I always use the wife to clean them.
She cost me a lot more than the washing thingy box that I can't work ( I can't even open the bloody door... rammed computers. )

I wash mine by hand in warm soapy water and then spin dry them on the DA and leave them to air dry and they are like new again.

Random query; what would you do if you spotted some mould inside the pads? Left in a damp spot for way too long.

Bin it get a new one.
There is a possibility of it exploding leaving a nasty clean up job of foam shrapnel.
Believe me when a pad let's go it lets go big time in style

I tried to bleach the hell out of one today to see and it turned from porclain white to vomit yellow...... Not looking good. Will wash, dry and run it for laughs and report back.

i usually just use a small amount of washing up liquid and wash them in the sink, using my thumbs to work out the polish which has built up. Then leave to air dry!
