How to prep diapers with no prep recommendations?

I just received my very first cloth diapers (cheaper ones from ebay just to get started) and they didn't come with any prepping or washing recommendations. They are PUL pocket diapers with terry MF inserts. Can anyone recommend a good method for prepping and later washing these please?

ETA: Pocket material is 100% polyester

Re: How to prep diapers with no prep recommendations?

  • You just need to wash them once in hot water with detergent since they are made with synthetic fibers.

    If they were natural fibers you would need to wash them multiple times and dry them to get the natural oils out. You have to prep these seperately also.

    This is my dirty diaper wash routine: Cold rinse, hot wash with detergent, cold rinse, extra cold rinse. I hang everything with PUL and/or elastic outside or on a drying rack with fan. All inserts and prefolds go into the dryer.

    HTH!

  • PUL and MF just need to be washed once. Natural fibers (hemp, bamboo) and prefolds are the only things that need prepping.
