To get your Chucks lookin' new, you'll need a few basic materials:
powdered laundry detergent
Mr. Clean Original Magic Eraser
liquid stain remover (in a spray bottle)
four or five dirty light-colored towels
one hand towel (for cleanups)
mesh wash bag for delicates
Step 1: Prep
First, remove your laces, and set them aside.
Next, spray liquid stain remover on your shoes, soaking every inch of cloth.
Don't forget to spray under the tongues to get those pesky jeans stains out.
Let your shoes sit for about five minutes. While you wait, toss two or three of your towels into the wash so that half of the drum is full.
Optional: wipe down the rubber surfaces of your shoes with a wet Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to remove any loose grime or dirt.
Step 2: Prepping Your Laces
Next, shake the bottle like you would a carton of orange juice. Do this for about 30 seconds. Careful though... some liquid will seep out. Use the hand towel to clean up the goopy mess.
