Tips To Take Care Of Your White Sneakers

A pair of white sneakers is a popular fashion item because they are clean and neutral, and they go well with almost every colour. Obviously, looking extra stylish in a pair necessitates extra care when cleaning and maintaining white sneakers. White sneakers are prone to staining. Most people would choose different colours, especially if they needed to walk during the rainy season. Don't worry, rain or shine, there are ways to care for white sneakers. Here are a few tips to take care of your white sneakers.

  • Start with a brush

Begin by brushing the entire upper and midsole of the shoe with a soft bristle brush. This step removes any top layer of dirt and dust that would otherwise have embedded deeper into the material, making cleaning more difficult. Always use the appropriate brush for the appropriate shoe. To be specific, you'll need different ones for suede, knit, leather, and mesh uppers.

  • Take out laces

Before washing your shoes, always remove the laces. This will allow you to get into all of the shoe's tight corners and will also help the insides dry faster. If your shoes get wet while the laces are still tied, the metal grommets on the sneakers can rust. Metal grommets are the fittings for the holes through which the lace runs. If the shoelace is white, soak it in warm water to remove tough stains.

  • Clean with care

After wearing your shoes, soak them in warm water to clean them before washing them. Some of the dirt and stains will dissolve as a result of the water. To the warm water, you can also add a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Allow your shoes to soak in them for at least 4 hours before washing. While it may be tempting to simply bleach your sneakers because they are white, this is not recommended. After a while, most bleaching products will start to discolour your shoes yellow. It is preferable to clean your shoes with soap and other naturally occurring products.

  • Proper drying and storage

It's not a good idea to put your white shoes in the dryer. The heat from the dryer can damage the shoes and cause them to shrink. Sun drying will help them last longer. The sun will dry it all around while also keeping the insides fresh and clean. The smell of your shoe is also important and is part of the cleaning process. To absorb any unpleasant odours, place a bulb of onion or unused teabags in your shoe for about 24 hours. Store your white sneakers in a location away from direct sunlight. White sneakers will turn light brown when exposed to strong UV rays. To keep the colour of your shoes, store them in a cool, dark place.

Above mentioned are a few tips to take care of your white sneakers so that they stay the way you bought them with you the very first day.
