White shoes are stylish and bright when they’re new and clean, but they can get dirty very quickly from normal wear. Luckily, it’s super easy to clean your shoes and remove stains with items you’ve already got at home. Whether you’re rocking your favourite sneakers, canvas lace-ups, or white leather shoes, we’ve got a solution for you. Get ready to freshen up your kicks with our step-by-step guide to making your white shoes look new again.
In a nutshell, we will tell you:
Soap and water work best on all kinds of shoes, including canvas shoes, tennis shoes, and white leather.
You will have to create a mixture of soap and water. Mix dish soap into 240 ml of warm water. Any liquid dish soap will work for cleaning your shoes. Use about 1 teaspoon (approximately 4.9 ml) of soap so the water is sudsy but still clear. Stir the cleaning solution so it’s evenly mixed.
Alternative: If you don’t want to use dish soap, you can substitute 1⁄2 cup (120 ml) of white vinegar.
Now, you can follow these steps:
Gently scrub the shoes with the mixture, working in circular motions with a cloth or toothbrush. Make sure you flip the cloth every time it turns dirty.
Dip the head of the toothbrush into the water so the bristles are wet. Work the bristles in small circular motions on the surface of your shoes, focusing on heavily stained areas. Use a slight amount of pressure to work the cleaning solution into the shoe’s fabric.
Pro - Tip: If your white shoelaces are stained, take them out of your shoes and scrub them with your toothbrush separately.
Dip a clean white microfiber cloth or magic eraser into your soapy water and wring it out. Wipe in short back and forth motions along parts of your shoes made of leather, rubber, or plastic. Keep working the eraser until all scuffs and stains are removed.
Magic erasers can be found in the cleaning section of your local department store or on online sites like Amazon, Flipkart, etc.
Use either a cloth or paper towel to pat the soapy water and dirt off of the shoe. Avoid wiping the towel across the shoe’s fabric since you could spread the dirt across the fabric again. Don’t try to completely dry your shoes with the towel. Just lift off the excess cleaning solution from the surface.
After you initially pat them with a towel, put them in a well-ventilated area in your home so they can dry completely. Leave them alone for at least 2-3 hours before wearing them again.
In case there is a tough which you can’t clean at home, you can get a shoe cleaning service. Because professional experts have access to special chemicals that can remove old and tough stains completely without damaging the shoe fibres.

Pro-tip: We suggest you prefer hand washing as frequent agitation of the washing machine may damage the shoe fabric. And it might look dull or worn out after consistent wash cycles.
Baking soda works best if you’re trying to clean canvas, mesh, or fabric shoes. Here’s how you can use it:

If you’re cleaning sneakers, you can usually clean them by wiping them down with a little warm water and mild laundry detergent on a washcloth. Use a toothbrush to scrub the edges of the soles. You can also use a little leather conditioner if your Adidas shoes are made of leather.
Suede is tricky to clean because water can damage it. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to blot up any moisture. To remove dried-on stains, scrub them off with a pencil eraser. You can also try rubbing away stubborn stains with white vinegar. After the shoe dries, rub it with a suede brush to restore the texture of the suede.
