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.
