Normally, I just brush off the inside with a stiff brush and periodically take the straps off and wash them as needed.
At the end of every winter (when it is time to put the blanket away for the year) I'll put it in my bathtub, wash it by hand and then hang it out to dry on the fence outside.
You can also take them to the laundry mat and put them in the industrial size washers - just be careful because it can ruin the waterproofing if you use the wrong soap.
