Just want to check and see what is the best way to clean an Umlindi and Recon belt?

Thanks

The easiest way is to throw it into a normal washing machine. I scrub ( using a toothbrush) really dirty spots with Dawn dish soap and wash the nylon items in TechWash. You can use other detergents just keep in mind that most contain optical brighteners which can enhance your IR signature if that is something that is important to you.

When it is finished just hang it up and let it air dry.

When I've thrown backpacks and similar gear in the washing machine, I've found it useful to put them in a mesh laundry bag. It keeps the straps from getting all wound up around the agitator and such.

Great suggestion Wose. I also should have mentioned to be sure to close/cover any hook Velcro mating surfaces to avoid pilling the wrong fabrics.
