Did your mom (or do you) ever wash sneakers?

Just wondering because my mom used to throw my gym sneakers in the washing machine and then set them in the sun to dry. I always thought it was so weird, but it never hurt them in any way.

  • Yep. When they get too dirty, especially after mowing the lawn, I have thrown them in the wash. Doesn't hurt them. It's not different then clothing.

  • Sure. Shoes get dirty (and smelly if you are my son). I wash sneakers all the time.

  • I do it to my son's sneakers, they can get really dirty! I've also washed mine.

  • I do it all the time with all of ours. I hate it when one of them steps in dog poop though because you have to scrape it out first..gag.
