Furthermore, keep reading and see how you can keep your white sneakers looking brand new with a DIY cleaning solution.
The best DIY cleaning solution I find it works is a mixture of baking soda and dish soap. Check the recipe here, you will need:
– 2 tablespoons of baking soda
– 2 teaspoons of dish soap
– a toothbrush
– a little lukewarm water
– a kitchen towel.
Moreover, follow these simple cleaning instructions and your white sneakers will look brand new in no time:
First off, pour some lukewarm water into a bowl and start adding 2 teaspoons of dish soap. Mix and stir very well to get it all bubbly and foamy.
Next, before moving forward, remove the laces from your shoes. These will be the first one you will clean. Thus, start dipping the shoelaces into the bowl with dish soap and let them soak for 20 minutes.
Then, if there is a lot of dirt, start brushing it off using the toothbrush on the laces. Now, take them out of the bowl and scrub again to completely remove any stubborn stains.
Rinse them very well with cold water until you get all the soapy water out and allow them to air dry.
Next, we need to clean the shoes. Thus, in another bowl, add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and enough lukewarm water to make a paste. Mix the ingredients very well until you get a thick consistency.
For cleaning, you could use the same toothbrush. Dip it in the paste and gently scrub the shoes in circular motions to clean the dirt. Make sure you apply and scrub on the entire surface of your white sneakers.
Then, damp your kitchen towel with cold water and start removing the remaining paste from your shoes. Lastly, you should let them air dry for several hours and make sure they dry completely before you wear them again.
