Wash & dry 3 time for bleached & 5 times for unbleached. Tide is fine. On super hot water.

If they are unbleached you can boil them once or twice to cut down on washing. I put all mine in the washer and then boiled 2 hugh pans of water and poured the water over the dipes in the washer and let them sit for a little while then I ran the washer and they were ok to use. They didn't reach max absorbancy until about 1-2 times after that but they did work .
