How to clean white sneakers

White sneakers are versatile and stylish shoes that will suit most casual outfits. The only downside is impracticality. It only takes one rainy day to ruin your favorite sneakers and turn them into a solid muddy stain.

The good news is that you don't need to buy special cleaning products – many simple home methods will bring back the shine and shine. How to wash white sneakers – told by House Digest.

Life hack 1: toothpaste

If the soles of your shoes don't look their best, the best solution is to go to the bathroom and grab some toothpaste. Apply a small amount of toothpaste to the rubber soles and rub it in thoroughly with a toothbrush (avoid gel toothpaste as it can stain your shoes).

Important warning: first test the toothpaste on a small area of your sneakers – some types of rubber soles may not react well to the active ingredients.

Life hack 2: soap and toilet paper

Fill a container with hot water and put it inside your shoes. Leave the sneakers in for about five minutes, and then take a dishwashing detergent (or liquid soap) and a brush. Scrub the shoes thoroughly to get rid of any stains.

Next, wrap each sneaker in toilet paper, covering all parts except the soles, and take it out into the fresh air. Leave the toilet paper on until the sneakers are completely dry – this should make them look much cleaner. This technique works best on a sunny day to help the sneakers dry faster.

Life hack 3: white vinegar

Vinegar also works well as an all-purpose cleaner and stain remover. This method is ideal for pretreatment before washing. Mix vinegar and water in equal parts and pour the liquid into a spray bottle for easier cleaning (or you can use a cloth to apply the mixture). Apply the mixture to your sneakers. Leave the solution on for about half an hour before washing.

Life hack 4: hydrogen peroxide

If the above ingredients didn't help get rid of stubborn dirt, experts advise trying hydrogen peroxide. Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide until a paste-like consistency is formed.

Use a toothbrush to apply the paste to your sneakers and leave it on for about half an hour, then wash your shoes thoroughly and dry them in the fresh air. Hydrogen peroxide is safe to use in a concentration of 3%, but it is better to wear protective gloves to avoid damaging the skin and test the product on a small area of the shoe.
