Washing new nappies

My reuseables are here and on the packaging it says to wash 3-5 times before use.

My question is....
Is it five times washed in the machine. Or

Wash once and dry, wash again and dry for 3-5 times? shock

And do I need to put any washing stuff in or just wash with water please!!

Thank you

You don't have to dry in between washes and you can add other washing to it. You're basically trying to get rid of the natural oils in the fibres, so I'm sure a smidge of washing powder won't go amiss. However I also read about another poster here just putting them in the bath and soaking them for 24 hours which might be easier and use less water!
