    how often do you swap them out?

    just wash it in the machine?

    did you get a net bag with it? otherwise put it in an ordinary pillow case for washing - throw the cover in the machine too, but turn it inside out first so the velcro doesnt stick to everything. will also go in dryer...

    I attempted to wash mine but quickly realized it wouldn't fit in my washer because of the agitator in the middle of the machine. Do all you guys who wash yours have a different kind of washing machine than I do? I'll check out the ones at my new apartment, maybe they have front-loaders.

    We have a front loader that helps us wash ours.
