Washing your NATO watch strap
When it comes to keeping your NATO strap clean, you can either hand wash it, or pop it in your washing machine.
Option 1 - Hand washing
- Fill up a bucket or your sink with some warm soapy water
- Lightly scrub your strap using a dish washing cloth
- Air dry - do not iron or put in the dryer as they will shrink/warp if they get too hot!
Option 2 - Machine wash
- Put the strap in to a pillowcase or delicates washing bag (this is important as it prevents the metal buckles hitting the sides of your machine, and will stop the strap being tangled on your spindle)
- Machine wash on 'warm'
- Air dry (no dryer!)
