New Mom question: Do I need to prep the pockets, or just the inserts?

I am a new mom and new to cloth diapering. I know I need to prep the diapers prior to use, but does that include the pockets themselves? or just the inserts? I have some Kawaii's, Fuzzibuns and BumGenius 4.0's and I can't imagine the fleece pockets need to be washed more than once prior to use, but I want to be sure I am doing it right. thanks.

Microfiber inserts do not require prepping- just wash everything together once and you are good to go- good luck!

Neither need prepping since they are synthetics so you can just throw them all in and wash once. The only things that need prepping are natural fibers like cotton, hemp and bamboo(not a natural fiber technically but still needs prepping).

I probably would've ended up washing everything at least three times, this post just saved me two loads of laundry!!
