Cleaning / Washing Sails - Washing Machine ? Bleach ?

I just set up a spinnaker for my 25 foot trailer yacht. It has a lot of dirt and mold on it. Is there any reason why I cant throw it into the washing machine?

My nice new main has some rust spots on it. How do I remove them?

Also my friends 36 foot spray has a really crappy looking main. All sorts of crap on there like, algae, bird crap, rust, mud and general garbage. How would we clean such a larch sail? Bathtub with bleach or some other chemical?
