Just regular detergent and whatever recommended washing settings that the fleece maker has recommended.

Just use detergent like the others said, preferably the liquid kind that has no added scent or stuff like that. If you use fabric softener or softener sheets your fleece will no longer work because it will lose its absorbing power. I've never used it personally but I heard vinegar works well to remove stink from the fleece. And of course wash with hot water.

Scent free, dye free detergent with some vinegar; no fabric softener. No dryer sheets.
