We recommend that you wash the pad as often as the control unit. The mattress protectors are machine washable in a front-loading washing machine. To wash the OOLER hydronic pad, use a front-loading washing machine (one without a shaker). Hold the tubes of the pad with a thick rubber, string, etc.
Wash them with cold water on a delicate cycle. To dry the pad, keep the pad tubes secured and dry on a delicate cycle without heat. Do not bleach, iron or dry clean the pad. Make sure the pad is completely dry before reconnecting it to a power source.
Chilipad mattress pads can be machine washed in a front loading washing machine. To clean a Chilipad, first remove the cap and wash it with soap and water. Then use a damp cloth to clean the pad. If the pad is still dirty, you can use a mild detergent to clean it.
Finally, allow the pad to air dry before putting the cover back on. The pad can be washed in a household washing machine, preferably a front-loading model or one without a shaker. ChiliSleep recommends using an elastic band to tie the tubes and wash the mattress protector in cold water on a gentle cycle. The mattress can be tumble dried on the delicate cycle without heat.
It should never be bleached, ironed or dry-cleaned. Do not reconnect the tube to a power source until you are sure it is completely dry.
