    Someone on another message board shared this idea for prewashing precuts....
    Fill the sink with hot water,
    dump in the charm squares, fat Q's or strips...
    agitate a bit using a large spoon
    squeeze out as much water as you comfortably can
    place the wet fabric in a salad spinner and spin out any excess water
    press the damp fabric with a hot dry iron or air dry...
    This simulates a trip through the washer and dryer with out the fraying and hassle .
    Neato!

    Why didn't I think of that? GREAT tip. I have avoided precuts because I must prewash due to psoriasis. Now I can use all the FQ's, Strips and Jelly rolls I purchased pre psoriasis. THANKS
