Dirty White Shoes? Let Us Tell You How To Clean Them.
We all enjoy our brand new white shoes, they are always in trend. Can work with any fashion item and will be worth the price. The problem is that white shoes can easily get dirty. Be it dirt, water, or any or all type of dirt becomes visible on it. This is a cause for concern as white stains easily and hence a method needs to be there. We will explain to you how you can keep your shoes clean so that they last longer.
- Warm, soapy water: Add around one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to one cup of warm water, stir, and use to clean shoes made of nearly any material. Gently scrub the shoe until it's clean with a towel or toothbrush, then wipe off any extra water and let it air dry for a few hours.
- Great for canvas shoes but equally effective for other shoe kinds are baking soda and white vinegar. To make a paste, combine one tablespoon of boiling water, one tablespoon of white vinegar, and one tablespoon of baking soda. Apply the paste in a circular motion with a toothbrush, then let the shoe air dry for a few hours before brushing and shaking off the dried paste.
- Toothpaste: You might also give it a try (the white creamy type and not a coloured gel). Apply it in a circular motion to the whole shoe, paying special attention to any very stubborn stains. Allow sitting for 10 minutes before wiping with a moist towel. Repeat as necessary.
Lastly, even with all these methods, the best thing to do is prevent it. Before the shoe can get dirty, it is always best to have a safety mechanism in check. The secret to stain prevention is to use a stain and water-repellent spray regularly. Even though you'll still need to regularly clean them, it will be more difficult for dirt and filth to get into the shoe. For patent shoes, water repellants are not recommended because they can impair the shiny sheen.
It is also important to spot clean and not be tempted to use the washing machine as it can damage the shoes. Use the methods above and you will see major differences in your shoes.
