Although white Converse shoes portray style and fashion, the white color can attract noticeable stains and be difficult to keep clean. Since the fabric of the shoes easily absorbs materials such as grass and dirt stains, using a stain removing material can help remove the preliminary stain, while a washing machine and the right detergent can remove the hard-to-remove stain that remains.
Things You'll Need
- Stain remover
- Washing machine
- Laundry detergent (no bleach)
- Scrub brush
- Rubbing alcohol
Remove any heavy stains with an instant stain remover available at most supermarkets. Apply the stain remover and scrub using a scrub brush or an all-pourpose scrubbing sponge.
Place your converses into a washing machine, set the temperature as cold and start the washing machine. Avoid using detergents with bleach, as this may ruin the color of your Converses as well as weaken the fabric.
Remove your shoes from the washing machine and allow them to air dry. Although colored converses should be placed in the shade to prevent discoloration, white Converses can have a more pearly-white color when exposed directly to the sun.
Tips & Warnings
