How to clean your sneaker
- Setting up
Setting up requires you to source supplies and prepare your workstation. When you have everything you need, remove the laces from the shoes.
- Remove excess dirt
Knock the soles of the sneakers together to remove any excess dirt and dust. You can also use a soft brush to rub any dirt remaining.
- Spot clean
Spot cleaning requires quick wipes. Quick wipes will have your kicks looking clean in minutes. Use the dab and twist motion which is effective in helping lift the stain you are handling.
- Deep clean
Deep clean your sneakers in case they need special attention. To deep clean, dip a brush in hot water and apply a cleaning solution to it. Gently scrub the outer surface of your sneakers using a back and forth motion, ensuring lather forms as you scrub to allow the bubbles to do their work.
Remove excess soap with a microfiber towel and check to see whether the shoes are thoroughly cleaned. If they still need more care, repeat the deep clean step until you are satisfied. You can use a toothbrush for the areas you are not able to access. You can apply whitening toothpaste to your canvas shoes to leave your shoes sparkling.
- Clean the midsoles
Use a brush and a cleaning solution to clean the midsoles. You can also use a damp sponge dabbed with a cleaning solution to scrub the midsoles. The sponge helps clean light dirt and stains. For a deep clean, use a brush instead. Dry the midsoles partially using a microfiber towel.
- Clean the laces
Scrub your laces with a toothbrush and cleaning solution, or wash them in a washing machine. Alternatively, you can use a new pair of laces which you can purchase online. New laces are the easiest way to have your sneakers looking clean.
The best way to dry your sneakers is to let them air-dry overnight.
When they dry entirely, lace them and spray some weatherproofing spray which acts as a coating on your sneakers. The sprays differ from brand to brand, and it is essential to read and follow the instructions on the container.
You can choose one brand and stick with it or alternate between them as they are almost similar.
