Just found a pair of Converse in the back of DS1's wardrobe which still fit him despite being bought last summer (result!)

They are a tad dirty though......could some kind soul please tell me how to wash them? ie detergent & conditioner or just detergent and what temp/cycle.

DH chucked his in with detergent only at 40degrees on a quick wash and they came out fine.

I put ds and dp's converse in on the normal wash cycle and they came out beautifully - and the white bits were white white white grin

I usually tie shoes up in a pillowcase and put in with some towels to prevent damage to machine drum
But 40degrees with normal detergent is fine

I put mine in a pillow case first.

I just searched on google and this came up. White converse currently in the washer with. Possibly too much detergent. Oops. Will report back...
