My kids stride rite tennis shoes could use a good cleaning. The Magic Eraser works well but it doesn't get the mesh under the velcro clean. Has anyone ever washed their tennis shoes in the washing machine?
Thanks,
H.

What can I do next?

I wash my kids Stride Rite tennis shoes all the time and they come out very clean. I also add Clorox color bleach just make sure not to put them in the dryer.

If I have to end up washing shoes I put them in a mesh bag and I wash them on cold on delicate cycle. I than let them dry on top of the dryer while I dry other clothes. They are usually dry the next morning for school especially if I do them the first thing in the morning. Since it is the weekend and still warm outside I let mine wear their sandals.
Good Luck!

I throw all of our SR shoes in the washer with the appropriate colored laundry. Stuff them with socks and set them out to dry.
