Using the Dishwasher to clean gear

Got back from a trip last weekend on ruby horse thief and my river shoes that I've had for a couple years now were caked with mud and crusty with salt and grime. Put them in the dishwasher with my river cap and they are like brand new. Stoked. It got me thinking though, my straps get all muddy and dirty from doing rivers in Utah and I wonder if i could put them in the dishwasher and give them a nice rinse as well. Anyway just thought I would share.

we put most our sex toys in the dishwasher we always put the glass dildos in there after backdoor play it seems pretty important

so your shoes were caked with mud........ we usually knock of the biggest pieces of mud before they go in

We got a couple double enders that don't fit in the dishwasher. I strap them to the trailer and take them to the carwash.

Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself

I found this to work very well with my partner steel toilet seat and scrub brush...until my wife caught me.

Kidding aside, does the heat mess with glue bonding the sole of the shoes? Dishwashers can get pretty hot.

Panama you liar. You have obviously been practicing defiling yourself for quite some time.

I used to hang out at an arborist forum where periodically one would ask if it was OK to put chain saw parts in the dishwasher.

Nooooooooo.

Take your shoes and soak/wash/rinse them somewhere else.

We paid almost 700 bucks for our Bosch and I respect tools.

BTW.
I love being played like this.

6feet, I had wondered about cleaning my straps due to fine sand getting into the webbing and causing abrasion on the tubes. I don't think the dish washer would be a good bet. Wouldn't the sand and mud "hurt" the machine? Good luck as I see this thread has taken a different direction with tips and tricks for cleaning out gutters and shafts. All we need now is a random comment from COsurfGod about my mom to bring it full circle.
