Cleaning fabric sneakers and sneakers
The easiest way to clean these shoes is to wash them! This can be done by hand or using a washing machine. For hand washing, it is better to choose powder marked “for white fabrics” or laundry soap.
Shoes should be soaked in soapy water for half an hour, and then washed by hand, paying special attention to contaminated areas. If you decide to machine wash your shoes, choose a wash cycle for athletic shoes or delicate fabrics.
Remember, you should not put shoes that contain fragile elements in the washing machine. The laces and insoles must be washed separately.
Cleaning leather sneakers
Simple manipulations will help clear white leather shoes from stubborn dirt. The first thing to do is remove the laces and remove the insoles.
The second step is to remove dust with a damp cloth. Next, you need to lather a sponge and rub the dirty surface of the shoe.
To surely get rid of pungent stains, you need to prepare a product from milk and potato starch, combining the components in a 1: 1 ratio. The resulting substance must be applied to the leather surface, rubbed a little with a toothbrush and removed with a clean rag.
Removing local stains
