    Default How do you wash joggers?

    Just picked my joggers up and wondered what the smell was, one of them smells like one of the local cats has pee'd on it (yuck). My fault for leaving them outside.

    So wanted to know how you wash them? Can I throw them in the washing machine?

    I don't really want to bin them as I saved up and paid $190 for them but eww one of the smells terrible.

    Try bi carb in them overnight to help absorb smell and wetness. Then wash in washing machine on warm gentle cycle inside a pillowcase to protect them. you could wash with nappisan or cannaten laundry rinse to kill any nasties and get rid of all the smell.

    I wash my $270 asics in the washing machine. I take the inner sole out and then chuck the shoe and inner sole into the machine.

    It works for me and I've never had any problem with the shoes afterwards.

    We sell joggers in our store, all brands highly recommend NOT washing them in the machine. It can cause damage to the shoes making the lifespan shorter.

    I get shoes regularly so I'm not fussed about shorter lifespan, so I go wash in my machine. Take off any loose dirt with a scrub brush first then wash with jeans. The jeans are meant to stop the shoes bouncing around and breaking the washing machine

    Thanks so much for the advice everyone

    These are asics too Misho I was so happy when I bought them. They were almost $240 and the fellow did them for $190 for me. I saved for ages for them. Was sick of going through heaps of cheaper joggers which I seem to wear out every three months.

    I would hate to ruin them. I have never owned expensive shoes before.

    Just leave them sitting outside to dry (away from the cats) or hang on the line by the laces.

    Stuff shoes with newspaper and dry outside. Will help insides dry faster and keep the shoes shape
