The best way to clean Barbie clothes, in my opinion, is to put them in a knee high stocking and tie a knot it in. They'll get clean and will be easy to find in washer or dryer.

I don't like this idea because if you have more than just a very few to wash at a time, they will get wadded up in the nylon and not have room to separate and get a good cleaning. Instead, I put them in a mesh laundry bag. For tiny items, like her tights, gloves, hats, and things like that, the nylon would be perfect, then I'd put the whole nylon in the mesh bag along with the rest of her clothes.
My daughter and later, my granddaughters always had clean clothes for their Barbies!
I agree, the mesh laundry bag would be the best for this and anything you don't want to "get lost" in the wash. I use mine regularly for my socks, making them easy to find, and since I lay them flat to dry, because they always seem to shrink in the dryer, I just grab the bag(s), dump & lay out. This also keeps pairs together so I don't have to wonder what goes with which.
Barbie clothes are actually very easy to clean. When my daughter was little and had Barbies, I put the clothes in a mesh bag like what you'd put lingerie in.
The bags keep the clothes from getting "lost" in the wash, and they get a good cleaning too. I kept them in this bag to go in the dryer too. They would run through the washer and dryer along with like colors in a load of my clothes. I did this for years and never had a problem. And Barbie always looked fresh and clean!
