Alright, I am new to cloth and I few some more questions for all of you CDing mommas! Alright, maybe a little more than a few, I am totally clueless about some things. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Can Allens Naturally detergent be used in a front loader?<br><br>
How much detergent should I use to wash my dipes?<br><br>
How many times should I was my CPFs before using them?<br><br>
How many times should I wash my BG 3.0 and Bummis covers before using them? Do I even need to wash the covers?<br><br>
Do I need to prep my microfiber inserts and doublers?<br><br>
Do I prep everything using hot water?<br><br>
Can I just pre-wash everything together in one load? Or do certain things need to be separate?

How much detergent should I use to wash my dipes<span style="color:#FF0000;">1/4-1/2 the normal amount</span>?<br><br>
How many times should I was my CPFs before using them <span style="color:#FF0000;">3-4 times worked for me</span>?<br><br>
How many times should I wash my BG 3.0 and Bummis covers before using them? Do I even need to wash the covers <span style="color:#FF0000;">i rinsed them in the sink and hung to dry and they were fine</span>?<br><br>
Do I need to prep my microfiber inserts and doublers <span style="color:#FF0000;">i did, water seemed to roll off them until maybe the 3rd or 4th wash/dry</span>?<br><br>
Do I prep everything using hot water <span style="color:#FF0000;">i would, pfs have some oil in them that needs to come out and hot works best i think</span>?<br><br>
Can I just pre-wash everything together in one load? Or do certain things need to be separate?<span style="color:#FF0000;">i always did everything together and never had any problems</span></div>

Depends on how old your baby is. If it's for your DD than around 4. You could probably use them after 2-3 washes, but they won't be fully absorbant yet and you'll have to keep an eye on how wet she's getting. (If she's a super soaker than just wash them first!)<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I don't wash either first honestly. I'm not really a prewasher. They don't work as well til you wash them though.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Yup, it washes better and will help remove natural oils from things like hemp and cotton.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
