    Cleaning my dirty dirty shoes

    My shoes really stink..I don't know what would be best, I know I can just hose them. But I was wondering if the dishwasher works, someone told me to do that but then I asked him if i should take my cleat off and he said hes never tried it.

    So can I use the dishwasher?
    Do i need to take the cleat off?

    this is what I do...take shoes into the shower with me, dish soap, harder bristle brush and just take the soles out and wash everything in the shower with me real good and stick them in front of a standing fan for about 24 hours. Pretty, clean and don't stink no more...

    If your shoes are stinking, you really should consider the type of socks you're wearing in the future.

    Just so that it doesn't do it again ;-)

    ive put my shoes in the washing machine with a lot of soap and warm water.
    just the shoe. not with anything else.

    then when u take them out i put them outside where the dryer vent is. if u dont have a dryer vent then use a fan.

    drying ur shoes in a dryer will wear them out and probably open the door. and sound like ur house is blowing up.

    I don't wear socks so they have to stay outside. Though if they're traveling a long distance in the car I bag 'em up.

    Something just not appetizing about using a dishwasher for a parts or shoe cleaner...

    You might also try replacing your insole with a charcoal activated one like this http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Scholls-Des.../dp/B001EPQ9IM
