As a climber, I wouldn't recommend putting your climbing shoes in the washing machine. The washing machine can be too harsh on the delicate materials and construction of climbing shoes, potentially damaging them. The agitation and high-speed spinning can cause excessive stress on the shoe's rubber, stitching, and overall structure. Additionally, the heat and detergents used in the washing machine can negatively affect the adhesive that holds the shoes together. Instead, it's best to clean your climbing shoes by hand. Gently scrub them using a soft brush, lukewarm water, and a mild soap or specialized climbing shoe cleaner. Afterward, allow them to air dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct heat sources. Taking these manual cleaning steps will help preserve the integrity and performance of your climbing shoes.
