Do they even need to be washed often? I feel like I've heard that they should be washed with some regularity...
I'm not sure about washing mine because it has some rope-like piping around the edge...will that survive a wash? The pad itself didn't come with any instructions for cleaning and I'm a little scared of damaging it... Also, it's apparently some sort of foam or something inside, will that survive being washed too?
It's this one if that helps:
