Cleaning sneakers: the ultimate tips
Sneakers are truly my guilty pleasure. I often find myself buying a new pair, eager to show them off to everyone outside. But you can bet that they get dirty in no time. However, with my step-by-step plathey'll be fresh again in a snap!
Let's get started
Step 1: Remove the heavy dirt with a brush
Use a shoe brush with soft bristles or an old toothbrush. If you have muddy sneakers, let them dry first. Then, easily brush the dirt away.
Step 2: Erase the stains with the Wonder Sponge
Now comes the magical trick: dampen a corner of the Wonder Sponge slightly. Use this corner to literally erase all discolorations and stains! I'm always amazed at how easy it is
Step 3: Clean the laces and insoles
Clean the laces and insoles with a mixture of warm water and a bit of mild laundry detergent or dish soap. Wash the laces by soaking them in the mixture, kneading them well, and then rinsing them with clean water. Remove the insoles from your shoes and clean them with a microfibre cloth and the mild mixture. Let everything dry thoroughly before putting them back in your shoes!
