Quick PF Prepping Question

Postby VTHokie_Mama » Wed Jun 17, 2009 11:43 am

I just washed my batch of UB PF's from LL after boiling them... Should I use detergent in the rest of the washes? I plan on washing/drying them 3-4 times before use.

They still smell a little "earthy" so I'll probably use detergent in the 2nd wash, too.

I use it in all the washes, but less than I would a normal load--probably about 1/2.

I would do at least the first four, and use dishsoap -- strips the crappies out much faster!
