Just back from a long run with my lovely training group! Very wet and a bit muddy so here’s a few tips on how to get your trainers sparkling and ready to run again.
I simply scrub my trainers with a big brush and water in the shower, rinse them well and let them drip off a while. You could use some washing up liquid if you like your trainers to smell lovely. Those lucky enough to have an outside tap could do this outside to avoid bringing muddy trainers into the house. Never put them in the washing machine! It will result in damage long term. Alternatively cycle home from your run through all the big puddles and they self-clean!
The best way I’ve found to dry my trainers is to stuff them really full of newspaper. I have a dehumidifier so mine will sit in front of it for the rest of the day before removing the newspaper. Alternatively place the trainers near, but not directly on a heat source; radiator, night storage heater, wood burner, open fire, sunny window sill? Whatever you have. For super quick drying re-stuff with more paper.
Your trainers soon be ready to hit the road or field again.
Happy Running x
