Converse Canvas Shoes in the Washing Machine?


Hey,
I wanted to know if it's safe to put Converse Canvas shoes in the washing machine for a good clean? I generally stick to the toothbrush and detergent/toothpaste method, but due to lack of time I'm forced to look for quicker methods.

Cheers
Kauffmann

My country! In thy days of glory past
A beauteous halo circled round thy brow and worshipped as a deity thou wast—
Where is thy glory, where the reverence now? Thy eagle pinion is chained down at last,
And grovelling in the lowly dust art thou, Thy minstrel hath no wreath to weave for thee
Save the sad story of thy misery! Well—let me dive into the depths of time
And bring from out the ages, that have rolled, A few small fragments of these wrecks sublime
Which human eye may never more behold
And let the guerdon of my labour be,
My fallen country! One kind wish for thee!

Re: Converse Canvas Shoes in the Washing Machine?

Noooooo... !!!


I remember, my red converse was so neat and clean like new after a washing machine trip, whereas my friend's purple converse turned the white laces to Purple and the color faded to the extent that you'll hate it. !!

After then I stopped converse and now I'm PUMA fan.
Have a nice collection of puma too. ^^

Re: Converse Canvas Shoes in the Washing Machine?

Still the risk is there
Why not go a easy hand wash ?

By the way, Which color you own Kauffmann?

Re: Converse Canvas Shoes in the Washing Machine?

Hey JD, hope I'll be able to make it. Our caretaker is leaving back for her hometown, so it's pretty much upto me to take care of all the meals, etc. I'll surely try my best. Hope to see you guys.

Anyway, coming back to the topic, I did try the machine wash, I put them in a pillow a case and put it on cold wash and low spin. After spending 10minutes trying to figure out the program functions on my washing machine, thanks to the faded symbols on the knobs, I got it running.

They cleaned pretty well, but to top it off I gave the white toe bit a cleaning later on with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Let's see how they look when they dry. All in all, it was a breeze cleaning them.

You just got to shove them in a pillow case, close the open-end, I used one of the shoe laces to tie it.

@xplodee - Nice collection, Pumas a wee bit more expensive than Converse and I haven't really faced any problem with them till now.

Btw, one pair is Navy Blue and the other one is Dark Green.

Re: Converse Canvas Shoes in the Washing Machine?

If you have 2 pair of Converse shoes and girlfriend you wash them with hands.Baking soda, lemon , kid siblings toothbrush etc.

aah but however, if you have more than 6 pairs of converse shoes and no Girlfriend you put them up in frigging washing machine shut the lid and mind up and just forget about it.

LoL !!

Not in case of all

I have 5-6 pairs + gf but the main point is never got a chance to wash any of my shoes yet from 10-11 months

P.S. = all shoes are new + have so many that once used get a chance to be used again after longtime
