We have a front loaded washer and just wash them on gentle with a slow spin cycle that is repeated again before it is over, then just hang them to dry. Usually takes 2 loads but then again, I'm a big dude with big gear. In the nearly 2 years I've been doing this the only damage has been a slight tear in the padding at the top of one shinguard where it got stuck in the door when she turned it on.

As long as I'm not playing the next day, the gear is always ready to go, and doesn't stink up the house.
Hmm, something to consider. Will have to see if my gear all fits in the washer. Thanks.
