How should I wash my mesh jacket

I searched and didnt find anything. I really dont think the washing machine would take too kindly to the jacket. Is there something specific that I can buy or do I just take a wet rag and soap to it? Or should I let it soak in a sink for a while?

If the tag says it's washable, put it in one of those mesh bags. O, and put a little extra detergent on any stains the jacket has. It helps to clean the jacket, but some stains you may not be able to get out.

i usually take the armor out, throw it in the bathtub with some detergent, turnt he water on and soak it for a while, then kind of hand scrub it some, rinse then hang dry. i do this about every 4 weeks and so far so good, it gets the bugs and sweat out at least.

Use cold water and Woolite. Its the heat not the water or detergent that causes most damage.

Just be careful if you have any leather parts.
My Joe Rocket Reactor jacket, after being caught on the rain, now shows a pink strip where it used to be white. Thanks to the red leather on shoulders and top of sleeves
