How to prep BG Bamboo Fitted?

Can I boiled them in a pot? Will it ruin the velcro? If I have to wash it in the washer and dryer, how many times should I do it untill it's all ready? I'm thinking of prep them together with my hemp & bamboo inserts too... It's that ok?
TIA

I'm not sure if you should follow my advice.... but I just tossed mine in with a load of towels, and then jumped right into using them. After that and about 3 or 4 washes later, they were completely soft and fluffy and wonderful.

I just washed them a few times, used them after 2-3 washings and kept using them. I've washed them about 20 times/used them - not a huge fan - but they are soft & fluffy still. I don't see a need to boil.

Re: How to prep BG Bamboo Fitted?

When I first bought mine, I called the Cottonbabies CS and they told me they needed to be washed on hot 5 times before use for maximum absorbency. (but no one really knew for sure. The lady I talked to was discussing with a coworker, they put me on hold and came back later and said to wash them about 5x)

I wouldn't boil them because I would be afraid of the elastic breaking down.

I've always just washed them once on hot and dried.

I just washed mine on hot and then dried in the dryer 3 or 4 times. Seemed to work okay, though I do think got more absorbant after a few more washes

Re: How to prep BG Bamboo Fitted?

I just got mine today in the mail! I did read to wash them separate than other fibers because the oil will leech out of them and you don't want it on your synthetic diapers. I am washing them with towels.
