You are a braver person than I. Personally I would not want to inhale particles of rust from inside the hose. That could make you sick. I washed non-washable hoses in the past and that was the end of those hoses.
My recommendation would be not to wash a non-washable hose with water or any other liquid but then again who am I to stop you.
