Can I boil something with snaps?

My favorite insert is a blueberry ones that'd made with MF and hemp. It's one long piece of fabric that snaps together to form a loop. I can't find any on the FSOT board (and believe me, I check multiple times a day) so I'm thinking I should just bite the bullet and buy some. The only thing is I hate prepping with the washing machine, I prefer boiling. Can I boil something with snaps, though? I don't want to burn my house down or anything.

But you could warp the plastic and then the snaps may not function.
I think the general rule of thumb is dont boil snaps/ elastic / pul.
FWIW: If I only have one or two things to prep. I will just toss them in with the towels. As slowly prep them over a few days.
