    IF you are talking about a gig bag, I wouldn't wash it in the washer. IT is foam rubber, it'll soak up the water and probably never dry. You'll funk up your bass with mildew and all sorts of stuff. I certainly wouldn't put it in the dryer. It is foam rubber, it will MELT!!!!

    Just wipe it off with a wet cloth.

    I've been using a gig bag, around town and on the road for years and haven't even gotten a ding on any of my basses. Buy a good gig bag and you can't go wrong.
  7. I've noticed that basses with gold hardware have the gold rub off the top of volume/tone knobs and the ends of the tuners when kept in a gig bag.

    Saw a beautiful FNA with "gig bag rash."
