I know this is probably better on some sort of mumsnet page, but have any of you lot washed your suede gazelles in the washing machine? Mine are filthy and I’m not sure if it will rip them to shreds? Cheers ladies.

I couldn’t fit my cat in the washing machine when it shit itself, never mind a bloody big Gazelle

 

Joking aside, put them inside a towel before you wash them.

aye, or shove them in a pillow case, that's what I've done in the past  - or just chuck them in the bin and buy some new ones

Spot on...the pillow case works a treat

Agreed.

Not sure how well suede will stand up to washing powder though. I'd probably suggest using a product designed for cleaning water proof coats, less aggressive and doesn't damage the substrate.

Put the washing machine on a blank wash first to flush any residual powder away.

Really really struggling with the idea that you haven't studied numerous weather reports for days in advance to ascertain the likelihood of rain, then decided upon your choice of suede trainers or otherwise accordingly.

Some people are just insane aren't they Marc
