Re: Boiling prefolds to prep them...a picture tutorial

New to this all. Trying to decide where to start. I have a whole bunch of prefolds from just target. DS is almost 7 wks would these work? Oh and I didnt know that had to be prepped. OH this is going to be a headache to get started. If only I knew about this when I had dd 3 yrs ago.

Re: Boiling prefolds to prep them...a picture tutorial

I just boiled 2 dozen new pfs without dawn (or any dish soap). I boiled them for 30 minutes then did 2 cycles of wash, dry, wash dry. They are super soft and amazingly absorbant!!! I love boiling to cut down on the prep time!!!

Thanks for this! I'm doing mine right now and needed some tips!

BTW, I kicked my DH out of the house so he doesn't make fun of me!
