I have bought my battle rope for two years, a common 38mm diameter black one and should be made by artificial fiber. It is placed on ground for 2 years.
Recently I carry it out on my shoulder, walk to the large balcony at my apartment and use it. When carrying it, I found it smells bad. Maybe because it is close to dust on ground for two years.
How do one clean a battle rope? Definitely not by washing machine. Is it hard to dry by it's size larger than normal ropes? Maybe I have to put it under sunlight for days? How does soaking it affect rope like maybe softening it?Is there anyone to share cleaning experience? Thank you!
