Are you still not sure whether sneakers and shower curtains can be washed in the washing machine? SSPDaily has prepared tips that will help you make the most of your appliances to save time and effort in everyday activities.

Sneakers and shoes made of textiles

First, remove the laces and put them in a mesh bag to prevent tangling. Then place the shoes in a laundry bag or pillowcase and add a small amount of laundry detergent. Choose a delicate cycle with cold water, but do not use bleach or fabric softener.

Soft toys

First, read the label for washing instructions. If the toys are washable, put them in a pillowcase or special bag. Use the delicate cycle with cold water and mild detergent. Do not use a fast spin cycle to avoid damaging the toys.

Shower curtains and liners

Remove the hooks for the shower curtain and place it and the liner in the drum. Add a small amount of laundry detergent and a glass of white vinegar to remove all dirt. Select a gentle cycle with warm water.

Baseball caps

For effective cleaning, place your cap in a washable mesh or sturdy mesh cover to help it retain its shape. Add a small amount of laundry detergent and select the delicate cycle or hand wash in cold water. Do not use bleach or fabric softener as they can damage your clothes.

Exercise mats

Check the manufacturer's instructions to make sure your mat is machine washable. Put it in the drum with a small amount of mild detergent. Use a delicate cycle with cold water and do not add bleach or fabric softener.

Backpacks and bags

Although sometimes a surface cleaning is sufficient, some bags can be machine washed. Before doing so, empty the bag of its contents and remove all straps and accessories. Place it in a laundry bag or pillowcase to protect it. Use the delicate cycle with cold water and mild detergent.

Pet bedding

Remove any hair and debris before washing. Use the gentle cycle with warm water and a detergent that is safe for pets. Do not use strong fragrances or softeners that may irritate your furry friend.
