Don't wash Trainers in your washing machine

You’ll seriously damage your washing machine

Trainers are too heavy Washing 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. Washing trainers in a washing machine can sometimes break the door glass. Your laundry will be stuck at the bottom of the drum Drum paddles, or lifters, are a necessary part of a front loading washing machine; they lift and turn the laundry in the machine to enable the water and detergent to past through the weave of the fabric to remove the dirt. If you try using your machine without drum paddles; your laundry will be stuck at the bottom of the drum, because the paddles won't be there to lift and move the laundry around in the tumbling drum. Also, you will snag and tear your laundry on the sharp edges of the holes in the steel drum left behind by the detached paddles. The risk of breaking the door glass Washing trainers in a washing machine can sometimes break the door glass; which could be very expensive to repair because quite often you can’t buy a replacement door glass separately, you’ll have to replace the entire door. Our Advice: Never wash your trainers in your washing machine – we would advice you to always wash them by hand in the sink or in a bowl and let them dry outside in the sun.
