    Hi mate, i have washed mine twice in the machine on cool wash with regular washing powder, then i have just hung it for a couple of days to drip dry. There's no problems with threads or inner lining comin undone etc. Just make sure its cool wash.

    I also have washed mine about 10 times. Mark is correct in saying to wash in cold water but I would also suggest using the delicate cycle with a mild detergent, such as baby detergent.

    did you guys turn them inside out or just leave them right side out? Also could I dry it in the dryer on the no heat spin?

    Never washed a rubies Vader before but I use the dryel system on my costumes. Just throw the costume in the dryel bag with one of the cleaning sheets and throw it in the dryer. All my costumes come out smelling nice and fresh everytime. I got mine at Target. Hope this helps.

    I leave it right side out, i have not attempted drying it, it only does take a couple of days to drip dry, no risk of shrinkage either.

    Yes, do NOT put it in the dryer. I'd would imagine the dryer would probably melt it.
