? about new prefolds

So I know you have to wash them 2-3 times in hot water in order to prep them for use but are you supposed to dry them too 2-3 times?

Drying is not necessary. In fact when I washed mine, I would stop the rinse cycle and restart the hot wash cycle when I could catch it. Are the unbleached or bleached. I have some of both and found that my unbleached took 5-7 hot washes and I even added a pot of boiling water to the already hot wash water. I didn't use any detergent, but I have heard that you can add a dime size amount of Dawn dish detergent to the wash as well and it will help.

HTH, good luck w/ your new PF, I love my PF that is all we use.
