both DC have come back from camp with wet, muddy, smelly trainers. I want to wash them in my machine. Are theer any rules to follow - should they be in on their own, or in with a wash, or in a bag? I don't want to ruin my washer for the sake of a couple of pairs of cheap trainers, but if I can clean them it would be good.
I just put them in the machine on their own. Mine were washed a lot over the summer, what with all the fine dry weather! Obviously I let them dry first and knock as much mud off as I can. But they've been fine, good as new really and the machine is still the same too.
