How do you wash slacklines?

To clean your Slackline just soak in warm water with a bit of soap (a not aggressive one), leaving aside for about one hour; after that, you will need to rinse it well under running water. Do not put it in the washing machine with the spinning: there’s the risk to ruin the rubber printed on the surface.
