Imagine bamboo flats

I just got mine and they don't feel soft I'm new to flats so I could be off and they are actually very soft. Do they get softer as they wash?

I was skeptical at first too because they weren't as soft as everyone raved. I just kept using them & washing them & they have gotten softer. I also had a little vinegar rinse in @ the end

That's good to hear! Right now I'm like "man those are rough"

Re: Imagine bamboo flats

Flats and Prefolds are pretty rough before they are prepped. I would wash and dry them a few times, they will be super soft! I can feel mine out with my eyes closed in a pile of cotton flats

Re: Imagine bamboo flats

Good to know. After a couple if prep washes I'm not impressed. I really hope they get softer with more washes

I have absolutely no idea how to fold, and I kind of don't want to know- I'm afraid it will take up more time. So, When I pad fold I just fold it down to the size of the cover, absolutely nothing special. When I snappi- I fold into a square about the size of a prefold and do it as normal.

Also they get super squishy once washed, even after the first time you will see a huge difference.

Mine were so hard when they were new. They are softer than our cotton osocozys now. I can feel a difference in hand. They are more squishy
