care for a hand wash only sheet?

I bought this 1200D ripstop poly plaid sheet and the care instructions are hand wash only. I do not have a washtub sink for it and it reaks! Could I wash it on gentile cycle and air dry? Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question but its been sitting outside on my fence for awhile as I don't know what to do! Thanks!

Yes, wash it on gentle cycle and hang it out to dry.

Take it to the car wash on "rinse". They have the clips for mats. Let it drip as long as you can get away with it. I've done them in the tub and used the toilet plunger (one kept for this purpose) to act as an adjitator.

The car wash works. I normally either stuff mine in the bathtub and swish them around or take them outside, hang them on the fence and wash them with the hose and soap.
