How to Clean White Chuck Taylors


Clean shoes give a favorable impression of you as a person. Using bleach usually takes the difficulty out of cleaning most white shoes. However, white Chuck Taylors are an exception--you should not bleach them for best results. Luckily, you can clean your Chucks easily with the right materials.

Things You'll Need

  • Washing machine

  • Mild laundry detergent

  • Liquid chalk shoe cleaner

  • Fabric brush or cloth

Step 1

Wash your white Chuck Taylors in the washing machine using mild laundry detergent.

Step 2

Air-dry the Chuck Taylors at room temperature. Allow them to dry for 10-12 hours.

Step 3

Apply liquid chalk shoe cleaner in a circular motion on the outside fabric of the Chuck Taylor with a fabric brush or cloth. Apply the shoe cleaner in a thin layer, as applying too much can cause dirt to stick to the shoes.

Step 4

Allow the shoes to dry for about an hour before wearing them.


Do not dry shoes in the dryer, as this may ruin the fabric.
