Reviving Kissaluvs fitteds?

I bought some used kissaluvs cotton fleece fitteds here on DS. They are very crusty/crunchy, if that makes any sense (probably why they were so cheap). I'm wondering if there is a way to revive them or strip them (I'm a FTM so I'm still very new to CDing) to make the fleece soft again. Any ideas/suggestions?

The fabric softener? I'll give it a try. Thanks for the tip. I never use fabric softener, but that brand seems like it might be ok--all natural, safe for babies.

They were probably line dried, that's why they are so crunchy. Try a quick hot wash and dryer routine to see if they soften up some

I agree with pp. When I line dry, my prefolds feel a little crunchy. I just shake them (once they're dry) and they soften right up. I bet a cycle in the dryer would also fluff them. Good luck.

Add a natural fabric softener in the final rinse(Ecover is one there are others you can use as well). Then dry in the dryer. Should make them nice and soft. Have fun with your new little one.

I have tried the dryer already--didn't make a difference unfortunately but I'm curious about the fabric softener idea. What's the best natural one you've used?
