Re: Help me diagnose my stiff prefold cause
Since you use the dryer, it sounds like detergent build up to me too. Do a couple of warm or hot washes without ANY detergent and see if they start to improve.
You don't need nearly as much detergent as you think to get them clean. We use soap nut powder instead now and everything is always fresh and clean. I used to get ammonia issues (on all cotton diapers) until we switched.
