How to clean Your Sneakers Without Washing Them
Keeping your laziness in mind, we have found 5 amazing ways in which you can make your dirty sneakers look brand new again without having to wash them all the way through.
- Toothpaste: Toothpaste is one of the best ways to clean the soles of your sneakers (which is usually the part that gets dirty unless you have run a marathon during the rains). Put some toothpaste on an old toothbrush and rub the dirty area (use a small amount of water). Once you see the dirt being scraped off, wipe the shoe with a piece of cloth or a sponge.
2. Hair Conditioner: Weird? Yes. Effective? Yes! Just put some conditioner on the dirty area, spread it, and rub it in with a sponge. Once the shoe is clean, wipe it off with a clean cloth. Doesn’t get easier than this.
3. Lemon juice and baking soda: Simply dip a toothbrush in lemon juice and then in baking soda. Use it to scrub the dirty part of the shoe. Wipe off with a cloth when done.
4. Eraser: You know that pesky little stain that somehow just landed on your sneaker soles? Or on any other rubber part? Try rubbing that off with a white eraser. Yes, the ‘pencil-eraser’..
5. Vinegar: Please avoid cleaning suede shoes with water. If you don’t have access to suede cleaner solution (it’s easily available, please go and get one), you can use vinegar to clean them with a very soft brush. Make sure you brush the suede in one direction only.
