How to prep hemp inserts?

So, I got 6 joey bunz hemp inserts yesterday that I need to prep. I was wondering if I could prep these the same way I do unbleached prefolds? Boiling water and a little Dawn....20 minutes or so. Then wash on hot before drying? Anyone tried this with hemp?

I usually boil it (never heard of adding Dawn but a great idea), or for large amounts Hot wash with soap, hot wash without soap, Dry, Hot wash with soap then dry. It will get more absorbant after more washes. Good Luck mama!

You can definitely boil them. If I have only 1 or 2 things of hemp to prep, I actually just throw them in with regular laundry. When I feel the oils are out, I wash a couple of times with the diapers.
