Keeping your white runners crisp and clean seems to be one of the hardest tricks of all – until now! While the A-list might be able to purchase a new pair of sleek white trainers when they get theirs dirty, how can we mere mortals ensure our shoes stay looking new? We’ve discovered seven great hacks for keeping your runners clean and white. Plus, we’ve included a few of our all-time favourite white runners. Because we need more than just one, right?
Nail Polish to the Rescue
You can easily use white nail polish to cover scratches. If you see a little scratch or smudge on your new white trainers, just take out your white nail polish and do a little touch-up.
Add the Vinegar
Another household product, vinegar! Take a cloth, and dip it in vinegar from your kitchen cupboard. Rub gently to remove small stains. Voilà!
One pair of trainers that we just can’t live without are a fab pair of Converse. It doesn’t get much more classic than white high top Converse! No wardrobe is complete without a pair.
Washing Machine? A Big No from Us!
Contrast to popular belief, never put your trainers in the washing machine. Your washing machine will be much too rough on your trainers, even on the gentle setting. Stick with the hand-wash method.
Use an old toothbrush, warm water, and gentle soap if your shoes have some dirt spots in hard-to-reach places. Scrub gently and you’ll be left with squeaky clean trainers!
Love those Laces
Your laces make a big difference when it comes to keeping your trainers looking fresh, so show them some love every now and again! Hand-wash your laces in warm water with gentle soap and let them air-dry.
Once you’ve cleaned your beloved trainers, stuff the inside with some paper towels. This will speed up the drying process so you won’t have to wait as long to wear them!
Oil Stains? No Problem!
Use your gentlest shampoo, warm water, and a toothbrush or rag to gently wipe at the oil smudge. It should come right out, so no need to worry!
