For my birthday two years ago, my parents got me a pair of white Converse slip ons. I wear them pretty seldom because they’re white, so I don’t want to ruin them. I wore them to the farmers’ market recently because that’s basically me just sitting for six hours. No big deal. Except the week I happened to wear them, it rained. And getting rained on under a tent was okay, until puddles formed and made awful marks on my white sneakers. So of course, I did what any normal person would do. I texted my mom to ask how to clean white sneakers.
Of course she knew. That’s the thing about moms. They just know everything. But, in case you don’t know, I’m gonna tell you her trick.
How To Clean White Sneakers
First, pour some laundry detergent in a bowl. Now, grab a toothbrush out of your stockpile. If you still coupon like me, you won’t be hurting if you use a toothbrush on this.
Dip the toothbrush in the detergent and rub it on the fabric of the sneakers.
Then, use the same method on the soles (including the sides and bottom).
Put the sneakers in a washing machine safe lingerie bag and close the bag.
Toss the bag into the washing machine and run a cycle.
Put them outside to dry.
That’s it. You can also wash other sneakers with this method too, now that I think about it, but I never wash my other sneakers this way.
