My fucking kitten pissed on my Ernie Ball guitar straps. Now they fucking reek.

Is it worth me washing them? If so, how should I go about this?

Indeed, and use Woolite or similar detergent intended for delicates. Air dry. Might want to spray a disinfectant beforehand as well.

I'd throw them in a synthetics cycle at 30 degrees then air dry

Optional Lenor for lovely fragrance.
