I think the best way to clean a floaty suit is to put it on get in the shower (luke warm)and use some soap and just clean it.
I would not put it in the washer as the foam will get out of shape and naff the suit up.

i cleaned my with warm water and washing powder and a good scrubing brush . it got rid of all the conger slim. but i let it gat damp and its got lots of little mold spots on it which hard as i try i cant get rid of. i was told never to Machine wash as it bu**ers up the foam and can ruin the waterproof seams.
