It's perfectly fine - that's what pretty much everyone does. You should use unscented detergent, though, otherwise the smell could bother your hedgehog. Just make sure you pick off any pieces of poop and shake it out before it goes in the washing machine. Same goes for any quills on the liner. Quills are the only thing that might end up in your clothes, though usually that's only if you wash them in the same load. I suggest making 3-4 liners so you can save them up to do a small hedgehog-only load of laundry every week or so, so you don't have to run the washing machine for only one liner.
