Omamori's (amongst other things you purchase from shrines/temples) are always meant to be brought to a shrine/temple at the beginning of the following year to be burnt, and it is widely practiced in Japan.

Washing an omamori is unheard of as it usually contains 'holy' pieces of paper/wood/cloth that has been prayed upon.
