Thirsties Duo ?

I have 5 (new) thirsties duos that I need to prep.  I am planning to hang dry them when we use them, but should I put them in the dryer once to help "seal" the PUL?  Also, since there are so few, do you think that I can handwash them in the sink with a little detergent?

Re: Thirsties Duo ?

  • In my experience the hemp portion of the liner takes a TON of preps to become fully absorbant.....like 5-6.  You can try and handwash, but may have some leaks for awhile.

    As for sealing the PUL...I've never done this and have had no problems, but I know some people like to do one run through the dryer, it's up to you really.

  • It's just the PUL outer covers, no inserts.  We are using them with prefolds, which we have already prepped.

    Ohhh!  Sorry, my bad.  I was just stuffing my duo diapers so had them on the brain.  If I havr a small load of CDs to prep I just do it with a load of regular laundry making sure to use a CD safe detergent and no softener.

    Thanks! It seemed silly to just wash 5 covers by themselves. Should I dry them?
