Got my fabric to make inserts...now what

Ok, so I ordered some fabric to make my own inserts. I got a bamboo/hemp fabric...which turned out to be jersey type of fabric and I didn't really pay attention to that, oh well. I also got some bamboo fleece.

I put them in the washer and have just done one cycle so far. How many should I do? 4 more? Do they all have to be with soap or can I just do wash cycles with no soap? Or maybe just 1 more load with soap?

As far as the inserts go, I think I am going to do 2 layers bamboo/hemp, 1 or 2 layers of fleece, and then 2 more layers of the bamboo/hemp. I might just do one insert like that and see how it works. The bamboo/hemp is really thin because it is a jersey fabric. I have read that it is still good to use, you just have to do more layers.

Any advice and recommendations are welcome

Any help with prepping the fabric? I've done 1 regular wash with soap and 1 quick cycle with no soap so far. I just want to know if I need to do more cycles with soap or is no soap ok.

I usually do two washes with soap. Seems to work fine for me
