prepping questions?

I once knew this.

How many washes for unbleached flats and bleached prefolds until they are fully prepped?

TIA

5-10 times. I just prep 5 times and then knowingly use them they get more absorbent the more they are used.

Re: prepping questions?

Back in the day I boiled them as well so I didn't have to do as many washes. Maybe did 2 afterward.

bleached is less, like 3-5... versus 5-8 for unbleached.
