How to machine wash your tennis shoes

Kristianne Bontempo | Towpath Tennis Employee | Online Store Manager

Yes! Bring some life back into those dingy tennis shoes by tossing them in the washing machine. Put them in with the rest of your clothes, or if you’re like me where the thought of those soles touching your pretty tops makes you cringe, you can follow these steps to ensure that your shoes get cleaned with little to no hassle.
  1. Wipe off any residual dirt from the shoe and treads before machine washing, especially if you’ve played on clay or har-tru surfaces.
  2. Remove the laces. This is basically so they don’t tangle in the machine.  
  3. Place shoes in a mesh laundry bag to avoid the soles marking up the inside of the machine. You may also add the shoelaces if needed.
  4. Add ¼ - ½ cup of detergent and/or baking soda (for those extra smelly shoes) to a small cycle.
  5. Once finished, wipe shoes down and set them aside in the sun to dry. Unless you want to hear your shoes banging up the inside of your dryer (which we don’t recommend), it’s best to let them air dry.
Sometimes your shoelaces are so strung out, that washing them won’t do much help. Therefore, buy a new pair specifically made for sneakers for an instant makeover on an old shoe. However, if all the suds in the world can't do those grimy tennis shoes any justice, then stop in the club or shop at our new online store at towpathtennisshop.com for a new pair of treads that are already sparkling clean!
