We all want our white shoes to look brand new and with the new season we bet you’ve tried lots of things. Everyone has their own idea of what keeps shoes clean, but what is the easiest way to get out sneakers to stay white? Here we’ve gathered our tried-and-tested methods to keep our shoes clean during the season.
- Using bleach: A good, surefire way to get rid of dirt and avoid any yellowing from store bought products is to use bleach. In a room with an open window, mix 1 part bleach, 5 parts water, dip a toothbrush and scrub your shoes. With warm water, rinse them and let them air dry overnight.
- Using baking soda: One of the best cleaning agents, baking soda only needs warm water and some white vinegar to get our shoes back to their original shade of white. Mix the baking soda, water and vinegar until you have a paste and cover the shoes with it. Leave them outside for a couple of hours and brush out the paste. They should be noticeably whiter afterward.
- Using shoe cleaner: Try a soft, natural cleaner that you can lather on top of your shoes. Let it work for 2 to 3 hours and then wash off with warm water. This option is free from harsh chemicals, so you can have the peace of mind that it isn’t going to cause wear and tear to your sneakers.
