Just wash them. They're cotton so they will look ugly after a couple uses. Doesn't affect them. Keep pads moist or damp by putting them in a trash bag or tote after use. Dont allow them to dry while dirty.
I wash cotton on hot and use oxi clean, wash soda or similar whatevers around. Then set machine for extra rinse. Absolutely do not ever use fabric softener liquid or sheets ever on bonnets.

Everything Keep it Clean said !!!

Hot water and Oxi Clean is very important. I use Bonnet Pros Bonnet Wash with Oxi Clean.Let them air dry. Don't put them in dryer.

Ive tried to wash them everyway possible but you cant get them back to new.

I keep a bucket of hot water and oxi clean on hand, when I take a bonnet off the machine it gets dunked in the bucket, wrung out and into my dirt bonnet bucket. This does a lot to keep soils from setting and staining. They still won't be perfectly white but will stay fairly light.

I love the way superzorbs clean with my orbots, but they don't hold up at all. I have spent over $1000 on them, and they start to fall apart within 2-3 washes. At $22ish a piece it gets expensive fast. Anyone else have this issue? I have emailed and called Orbot, but they can't really give me a good answer. I just ordered 10 more and going to try them with the new orbot pad drive to see if that makes a difference.
