TrainersDon't wash Trainers in your washing machine

By following the advice below, you can prolong the life of your machine


ExclamationTrainers are too heavy you risk damaging your machine by detaching the plastic drum paddles

Drum paddlesWashing your trainers in a washing machine would seem like a quick and easy way to clean them; some machines even have a special wash programme for Shoes.

Trainers are too heavy whilst being tossed around the tumbling drum they can drop down onto the plastic drum paddles and completely detach one, or all three of the paddles.

If you use your machine without drum paddles, you’ll snag and tear your clothes on the sharp edges of the holes in the steel drum left behind by the detached paddles.


Our advice, never wash your trainers in the washing machine   we would advice you to always wash them by hand in the sink or in bowl and let them dry outside in the sun.
