Looking to dry your tennis shoes in the dryer? Here’s a quick guide on how to do it without damaging your shoes.
Place the shoes in the dryer.
Place the shoes in the dryer on a low to medium heat setting. If you have a dryer with a “shoe” setting, use that. If you don’t, set it on low or medium. Don’t put the shoes in the dryer on high because this will too harshly stress and damage the material of your shoes.
Set the dryer to the lowest setting.
Set the dryer to the lowest setting. This will help to avoid any damage to your shoes, as well as help speed up the drying process. Place your shoes in the dryer, making sure that they are not touching each other. You may need to dry them in batches, depending on the size of your dryer and the number of shoes you are trying to dry. Let the shoes dry for 30-60 minutes, or until they are completely dry.
Add a clean, dry towel to the dryer.
Adding a clean, dry towel to the dryer with your shoes will help absorb some of the moisture and speed up the drying process. If you don’t have a towel, you can also use a dryer sheet. Just make sure to put the towel or dryer sheet in the dryer first, then add your shoes.
Let the shoes dry for about 30 minutes.
After you’ve removed as much water as possible from your shoes, it’s time to let them air dry. The best way to do this is to stuff each shoe with a thin towel, set a timer for 30 minutes, and let them sit. This will help remove any remaining moisture and help prepare your shoes for the next step.
Remove the shoes from the dryer and let them air dry for about an hour.
If you’ve ever accidentally dried a pair of shoes in the dryer, you know it’s not a good idea. The heat can damage the shoe’s materials and make them shrink or fall apart. But if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to let them air dry, there is a way to do it without ruining your shoes. Follow these tips and your shoes should come out of the dryer good as new.
1. Remove the shoelaces and insoles from the shoes. This will help the shoes dry faster and prevent the laces from getting tangled in the dryer.
2. Place the shoes in the dryer on a low heat setting. If possible, use a delicate or no-heat setting to prevent further damage to the shoes.
3. Check on the shoes every few minutes to make sure they’re not getting too hot. You can open the door of the dryer to let some of the heat out if necessary.
4. Once the shoes are dry, put the laces back in and let them air out for another hour before wearing them. This will help prevent any potential shrinkage from the heat of the dryer.
