If they're really soiled and full of paint shell, hose them down first. Your washing machine will thank you.

Wash all your paintball clothes in the washing machine. Including pads, pod pack, headband, whatever. Use COLD water and a liberal ammount of soap (use just as much as you would for a large load of regular clothes). If you have a custom jersey, turn it inside out to help protect the graphics. Wash it on DELICATE. When it's done, hang dry it all.

i throw all my gear (including cleats) into the washing machine. i make sure i use the LARGEST setting so everything is submerged in water. use the gentle wash cycle.

i make sure all the velcro is secured. i also use the extra rinse feature to get all the stains out, etc.

Use Oxy-clean packets along with the soap. I put everything into the washing machine. Oxy-clean works best to get the paint, dirt and smell out of everything.

Exactly what these guys said. Machine wash cold, hang to dry, turn jersey's inside out, and use plenty of soap and Oxy-Clean if needed, or wanted.

This. Though clothing should say what to do on the tag, but everything I have says machine was cold, air dry. My jersey says I can tumble dry it on a delicate setting, but since everything else is going to be air dried I do the same with the jersey.
