Washing combat vest?

#1
Hi folks

Have picked up a used vest for my lad but i'm not sure on the correct way of cleaning it.(smells like sh*t or mouldy)

Will it be safe to just chuck in the washing machine or do i need to clean it in a special manner?

I have tried searching but couldn't find any previous posts on this matter so your advice would be much appreciated.

Get it in the washer, no worries, I deliberately wash my pouches to fade them.

Use Nikwax tech wash. It'll keep the colour, loose the smell and, perhaps less importantly, will keep all IRR properties.

Shove it the machine, just don't boil wash it.

I wouldn't bother using any detergent if I were you.
