Emily got her sportsband soaked yesterday when she washed her hands. When I took it off to dry her arm, it had a funky smell to it.

How do you clean the sportsband? Is it safe to throw it in the washing machine?

Good question! Never thought of the washing machine...we just soak it in sudsy water and let it air dry. But LIly likes to just play in sudsy water so washing her bracelet is her excuse to do that.
