My shoes get dirty.All shoes get dirty, they're shoes.Well now its time to clean them up!

Step 1: Prepare For Getting Ultra-Fresh

  • dirty WHITE shoes
  • old tooth brush
  • bleach
  • small disposable cup
  • sink
  • old rag

You will be using bleach so obviously color shoes won't work, but some may. Wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting bleach on, it will happen.Now would also be the time to take before pictures.
Fill the small cup with about half a cup of bleach, and about 1/4 cup of water.
Take out the laces, blah blah.
<p>Bleach is not a soap or detergent. You should wear gloves and avoid it contacting your skin.</p>
This wont harm the white painted leather?
my mum gets this white foam stuff similar to memory foam and get trainer clean good it like soft sandpaper cant remember what its called tho<br />
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser?
Or you could just buy some darker colored shoes.
can we trade bleach with something else cuz my nikes have yellow and blue and white and there really dirty got any ideas to trade it with
what does bleach do to colerd rubber will it affect it
You can use a magic eraser on the rubber. It works quite well. :)
Realistically, for your own health, that of the environment, AND your shoes, a ten dollar canister of shoe shampoo from foot locker will do a better job, and you wont have to explain why you smell like the &quot;Y&quot;. Of course, failing all other methods, good 'ol chlorine should have a minimal effect on coloured rubbers, unless of course they're actually just coloured <em>over</em>, in which case a small test patch should be tried.<br/>
Actually, if you rinse off the bleach quickly, it doesn't smell at all. oh yeah, and goin to the big D, rubber probably won't absorb the bleach and have the same affects as if you poured bleach onto a red shirt , the colors probably won't run.
I use to use bleach until I found out about ammonia.
Thanks! I never thought of trying it this way, I will have to give this a shot. My way was to throw them in the washing machine, sometimes with bleach.
ha I have never actually tried that, so I can't compare, but this way is much quicker because if you only have like 15 minutes to clean your shoes if you cut out the shoelace part, you can wear them right after.
