Itti Bitti Tutto inserts prep!?

FTM here, and we are going to primarily be using prefolds and covers for our CDing, however - I did buy 4 itti bitti tuttos before I had decided on prefolds and would obviously still like to use those too.  Well I prepped my GMD prefolds, all is good there -- however, now I'm trying to prep the inserts for the itti bittis and no matter what, they seem to still repel when I run them under water!  I'm guessing this is not normal....help!?  FYI, they are the bamboo inserts.

So far this has been my prep process:
1. Cold water rinse no detergent.
2. Hot water wash with RNG
3. Dry
4. Hot water wash with RNG, extra rinse
5. Dry
*Still repelling
6. "Boiled" (not really boiled tho, due to snaps) at about 70 degrees C, with Dawn
7. Warm rinse
8. Hot wash with RNG
9. Dry
 
Still repelling!  :(  Am I doing something wrong, or will it just repel for a while? Should I just keep hot washing/drying?  Thanks for the feedback!!

Re: Itti Bitti Tutto inserts prep!?

  • IBT inserts have a stay dry layer that will repel water that is poured over them. They need pressure to absorb liquid (like from the weight of a baby's bum). My guess, is that will work fine once you put them on your LO.

    This!  I had the same problem, it was driving me nuts. I even emailed itti bitti and they said they needed pressure and no prepping other than an initial wash.
