I've always used a concentrated mix of a butyl based degreaser like purple power or simple green. Works great for my Genius and S-Works shoes.

White shoes: Degreaser with a rag. Completely white after that. I've been doing it with my Ekoi R1 shoes and they're white and alive.


Do you use a clothing/fabric-specific type of degreaser?

Is just a regular old clothing detergent suitable, or are you guys using some specific type of soap?

5 years on, white Sidi Ergo2s still Daz white and holding together fine getting put into a washing machine on a low heat and spin. Each in a pillow case.

baking soda + woolite + vinegar + soaking, then scrubbing. After that, always spray with the DWR stuff for shoes.

Interesting ideas to wash ones shoes but mine is a bit simpler.. granted my shoes are already w/in the realm of being two shades short of replacement, I just take out the inner soles, make sure the boa's are tight enough that the cables aren't loose but yet not too tight that water can't get inside the shoes. Toss them into a washer with clothing (usually my batch to avoid the angry authorities) and then straight into the wash on a cold cycle. Voila, clean, white kicks and even smelling Snuggle fresh!

5 cm of lukewarm water in the sink, couple of brushes, some clothes washing liquid.
10 minutes and they are spotless, then rinse under the tap.
Fill them with newspaper and leave for a couple of hours, remove the paper and they'll be dry by the morning.

Might have to refill the sink with more warm water and washing liquid if they're MTB shoes.

These methods are far more sophisticated than my method of just taking my helmet and shoes into the shower with me every once in a while. This method does not work for the most part but does get most of the funk off.

Baby whipes work for me. But I don't, on the other hand, do gravel riding.

I just got a set of S works 6 shoes. I've never had cycling shoes this nice, and I want to keep them that way. I feel like carbon shoes like these shouldn't go in the washer? I also was wondering if anyone ever goes sockless on their bikes?

I have washed carbon shoes in the clothes washer for over 10 years (and cycling shoes generally since my switch to Adidas Eddy Merckx nylon shoes from Santini leathers in the early 80s). You will be fine.

Do you wash them alone, or with clothes? I'm worried how hard they are, they may screw up the washer.

Each in a pillow case or wash bag. Bung a couple of towels in with the wash too.

I have to walk through the utility room to get from where the bike is, to where i shower. So it's really no effort.
