I feel the need to wash (for the first time) my Moby wrap because DD is now drooling everywhere and I used it as a mat for her at a bookstore...and it's TRIPLE digits so....

Suggestions please? It just seems so big and I don't want it to lose its black black color.

Did you use a dryer to dry it? Or did you attempt to line dry and then fluff it? I just can't imagine trying to line dry that HUGE thing...

I have no patience, mine goes in the washer and dryer.  It gets a bit shorter but once I wear my baby a couple of times it stretches out again. Don't know about fading, though, b/c mine is turquoise.  It has kept its color well, though...

I put my brown Moby in a big mesh bag and toss it in the washer on cold and then into the dryer. I have only washed it once and it hasn't faded. I think vinegar is supposed to help stuff from fading? Also you can dry on low heat, the sun will fade it I would think so I wouldn't line dry it. Also stuff with lycra tends not to fade as much.
