    Can you wash (mild soap, gentle rub with sponge) neoair sleeping mat surface?

    Or what's the best way to clean it (degrease it)?

    Cheers

    I've just used warm water with liquid washing soap in the past.
    According to Thermarest "For general cleaning, a quick scrubbing with Formula 409®, BioClean™ All-Purpose Cleaner, or other general household cleaner is best."

    Sponge it with weak Fairy Liquid solution, but only where/when I can see it needs it, and rinse thoroughly afterwards.

    I've not had any issues cleaning pads in the bath with weak dr bronners and rinsing in the shower. Valve closed of course.

    No - I do it flat, with the valve shut. I'm only sponging it down.

    Same as Dovidola, easier to get into the bumps.
