I see a lot of costumes that incorporate foam sewn into pieces of clothing to simulate armour or muscle padding and IMO the effect looks really cool (the only example I can think of right now is Robin's suit in the Arkham City game, but I wanted to do something similar with a red compression shirt I bought and some pectoral/abdominal pieces made from thin craft foam sheets). However, I also see a lot of sites that do not recommend washing craft foam because of how difficult it is to dry. So when sewing foam into your costumes, how do you keep them clean?

Kind regards,
