Re: Poll: Do you wash your aikido belt?
When I owned one, years ago, I don't remember if I washed it or not. I might have just because it was so stiff I could hardly get it around my waist... but I also might not have because it never got too dirty.
I do remember being taught the tradition of not letting your belt touch the floor -- not during workout, since you're training, obviously common sense is a factor here -- as a sign of respect to the art. *shrug*
