Clean white Sneakers? Tips & Tricks

Tip number 1: hand wash instead of washing machine

With white sneakers, it is tempting to simply throw dirty sneakers into the washing machine, but you should rather leave it! Temperatures that are too hot and spinning can cause the adhesive to loosen, the shoes to discolor or the sole to crack. Instead, invest in home remedies and use a brush. This also applies to laces! So best brush with the brush and shampoo in a circular motion over the white shoes until foam forms. Then wash off with lukewarm water and dab with a towel. For example with your dirty Air Force 1?

Tip number 2: detergent & toothpaste

Another method works just as well to clean white sneakers! To clean you need white toothpaste, dishwashing liquid, a clean toothbrush, water and a clean towel. You just have to let the toothbrush soak in warm water and put a swab of detergent on it. Then apply to the shoes and massage in. Then dab off the foam and repeat the same with the toothpaste. Then let the sneakers dry for a few hours and you will see that it works wonders. Maybe it's your turn again?

Tip number 3: baking soda

You can also clean your sneakers with baking soda. The home remedy is ideal for cleaning white shoes. You will need a simple glass, colorless washing-up liquid, a clean toothbrush, a little water and a dry cloth. Then mix the baking powder 1 to 1 with the detergent. Then apply the mixture in a circular motion and also allow the foam to act. Then wipe off the foam and let the sneakers dry. You can easily clean your adidas Superstars with baking soda.

In addition to all the home remedies, there are of course other options such as the magic weapon of the dirt eraser. However, in order to protect the shoe in advance after buying your new shoe, you should not do without an impregnation spray.
