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

Thank you so much! I ADORE picture tutorials and think there should be a picture tutorial sticky or maybe a whole forum (right word?) for these that could include diaper chatter ones, craft chat ones, thrifty family ones, etc).

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

if you boil them for 20-60 minutes will they shrink beyond what they would have if you would have washed and dryed them 6-8 times?

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

thanks mama!! ijust LOVE picture tutorials. and i have GMD prefolds on the way...yipee!! i think this is just the nudge to go buy a big stock pot mine is only 8 qts and i have been wanting a big one for quite some time. now, what size should i get? i'm thinking 16qt, cause i like to make big batches of stock. but they have 20qt too...decisions, decisions

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

I'm so glad I found this!

I boiled DD's CPFs when we first started CDing, and I have a dozen UBIPFs that are sitting in a box waiting to be prepped. I was wondering how hard it was going to be to get them ready to wear, but I see it won't be as bad as I feared! Great tutorial!

I prepped mine in a big pot used for water baths for canning- it was huge and I prepped 4 dzn. in no time flat.
