Pod squeegies never work. At least, never for me!

I throw EVERYTHING in the dishwasher - barrels, pods, mask (without lense) pads, squeegies, you name it, I've put it through the dishwasher. Just turn it to air dry (turn the heat off) and you're golden,

you put your mask in the dishwasher doesn't it hurt the foam

also do you use soap to wash all this stuff

Never hurt the foam in my Profilers, and I've done it after every tournament and when my stuff gets REALLY dirty - probably about 10 times. Yes, I used dishwashing detergent with it. I've had my profilers over 2 years now, and they're just fine.

As always, the disclaimer is "Use at your own risk!" but it never did any damage to mine.

I dont wash my gear, it is bad luck.

Tank cover, mask (other than lense),packs and the such do not see washing until the season is over

Guns, pants and jersey see cleaning after every day of play.

What always worked for me is just hot water. Just put a little water in the pod and close the lid and shake it.

When I wash my Pods, I just rinse em out with the hose real good, and let em Air Dry.

fill up a tub with some lukewarm water and soap, clean it, and let it air dry
