    Cleaning My Jack Purcells

    Hey chaps - Just wondering if I'm likely to trash my white canvas Jack Purcells in the washing machine.

    They're looking a little grubby now and I'd rather not buy a new pair if a spin in the washing machine and a couple of days drying out will get them looking their best again.

    Anyone any experience of sticking trainers in the washing machine?

    I wash my canvas vans in the washing machine; take out the laces, use non bio powder/liquid so you don't lose the glue that sticks the insole to the shoe and keep it on a lower wash, they'll clean up well enough.

    mine where blue so they lost a bit of colour but with white you'll be fine.

    I put them in a pillow case and tie it. Then I put that in the washing machine with a towel. This stops them getting damaged as they bang off the washing machine drum.
