Sure. If you're talking about Ouch Pouches, you can actually toss them right into the washing machine, but they'll last longer if you handwash them in warm water using a standard dish detergent.

You can certainly wash ouch puches! I prefer to handwash mine, but you can just throw them in your washer.


Also, to me it seems that they feel thicker after washing them, so if you like thicker ochies, wash them more often, or vice-versa for thinner ones.:)

Handwashing them works really well, but I suggest not putting it off too long. If you wait a while they get quite nasty and are never truly CLEAN ever again.!!!
