I've had success with the warm water on a tub method.
I used some very mild laudry soap and scrubbed it with my hands. Washed the soap off with cold water and left it in the sun to dry a good while.
Washing machine on gentle cycle should be ok as long as it's cold water so you don't risk shrinkage. And always hang to dry. I'll try this next.
