Brush off excess hair from the pad. This will also help loosen the sweat and dirt.
Spray a good quality stain or spot remover to heavily marked and soiled areas. Leave to soak as per instructions on the bottle before placing in machine.
Pop into the machine with a stain removing powder. You can use one designed for whites on your white pads (make sure you choose a colour safe option for coloured pads!)
Add some washing liquid like wool wash or MELP.
NOTE: Help protect the integrity of the sheepskin and take it easy on the detergents and don't overdo it.
Choose a WOOL or GENTLE cycle on your machine.
The pad will come out wetter than on a normal cycle. Ensure you hang over a clothes horse or flat, out of direct sun, to drip dry.
Voila! Clean pad ready for your next competition.
