Interesting idea.  Anybody ever try this?

    Been doing it for years! However best advice would be not to use a dishwasher as the temperatures involved are excessive. A normal washing machine on a 30C or 40C setting produces good results without melting the glues used in the manufacture of the sneakers.

    I normally put mine in a pillow case and tied tight and then washing machine

  • The trick is NOT putting them in the dryer! Same goes for ballcaps.

    I usually stuff them with paper towels while they dry.

    Never tried it in the dishwasher.

    I put mine in the dryer all the time. Never had a problem. Just tie them both together and hang them from the door by letting the string hang out the door when you shut it.

    Newer dryers even have a removable shelf that attaches to the door. The shoes won’t bounce around at all, they sit nice and quiet in the middle.

    I put almost everything in the dishwasher. Small garbage cans to clean, kids toys that are all gummed up, light fixtures, face-plates, vent covers…you name it. If it can be washed by that machine, it goes in there. Dishes separate of course.

    i know crocs brand actually recommends that you wash their shoes that way although i have no dishwasher (plus i wear mine to the dog park so i don’t think i would want them in there). i heard someone else talking about washing shoes in the dishwasher but i always do mine in the washer (and that’s frequently with the mud races i do) but never use the dryer-just stick them out on the patio in the sun!

    Never tried it with shoes, but I use the top rack of the dishwasher for washing baseball caps. No shrinkage, and the cap keeps its shape.

    works great for sneakers, ball caps and dog collars
    do not use the heater setting to dry them

    Also great for cleaning Black Powder revolvers, don’t forget to remove the stocks. Use Heat Dry and oil after removal. no work at all.
