Recovery Gear up Keep

Well this might sound like an odd question, and i have my Flamesuit on just incase
But. . .

Do you guys normally wash your tow straps and tree savers after a muddy day out on the trail. Being a college student i plan on keeping the new gear i bought as new as possible and while i understand things will obviously get dirty, i want this stuff to last. So whats the best way to get the mud and yuck off my tree saver and such before i place them back in the bags?

Or should i just brush them off and say to hell with it ?


Some people pressure wash them and others say they don't want to damage them

I have a large plastic tub that I throw my tow straps and synthetic line into when I get home then I fill it with water and slosh things around a bit. I usually do that a few times and everything comes clean. I have pressure washed the straps before, works great.

Pressure wash.... But dont pout the nozzle to close as it can cut the strands, Hold it back just enough so the the entire width of the strap can cleaned in one pass. Flip it over, and repeat. Just be sure they are dry when you roll them back up. Trapped moisture will also damage the straps.

If it has tracks, tires or tits, its gonna cause a problem.

yup thats the way to do it. Takes all of 1 minute to do and makes things soo much easier the nexttime you go to use the straps...dusty straps and wet hands arent the best to work with
