    hi,

    Anyone know the best way to clean a Omega NATO strap? Especially the rio since it's white blue? Any info would be helpful.

    thanks.

    Not for the Omega-branded NATO, but for all my other NATOs i just put them in a laundry delicates bag, and wash them in a normal wash cycle.

    ^^^^^ This! Should work for all NATO style bands, including the Omega branded bands. After washing, let the band air dry.

    Sorry, by "not for the Omega NATO" I meant because I do not have an Omega NATO, but agree, it will work for all as they are just nylon straps.

    A fine to medium toothbrush also works with mild detergent.

    yep, I toss both mine in the washing machine when they get really grimy. If I just want to knock the dust off or got some hot sauce or something on my strap, I will put some laundry detergent in a glass with some hot water and stichk the strap in there. Let it soak for a while and use a toothbrush as TwentiethCenturyFox mentioned, then rinse well. With both options I let the strap air dry. They come out looking like new each time.

    Don't throw it in the washer if it has metal keepers, unless you like scratches and annoying sounds coming from the washing machine for an hour.

    That's why you should put the strap in a delicates bag before putting it in the washer. No harm to the metal bits and no annoying sounds
