they are bleached?

Re: simplex prepping

I just washed one one time and and going to put it on her tomorrow. I wasnt sure how the fit would be so I only got one and think I am going to adore it and wish I had a million.

Re: simplex prepping

We LOVE our Simplex here.

No shrinking. And with the birdseye, one wash (for US) and they have been ready-to-go!

I just do one wash and change a little sooner through a few more washes. They do shrink some, the birdseye quilts up and fits better in the PUL. I only have sized though, so I don't know about the OS.

Re: simplex prepping

Just one. I am obsessed with the Simplex and have almost a full stash of them for DS3. I'm planning to sell off a lot of our other diapers and use these and flats/pockets/covers.
