5 Tricks To Make Your Shoes White Again!

1 - Baking Soda and Detergent 

What you need

  • Baking soda
  • Detergent
  • Toothbrush

Mix 1:1.5 parts baking soda and detergent. Scrub the mixture onto your shoes with a toothbrush. Rinse and put shoes in the washing machine (just make sure you remove the laces and inner soles before washing).   Tip: Place shoes in a mesh bag or a pillowcase to prevent the shoes from banging.

2 - Magic Eraser

Another way to get white shoes clean again, particularly if they have grippy rubber soles like Converse, is to use a little cleaning tool called a Magic Eraser (can be purchased from Woolworths, Kmart or Bunnings). This little cube of white foam can remove almost any mark, just add water and start rubbing!

3 - Baking soda and Vinegar

(don’t get it confused with detergent)

Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a cup of water. Use a cloth or old toothbrush to scrub your shoes until clean. Works on leather and canvas.

4 – Toothpaste

If it's good enough to keep your teeth white, then it's good enough to keep your kicks clean. Add some white-gel toothpaste to an old toothbrush, add a little water and scrub the dirty area of your leather, canvas or mesh shoes, then wipe away excess with a damp cloth. 

5 - Toilet paper and water

This method is best for canvas shoes that - despite undergoing other methods of cleaning - still have yellow marks on them. Soak sheets of toilet paper with water and cover your sneakers with the paper like Papier-mâché. Leave to set and dry for 12 hours. Peel of paper and - voila! clean white shoes sans yellow marks.
