I just had this problem wtih the diapers I bought for my best friend. I didn't
want to wash them because I wanted her to be able to see them when they are new and at the very softest, most beautiful they will ever be. But I wanted
to wash them because I wanted them to be useable out of the box, kwim? It was quite a dilemna for me. :LOL
I washed them, btw. And then I took the pill shaver to them. Obsessive, much?!?
