My bimini boot (made by great lakes) has acumulated the bugs this year. Can I throw it in the washing machine? If so can I use detergent?

Yes, that's how I clean my boat cover (commercial machine tho, due to the size). Use Woolite, or another real mild laundry soap.

I agree with beef, use cold water and Woolite. I have had good success with this method.

You can treat it afterwards with 303's Fabric Guard to restore the water repellency...

All these answers are correct. I actually brought my entire bimini while folded up in the bimini cover to a boat cover place and had them make me a longer cover that covered the entire bimini. This longer cover goes all the way down the sides to where my first attaching screw is in my tower. So, no more bugs on any of my bimini hardware at all. Just throw the cover in the wash after a few trails.
