What are Bleached Diapers?
Bleached prefold diapers are white because the cotton yarns were bleached prior to weaving. Cotton is a creamy or pale brown color by nature. The bleaching procedure eliminates the natural cotton oils from the fibers as well as turning them white. The tenacity of the fibers is lowered as a result, and the woven cloth is significantly less resilient as a result.
Additional contaminants may be discharged into the environment as a result of the bleaching process through airborne and waterborne emissions. This impact has been decreased, but not eradicated, thanks to recent advancements in bleaching technology.
How to use Unbleached Cloth Diapers ?
Before unbleached prefold cloth diapers become wet, they must be laundered at least 2-3 times after receiving them.
We recommend washing the diapers in hot, warm soapy water and drying them on high heat as many times as necessary to make the diapers absorbent. Make a pocket in the diaper and pour the mixture 1/2 cup of liquid into it to see how absorbent it is.
Continue to wash if the water accumulates and does not soak in immediately. You may need to wash these up to 5 times before they become totally absorbent, depending on the detergent you use, the hardness of your water, and the natural variances in cotton materials.
Cloth softener should never be used since it coats the fabric and causes it to repel moisture. Unbleached cloth diapers are quite popular and, by most accounts, well worth the extra effort required to break them in.

Prepping Unbleached Prefold Diapers
Boiling them removes all essential oils and wax, resulting in a much softer, supple, and permeable diaper for your kid. They will get more absorbent the more you launder them. Begin by boiling two large pots of water on the stove, then dipping three diapers into each and boiling for 15 minutes. They constantly bubble up, making it impossible to leave them alone and forcing them back into the boiling water.
After that, put the diapers to the tub with the boiling hot water and little detergent. (ALL Free and Clear) Use 1/4 of the amount of detergent you would typically use for a load; this is not to build up a layer of detergent on your diapers; this will create a barrier, preventing your diapers from absorbing. Allow the water to cool down before beginning to wash.
Shake, scrape, and toss a few times each before rinsing. This is when the work came in, rinsing and twisting and rinsing and twisting. “Insert thoughts of oh so convenient disposable diapers here” Before hanging out your diapers to dry, make sure all the soap is out.
