I just wash them on regular cycle with cold water and then air dry. The ONE time I used hot water it shrunk :/

u r not suppose to wash them..because they have flame resistant stuff on them. just use a butt wipe and wipe it down.

Read your manual.

Some need to be hand washed, some are fine on a gentle cycle. No fabric softeners and don't put it in the dryer.

Oh, and never wash the straps, other than with a damp cloth.

 Gentle and hang dry. I have had them rip otherwise.

This is exactly correct!! :)

Quoting Randi02:

Either hand wash or gentle cycle, no fabric softener, no dryer, as little soap as possible.  

Even better is just to wipe it down with a damp cloth and set it in the sun to dry and eliminate odors.  

Be sure not to wash the straps, they can only be surface wiped.
