Cleaning Canvas Shoes (washing machine?)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I got a couple pairs of Tretorns recently and I'm interested in keeping them as clean as possible. I heard you can just throw canvas sneaks in the washing machine - have any of you ever done it? If so, what's the best water temp, detergent level, etc to use? Never done this before.

fuck clean. the point of white sneakers is to get them dirty. don't walk around like a douche in clean white shoes.

I'm not the guy with a toothbrush in his back pocket, but I'm also not the guy who chucks his shoes in the trash after a few months because they're worn/dirty/smelly beyond repair. I like to preserve my stuff as long as possible so I don't have to spend extra money on new ones.

I only wore my T-56 once and they are dirty as fuck already. I love them (all-white w/green accents) so I want to keep them wearable for as long as possible.

Yeh bung them in the washing machine on a cool wash. Don't put them in a dryer though

getting canvas shoes dirty and worn does not make them unwearable or beyond repair. get those fuckers filthy and keep on wearing them. seriously, go find a mud puddle to jump in. clean sneakers are for pussies.

I think its kind of lame to spend loads of time detailing your shoes, but if I can just throw them in the wash and be done with it, that sounds acceptable. Bleach is just...not green.

think of it this way....if you already own the bleach it's not gonna do any harm. clean your shoes THEN be a tree hugger

bleach eats canvas. and ity also turns white stuff yellow. really bad idea.

still, if he is trying to preserve the life of the shoes soaking them in bleach will be extremely counter-productive.

seriously ross, just wear them dirty.

I don't own any bleach and my detergent is made from vegetable oil instead of petroleum.

jskidder seems intent on presenting himself as a dirtbag. Here are some judgments from the other side. All in fun, of course....

 

1. If you need to 'pre-dirty' your shoes before wearing them, you're an affected poser. 

2. If you bought white shoes but don't want them white, you're confused.

3. If you're an adult but somehow find yourself jumping in mudpuddles, you have developmental issues. 

4. If you're an adult and call someone a 'pussy,' you're not an 'adult.' 

5. If you call someone a pussy for wanting to be/seem/appear clean, you're an idiot. 

 

I'm surprised you don't call yourself "Dirty Sanchez." Was that name taken?
