Pre-washing Q

Postby lucyd » Mon May 07, 2012 8:38 am

I've just ordered a load of new LLs through the AMAZING offer on their website. Desperate to use them asap as pockets are failing us big time. When I'm pre-washing, do I need to dry them in between washes, or can I just run the machine three times in a row and then dry them afterwards?

We didn't bother drying in between.

No need to dry between prewashes
Just turn the machine back on again!

I did about 3 prewashes when I first started using cloth- but now I'm too impatient and just use albeit knowing that they won't be up to full absorbant until they've been washed a few times!

Fab - apparently they're being delivered tomorrow (hope I don't miss the courier while on the school run) so might have them in service by Weds. Excited!
