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

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.

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.
