can i use the washing machine
Ran the Eridge 10 this morning, fantastic run, yet my trail shoes are caked in mud
I would really appreciate some advice about cleaning them, could i put them in the washing machine? not sure if I could face cleaning them by hand
No. Hose them down then stuff with newspaper and leave to dry. Works fine with mine.
Thanks Running Bhoy
I have taken a deep breath and cleaned them by hand - yuck
Big girls blouse .
I'll admit to that<img />

I've put shoes in the machine many a time. I clean all the excess crap off first, then put them in an old pillow case and put them on a cool wash.

Mine usually just get left till next run, then it all cracks/falls off, but if it is really bad, they do get hosed (or sluiced up & down in the water butt)
However, on my most regular fell-race (series now sadly ended - 'The Trunce'), there was a river crossing not far from the finish
just chuck them in a bucket of cold watwer for an hour..........then remove and pout in the sun..................or more likely stuff with newspapers and dry indoors
or just go and stand in a river at the end ......
madlot - stop stalking me!!!
