Once mesh/nylon gets dirty its fucked. I await the naysayers but I have put Air Max in the washing machine with vanish pre wash sprayed on and got good results, it will damage the midsole to an extent though.

Before using the machine try Kids trainer cleaner after giving them a good rub or using nailbrush to get the surface dirt off.

I used Cif/Jif? on the mesh toe box of a pair of 87s the other day worked a treat. Get alil bit on a toothbrush scrub while rising it off with alittle trickle of water over them. Only did the front toe box. Made alot of difference.

washing machine advice is right but I am certain this weekens the air bubble as I have done this on several pairs of Bowermans and they burst shortly afterwards…

So if you really care about them hand wash and Vanish…

Jason Markk has been very good for me so far, even worked on those redwing type spongey soles.

anyone ever managed to "un-yellow" some soles. got some cp bballs that have tonnes of life left but sole looks a bit vintage… any tips? see some shit on youtube shilling different products but surely it can be done with some household items

Cool

Been meaning to sort a pair of mine where the soles are yellowed. I’m right in thinking though that if the peroxide got on the black suede upper it would bleach them?
