I do pod pack in the sink. Sandana in a laundry bag in the washer. Hang dry them all.

To each their own.

I don't trust the washing machine with my soft goods. I fill up the bathtub with warm water, add a bit of detergent, toss the vest/pack in and scrub the dirty areas and hang to dry.

I wipe the paint off my pod pack but hand wash with a lot of elbow grease on my sandana

Uhhhh....aren't paintball softgoods supposed to be tough? Ya know...to withstand the rigors of the sport?

So why are people so very delicate about washing them?

Regardless of how tough a product is, ALL stitched goods inherently have a limited lifespan. Some are longer than others but they will all wear out eventually. Taking proper care of them, especially when cleaning, will extend that lifespan to its fullest.

Yeah....I forgot my smiley and etc to indicate I was joking. :rolleyes:

If I were to wash my vest, I wouldn't want it banging around in my washing machine.

i dont put my pod packs in the washer .... not because i am trying to save my gear, but because i would like to keep my washer new .... my pod packs and some of my soft goods gear has metal tabs, and clips that i do not want to tear up my washer ... if anything i might do like slink and put them in a bag ...
