Cleaning wax applicators

I've got a few of the typical yellow wax applicator pads. How do you clean them? I threw one in with a couple of microfibres in the washing machine today and it's clean but dyed by the wax and towels so is now purple! Are people cleaning them for reuse or throwing them away?

If it's worth keeping, wash after each use. I typically rinse them in hot water from the tap and then leave to soak in hot water and fairy liquid. Before it cools to much keep working and rinsing till you think it's clean.

If it's the cheap yellow one I just use them on tyres and in them when finished.
If it's the nice plush one with soft edges I wash them by hand with liquid
