How to prep Bamboo and Hemp

I just bought a bamboo velour flat and a hemp insert. Can I prep those with my new bleached C/p/fs and my ubicp's?

The hemp insert needs to be stripped of it's oils. Since you only have the one I suggest boiling it in a pot of water with a tiny bit of dawn for 45 minutes. Dry it in your dryer and then test it to see if it still repels. If it does then do another round. I had to boil my hemp inserts twice to get them stripped.

What about the bamboo? Should I wash that separately?

I don't think that bamboo needs to be prepped at all. I would just wash it once and then use it.
