Use The Door Trick to Dry Your Shoes

Washing shoes in the washing machine is a great way to get them clean, but what about drying them?

Throwing them in the dryer as you normally would with your clothing can completely ruin their shape and permanently damage them.

By using the door trick, you can prevent disfiguring your shoes and the annoying tumbling noise that goes along with it.

Follow these simple steps to implement the shoe dryer door trick:

  1. Tie both of your shoelaces together each end
  2. Place one of the shoes inside of the dryer with the lace draped over the center of the dryer's door
  3. The shoe inside of the dryer should be suspended in the air and not touching the bottom
  4. Close the dryer door and place your other shoe on the ground in front of the dryer
  5. Turn the dryer on air dry or low/medium heat
  6. Repeat the process for the other shoe
