How to Keep Shoes from Clunking in the Dryer

Drying shoes in the dryer
I have never been one to wash and dry shoes.  But now that I have kids, I do see the need for it.  Like when the little one slipped into the creek.  Her shoes were muddy and smelled and seeing that they were still decent shoes before the fall, I didn't want to toss them in the trash.  So, I decided to try to wash and dry them.  However, in the dryer, they made such a clunking noise that I worried about the dryer being damaged.  About a week later, I saw a tip my friend shared about how to end dryer shoe clunking and I wanted to share it with other moms in the same predicament.  It's so simple.  When you put your shoes in the dryer, hang the shoes in the dryer by holding the strings outside the dryer door.  To ensure the strings don't slide in, tie them together in a bow on the outside.  They get the heat from the dryer and dry without all the clunking.  Also, don't put much in the dryer or it may get twisted in the shoelaces.
