Cleaning seat covers

My TJ came with a set of custom-fit seat covers from the dealership when the vehicle was new. I didn't believe the guy I bought it from that they were on since new and when I removed them, sure as shit there were new seats under them. I was very surprised.

My question is.. how in the world do you wash these? They're smooth on the body contact points and thick denim on the sides and back. Crappy pic for reference

I would throw them in the washer on the light cycle, then hang them dry.

Did this.. came out great except i had it on medium load and part of the covers never submerged.. so there's still dirt on them. I'll just scrub the denim part in the tub then. Thanks for the reply. My girlfriend said the same thing

My OEM seat covers (only in the back seat) got wet (I presume that the water that condensed on the hard-top dripped on the back seat) and developed mold (or wahtever it's called - the fungus, you know...). Can I take them off and wash them. If yes, how sould I do it?
Can I take, also, the front covers off and wash them?
If I wash them in the washing machine, wouldn't they shrink and not fit (I presume they are cotton)?

I am talking about the seat fabric (not seat covers that come over the original seat fabric).
Sorry for a lot of questions but I am really concerned about that.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
