The first thing that you'll probably want to do is fill your bucket with water, and then thoroughly scrub the insides of it with a sponge. Then dump the water somewhere that isn't in your way, such as a side yard or a garden.

First, place your shoes in the bucket and fill with water till above the shoes, and then place 4 or five capfuls of bleach on top, then stir. Let this mixture sit for 30 minutes. Make sure that your shoes are completely under the substance.

Step 4: Finishing Up

After you have let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, you can take out the canvas shoes. I suggest letting them air dry for around 15 minutes, and then throwing them in the washer and dryer for a nice finish. I hope that you enjoyed this instructable, and your new rustic shoes!!!
