We have new unbleached prefolds (IPFs, I think) that are repelling like ducks. I washed them once and they looked so nice and fluffy -- do they need to be washed again or many times? I compared them to the diaper service prefolds we still use (held both under the faucet) and the unbleached really shed water like a duck.

They need to be washed several times in very hot water to get the wax off. You can boil them too, but I wouldn't know how long because I always just wash around 5 times.

Yep, you need to wash and dry them <span style="text-decoration:underline;">at least</span> 3 or 4 more times before they will absorb well.
