There is a really expensive method

A slightly cheaper option

Or you can do them by hand massaging washing up liquid into them.

I don't like the idea of completely submerging them in water as it might affect the adhesive holding the Velcro on. As I don't do it I don't know if it will but I am not going to find out.

I clean the pads as I go. Spray APC on them, agitate with a toothbrush/detailing brush then blast them out over the rinse bucket with the garden sprayer on the 'jet' setting.

^^^^ this. I tend to find that if you actually press the nozzle of the hose against the pad (reasonably gently), it seems to clean it well.

... Then spin dry on highest speed against a wall/fence until you can see no more spray. Pat dry it with a microfibre towel and you're good to go. Generally better to have a second pad so to let the first one dry more fully.

Just make sure to squeeze out what water you can before doing that. I've seen pads tear themselves apart when spun because of the weight of water in them.
