Ripped Prefolds,What did I do wrong?

I'm new to cloth and don't have anyone to ask questions to forgive me if I'm full of them

I bought some used infant prefolds off Craigslist yesterday and when I bought them they looked fine. The mom I bought them from said they had never been washed in bleach so I went ahead with the sale

Today I washed 3 of them in hot water with a tiny bit of Purex and now all three of them have holes in the middle(where the dipe is thickest)

What did I do wrong? Can I still use them,until my fluffy mail starts to roll in?

Heck yeah, you can use them! That is a bummer about the rips- maybe she used a snappi on them?

Could I actually not put enough diapers in the wash? Right now I have a very limited supply and a big time pooping 8wk old so as soon as I change her I wash the dipe and cover. Could the machine agitate to hard ripping the diaper. Also what kind of stains does sunning take out. I noticed when I took the first dipe out of the wash there was a little poo stain, even though I ran it through two rinse cycles.Will sunning remove that maybe?

So sorry about your pfds. The good thing is they are one of the lesser expensive dipes though

You can try sunning them after they come out of the wash. If that doesn't work, try a little lemon juice and then sun them. It should come right out.
