Any stores/sellers that will "prep" new prefolds?

Are there any sellers that would wash and prep prefolds before they send them out? I was thinking of getting some new ones, but I would love to have them already to wear once they get to me.

I wouldn't mind doing it for you as long as you give me a few days to get it done. I usually ship with 24 hours. Its not that big a deal to me. LMK

www.wholefamilymarket.com does it. Here's a link to their prefolds page:

http://wholefamilymarket.com/Prefold...s-p-1-c-3.html

In the drop down box you'll see an option to have them "prewashed". I think it's an extra 0.25 cents per prefold or something like that.

In the beginning, when I was trying our all kinds of CD stuff, I ordered from there & opted for the pre-wash treatment. I figure 0.25 cents per prefold (I think I was getting 12 or something), was cheaper than me doing laundry for 2 days straight & using all that water/electricity/etc so technically I guess it's a good deal.

FWIW, it may have just be an isolated case, but in my instance it took forever to receive the items + shipping was a nightmare (SLOW!!!) I think it was like 4 weeks before I got anything, ugggh....by the time they arrived I had decided I didn't want to use prefold w/covers & was already moving onto something else...LOL!!

I read that you can boil them on the stove and then wash them for much faster results.

I was wondering that too, since I can't wash on hot. I just always bought them, and hemp, used. Solved the problem and saved money lol.
