Do you use fabric softener too? And what kind of cycle do you put them on?

Yes I wash Converse, I wash at 40 degrees with fabric conditioner. I usually put a towel in the wash with them as it helps to stop the clonking noise of the shoes hitting the drum. They come out really clean. I also really loosen the laces before washing.

I just stick them in a net bag in a normal mixed 40 degree wash. I take the laces out first

yes i do all the time...however it is also a very good way of finding out which are the real ones and which are the 'genuine fakes' bought on holiday. Until washing them i really could not tell the difference ...however one trip round the machine and fakes fell apart...literally...came out with all the components intact but not actually connected to each other...it was quite funny and dd2 did attempt repair with super glu !
