Who doesn’t like a squeaky clean pair of trainers? They absolutely go with anything and are workable for simple outings or wanting to go for a day out in jeans and skirts! But here’s the thing- it becomes quite a hassle to keep them all clean. But don’t worry- we have got the perfect hacks for you! Check out ways in which you can make sure your trainers are spotless:
Spot clean stains: If there are specific stains on your trainers, you can try spot-cleaning them using a mild detergent or a specialized sneaker cleaner.
Use a cleaning solution: For a deeper clean, you can create a cleaning solution by mixing warm water with a small amount of mild laundry detergent or sneaker cleaner. Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the solution and gently scrub the entire surface of your trainers. Avoid submerging your trainers in water or using bleach, as these can damage the material.
Air dry: Allow your trainers to air dry naturally in a well-ventilated area. Avoid direct sunlight or using heat sources like a hairdryer, as excessive heat can warp or shrink the materials.
Clean laces and insoles separately: While your trainers are drying, you can clean the laces and insoles separately. You can either hand wash them or put them in a laundry bag and wash them in the washing machine on a gentle cycle.
Protect and maintain: Once your trainers are dry, you can apply a sneaker protector spray or a fabric protector to help repel future stains and dirt.
