Save Your Soles: How to Keep Your Sneakers Clean
Running, jumping or dancing– you’re always on the move in your sneakers. Though they’re built to keep up with even your most adventurous activities, they can suffer from serious wear and tear.
Keep your favorite sneaks in tip-top shape by giving them the care they deserve. Here’s how:
Clean Them Up
Don’t let dirt pile up, and give your sneakers a deep clean every few weeks. Use a toothbrush or wooden handle shoe brush, water and mild soap to scrub your shoes down. For white sneakers with stubborn stains, scrub with baking soda and water or a shoe cleaner to restore the bright color.
Wash the Laces
What is a clean pair of shoes without a fresh set of laces? Restore your laces to their former glory by tossing them into a laundry net and putting them in the washing machine with detergent.
Always Be Gentle
Everyone is guilty of sliding their feet into sneakers without untying the laces. It’s a bad habit that does more harm than good. By forcing your way into them, you stretch the laces and the sneaker itself. Don’t send your sneakers to an early grave and take your time putting them on and lacing them up tight.
Combat & Destroy Odor
While you get a kick out of wearing your most prized pair of sneaks, odor slowly starts to creep in after a while. It may be tempting to throw them in the washing machine, but the damage you’ll cause will leave you fuming. Keep foot stench at bay by spritzing a sneaker deodorizer in each shoe.
While sneakers are always game for a walk through the park or quick game of basketball, they still need a pick-me-up to keep them durable and long-lasting. Keep these tips in mind and your kicks will always look like they’re fresh out of the box.
