Keep White Sneakers White With All-Purpose Cleaner And Regular Cleanings

There are a few ways to try and revitalise dirty sneakers, but the secret to keeping white sneakers white is regular cleanings and a typical household cleaner you already have.

If you’re determined to keep your fancy white shoes as bright and clean as possible, Jolie Kerr at Racked suggests you reach for a typical all-purpose cleaner. Use paper towels, a sponge, and a toothbrush to really get in there and remove all the dirt and scuffs. If you have a really stubborn stain, Kerr recommends using a Magic Eraser.

You probably already have this stuff around the house, so that’s a plus, but the downside is that you have to clean your shoes constantly. Try to clean your shoes once every few wears, or at least once a week, and you’ll be able to keep them from getting dirty and yellowing. And don’t forget the white laces! Toss them in a mesh laundry bag, give them a wash, and let them air dry so they don’t shrink.
