so mine came in the other day & now i'm washing them. i have 18 chinese 4x8x4 unbleached prefolds. instructions i have say to wash 3-5 times in hot water & dry in between. is a cold rinse okay since they're brand new & just trying to get them to be absorbent?
also, since i'm washing them so many times, do i need a 2nd rinse each time or maybe just the last 2 to remove any detergent residue? (i only put in like 1/4 of the mfg recommended detergent amt for a full load)
and i dry them on low? right?
okay, on to wearing...they seem so big and the covers so small. how do i fold them to fit inside the liners??? i have thirsties covers and prorap classic covers. do i fold them lengthwise? or the shorter way for a nb?
sorry for the silly questions. Thanks!
