I'd be nervous about steam on metal...I would probably suggest soaking, squeezing out gently but thoroughly, and then laying flat. If it's OK to hand wash, then that shouldn't cause a problem. I usually use my ironing board when I lay it out, since I can stick pins in the cover pad, and there are vent holes in the bottom of the metal board.
