The bottoms of your sneakers, or the soles, can become really disgusting. Your sneakers will look newer for longer if you clean them regularly and pay special attention to the bottoms of your shoes. Cleaning your sneaker soles can prolong the life of your sneakers. You don't have to use fancy products or toxic cleaners to ensure that your sneaker soles stay new looking. You probably already have the necessary items on hand for cleaning your sneaker soles.
Things You'll Need
- Liquid dish soap
- Soft cloth
- White toothpaste
- Baking soda
Wet the cloth and squeeze a small amount of mild liquid dish soap on to the wet cloth.
Rub the bottoms of your sneakers with the soapy water on the cloth. This should remove and clean any surface dirt on the soles of your shoes.
Grab a home remedy for cleaning sneaker soles. This could either be baking soda or toothpaste. Take either of those options and brush them on to the sneaker soles with a toothbrush. This should whiten the soles of your shoes.
Wipe the residue of baking soda or toothpaste away with a damp cloth and allow the sneaker soles to air-dry.
