After washing a couple of pairs of tennis shoes recently, I discovered that getting them dry wasn’t as easy as just tossing them in the clothes dryer. Not only did they make a terrible racket as they bounced around inside the rotating drum, they also kept turning off the dryer by hitting the inside of the dryer door.
A little searching online revealed a very simple technique for drying shoes – without noise and without damaging the shoes or the dryer.
- Tie the shoestrings of a pair of shoes together into a loose knot.
- Close the dryer door with the shoes hanging on the inside and the knot on the outside.
- Run dryer on low heat until shoes are dry.
Doesn’t get much easier than that!
