I luckily inherited almost 100 prefolds, but have no idea how well they were taken care of.  Is there a way I can strip them all of optical brighteners, fabric softeners, diaper cream, etc in one (or 2) super power washing or do I need to do Calgon and Dawn and everything separately?  Any tips are greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

I would probably break them up into a few loads and do some oxy-clean and then rinse a bunch. It will probably take you the weekend to get through them all.

RLR powder might do better than Dawn.  I have had better results with RLR myself.
