Yes, I've washed dsd's several times.
Take the laces out first though.

Great, so do you, just hand wash the laces?

i've added the laces separately to the machine. I put the trainers in an old pillowcase with a towel in the drum. Cif cream is good for the toecaps.

God I just bung DDs in all together don't bother taking out laces.

Yes - we just shove dd2's in complete with laces.

I wash mine laces and all.

ok, I chucked them in a pillowcase and the laces are separately. Will try cif on the rubber too. Can't afford to buy new ones so if they look new I'll get another summer out of them at least smile

Shove them in and then pop them in the airing cupboard.

Sorry thread hijacking, do you think you can put a few colours together?

Wash them again with Napisan, that should get them white again.

I washed blue Cons with burgundy Superga and they were fine.

I poured bleach all over mine, scrubbed it in with a toothbrush, left them overnight and then washed in the machine. I took the laces out and scrubbed them with washing up liquid as in the machine only the exposed bits of the laces got clean so if the laces then moved once done up there was random, patchy, dirty bits. They were brilliant! But sadly I only did that a few weeks ago and they are already filthy again.

Fab, thankyou. Between oh & ds I've a red pair, grey pair & navy pair that need a wash. I guess they must be colour fast or feet and socks would end up coloured as well as laces.
