Cleaning Converse Chuck Taylor's

My white converse low-top tennis shoes are starting to look kinda dirty. I wondered if I could put them in the wash machine without harm. They are just white canvas low-top Chuck Taylor's, but I love them and don't want to mess them up. Any ideas, suggestions, or tips?

I've washed plenty of runners in the washing machine. A cold wash with regular soap always worked fine and air drying.

Wash em in the washing machine, but hang them dry in the sun outside or you might risk delaminating the soles from the uppers if you do them in the dryer.

Just a thought.

If they're white it shouldn't matter whether you put them in the sun, they're faded anyway:)

I always wash canvas shoes in the washer. Stuff the toes with old grocery bags and air dry.

Throw them in wash(I do mine with the towels). I also live in Floirda so I put mine upside down over the a blower on the a/c unit outside and they dry in about an hour. It is great. Oh and don't use any bleach it discolors the bottom rubber portion.

I have washed the white ones, but after drying, it leaves a horrible yellow border near the soles. How can I remove it? Thanks
