How to fluff up my MF??

Hi everyone! So I just bought some Best Bottom stay dry inserts on FSOT (yay!) and they are sooo soft and fluffy!! In comparison mine are flat and a little scratchy/rough. These new ones are so thick.

Question is: Do you think they are thick and fluffy because of wash routine or maybe they are just newer than mine? I don't use bleach very much, maybe once a month at most. I also throw some Dawn in once a month or so. I never have problems with stink or anything. I pre-rinse with vinegar then use tide free and gentle powder, hot wash and cold rinse. My dipes get very clean but my MF persists in being flat. Oh and I dry on Hot.

Any suggestions?? I have tried other detergents in the past (been CD'ing for 20 months) and none have worked as well as Tide has.

I have newer Flip stay dry inserts and Flip inserts that have seen better days.. Honestly, I think it's just their age. I have the same wash routine as you except I use Tide F&G liquid. I never tried to fluff up the older inserts because I just assumed that's why they were the way they were - because they were older.
Maybe someone else has a different approach besides "that's just how it is"?

I'm curious if age is the problem too? I'd love to here from someone it isn't, they are so much nicer when they are soft and fluffy.
