Default Washing Seba Liners ?

Will putting a pair of FR1 Liners in a washing machine cancel out the 'break in' of it once put back inside the boot ?

Would washing them damage them in any way ?

Have looked in the booklet that came with them but can't find any information. Any experiences would be appreciated.

I heard somewhere putting the liners in a washing machine is not a good idea, but don't remember why exactly. I used to hand wash my High liners sort of regularly and it did not negatively affect anything, so with FR1 it won't be an issue either.

Also there are plenty of Russian videos where you can see people jumping into water in FRs and Highs :-)

Haha, I've never tried washing mine.

You get used to the smell.

I washed FR1 liners in a machine, with speed-down button depressed. Never noticed a negative effect. These were classic "custom fit" liners for FR1 of 2008 model.

I'm also curious about this, I have the balance liner from the 2011-2012 FR1 Deluxe and I have not washed it.

I did however managed to only use "anti-bacterial" (silver-treated) type socks since I bought it so even if there is a bit of smell, I might already have gotten used to it.

Thanks for the replies, sorry about the tardiness of mine, been 'offline' for a while.

I took the plunge and first washed them on a 'freshen up' wash of 15mins at 30c. The quickest option available on the machine. While they were fine, with no harm done, the low temperature of the wash didn't remove the 'odour' sufficiently.

Washed them again but on an economy coloured wash, at 40c and this did the trick, again no harm done to the liners themselves. Rather than risk any damage by using the 'spin dry' cycle I instead turned them upside down and placed them in the airing cupboard to dry out naturally.

Came back two days later, job done.

No change to the 'break in' or feel of the liners once back inside the boot, much nicer smell

I've washed my deluxe liners last week, in the machine on 30C and on 'delicate'. They came out just fine, no damage or abnormalities at all (and the stench was gone )
