How to clean white sneakers

Every day, the fashion world surprises us with new styles and trends, but there are details that are always relevant. White sneakers are a versatile shoe that will match almost any outfit.

However, there are unpleasant nuances - white sneakers can suddenly start to turn yellow. And while the dirt can be washed off with improvised means, there are problems with bleaching. Informacion magazine told us how to restore shiny whiteness without resorting to chemicals.

The most effective life hack

No need for aggressive chemicals, acids or abrasives. It is enough to use a product that is available in every home - toothpaste.

The paste is effective due to its mild abrasive properties. They allow you to remove the most stubborn stains from your sneakers, restoring their original color. So it's an economical and environmentally friendly solution.

Step-by-step instructions

Step 1. Before starting the process, it is important to remove the laces from your sneakers. Then shake the shoes vigorously to get rid of street dust and dirt.

Step 2. Use an old toothbrush to apply toothpaste.

Step 3. Brush the dirty areas of the sneakers with a brush. It is important to make circular motions to clean every corner.

Step 4. Patience is the key: after applying toothpaste to the stained areas, leave the shoes on for about 10-15 minutes. This time will allow the components of the paste to break down dirt and stains.

Step 5. Use a damp cloth or, if necessary, rinse the shoes under the tap to remove the remaining toothpaste.

Step 6. It is better to dry your shoes in the fresh air. If possible, place the sneakers in a shaded area, as direct sunlight can change their color and shape.
