Step 4

Let solution sit on shoes for 10 minutes. This will allow the cleaning solution to work on any tough stains and help brighten the canvas fabric. No worries if your shoes aren't white, the hydrogen peroxide should not discolor them. You can test it on a small area before using the solution to be sure.

Clean the rubber parts with a Magic Eraser sponge. If the rubber areas of the shoes have any marks or stains on them, simply dampen a Magic Eraser sponge and wipe them clean.
