Absolutely DO NOT put in the washing machine with soap. Do not use soap, if you do, you will strip off the duckback oil, then it's no longer waterproof. You rinse it off with cold water & use a bristle brush on the muddy spots. Hang it in an airy spot, not near heat. I have a long black Koolah oilskin, had foal goo on it, mud, horse scurf, you name it, always came clean(ish) with just cold water. Being it's over 20 yrs old now, it's shiny from wear but still waterproof.
