Step 5: Rinse Time!

Wipe off any excess tooth paste from the shoe with a clean, wet area of your wash cloth. Don't forget to wipe away any dirt left behind! Remember to dry off your shoe after, because you don't want to slip.
<p>this is rEALLY COOL I HAVE been meaning to clean my shoes and this is an easier way to do it.</p>
I think I have a thougher kind of rubber on my shoes, because my shoes are kind of more yellowish than white. I may have rushed this guide when I used it. I just used a fair amount on both shoes, rubbing it all over ther soles, under and around the sides, and let it sit for a good 20 minutes before I took a warm towel and rubbed / wiped the toothpaste until it got cleaner and til the toothpaste was visually gone. I am not giving this guide a &quot;10/10&quot;, since I've spent some time to rubb it with the towel and rinsing the towel through the process. The colour of my shoes soles are whiter but still kind of yellow with some darker spots / dirt here and there. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I put too little effort in it, or that I didn't follow the guide thoroughly, or that my shoes have another type of rubber that's harder to clean than other shoes? But I will still recommend this guide as it may be perfect for someone else. I may look into other methods to get my shoes whiter.
Smart. I also use toothpaste to clean silver and gold. Works great!
Thanks :)
