You must better clean the pad by hand, water and liquid soap.

As above I normally wash my pads by hand. I believe the washing machine can affect the Velcro due to the heat hence hand wash however if you can still see grit then I wouldn't use the pad so you've nothing really to lose by trying a machine wash.

For the sake of the cost of a new pad if it was me I would just bin the pad and get a new one rather than take the chance.

Normally i would bin it, but the Dooka pads are 17£ each, so i'd r use it a few more times.
I left it to soak in water and have kinda combed it over, can't see or feel anything on it now..

There's no velcro on the pads as far as i'm aware? But i see what you mean about heat and that.

Oh its a wash pad, i thought it was a machine pad...

Just stick the pad in the washing machine on a 20deg wash with non bio and give it a brush after, should be fine
