Anyone who wears sneakers a lot knows it seems nearly impossible to keep them looking clean. After wearing them two or three times, it seems they start collecting dirt, mud, sand, and anything else they come in contact with. This is particularly troublesome when sneakers are white or light-colored, and no one wants to be seen in sneakers that look old and filthy. Is there a way to keep sneakers looking nearly as good as they did fresh out of the box? Yes. We’ve provided a few tips below that you’ll find useful in keeping your sneakers in top condition.
Spot cleaning is great when you’re on the go. Tap the soles together to knock off loose dirt, then use a baby wipe or other cleaning wipe to wipe away any dirt or grime. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are great for cleaning rubber soles!
Can you deep clean sneakers? Using a product designed to clean shoes, apply a few drops to a wet shoe brush. Shake the brush off, then scrub your sneakers until the solution foams – a toothbrush is ideal for getting into tiny crevices or for suede, mesh, or other delicate areas. Wipe with a towel and repeat.
Protection helps prevent stains, so after your sneakers have been allowed to dry naturally, spray canvas sneakers with Scotchguard. If your sneakers are made of suede or premium leather, find a stain/water repellent designed for use on those materials.
One more way to make your sneakers look fresh and clean? Replace the laces, or at least clean the old ones using laundry detergent in a hot wash with whites. Be sure to put the laces in a garment bag so they don’t get all tangled or knotted up with other garments.
