Textiles, I wash. Usually by hand in my deep kitchen sink. Take all the armor out, of course. Separate any liners.
I occasionally wash them on the gentle cycle in the machine, every 2-3 years.
The armor I'd only hand wash and air dry. Same thing with helmet liners. Shampoo works really well for that.
Leather, I use a damp cloth and wipe off. Stubborn dirt, a wet paper towel and a few drops of dish soap will be my first attempt. The least aggressive cleaner that will do the job.
