    Thats what i do. Then sun dry. Helps get rid of smell. You cam soak in a little bit of vinegar to kill bacteria. Some ppl put baking soda.

    All the time, air dry.

    You nailed it: the most efficient way to wash knee pad in washing machine is to put them in the washing machine.

    I throw in all my pads. Ideally get the GF's pads in and set it to small load on the heavy duty setting. Dry them in the dryer on low for a short period of time.

    I've been using the same pads for years with no stink or degradation issues.
    Safe riding,

    I usually soak in vinegar and water rather than wash with it

    Washing machine with some oxiclean or borax, then into the dryer on low heat. Oxiclean and borax kill odors. Either works for dunking helmets, cycling shoes, etc. too.
    Do the math.

    Make sure you use a front loader on delicate.

    Yep, I throw mine in there too. Air dry. No problems yet. I wash mine every few rides, or when they start to get really stinky.

    It also helps to rinse them thoroughly with water after every ride. That should extend the time between washings, and potentially extend the life of the pads.

    I mentioned "dunking" helmets and shoes as opposed to putting them in the washing machine. i.e. put some warm water in a bucket, add some oxiclean or borax, push the items in and swish around a bit, then rinse well.
    Do the math.
