Cleaning socks

How do you guys clean your filter socks? I read that hydrogen peroxide is a good way.

I just turn it inside out and blast it with a hose until clean.
takes about 3-5 minutes.

I do one cycle in the washing machine with bleach only and no soap in hot water followed by a wash with o soap or bleach in warm water. If I'm putting them right back in and they smell like a swimming pool, I also add some chlorine remover to neutralize the chlorine.

Washing machine with bleach only , no soap and air dry ,... Been doing it weekly for years ,as stated above the bleach residue if any is neutralized as it dries. Never a problem .
