I'm sure this has been asked a bunch, for which I apologize, but I tried to google it and got so many conflicting answers that I wanted real life input. I have 36 unbleached prefolds that need to be prepped. I read that boiling them can help save time, but I don't really want to take 3 hours to boil 6 at a time for 30 minutes. Have any of you boiled for less time, like 10 minutes? Do you recommend using Dawn when you boil, or is it unnecessary? When I do put them in the wash, can I run a short cycle to save energy, or does it need to be a normal one? And will boiling them be as effective as washing them 5 times? I really just can't imagine washing them that many times before they've even been used. Thanks!
