Introduction: Clean Up Those Nikes!

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.

Step 2: Soak Em'

Soak the soles of the shoes to get any major mud/dirt out of them so it won't get EVERYWHERE later.
Make sure the rubber is the only part in the water, unless you like very soggy shoes.

Step 3: Brush Em'

Dip the tooth brush into the bleach solution and start brushing.Start at the sole and work up working extra hard on tough spots.Constantly rinse the bleach away with water and dry, then keep repeating.
Turn the shoe around and do the other side.Yay! Your shoe should be looking better already.
After that you can put your hand in the shoe like a foot and brush the tongue for good measure. Remember to dry her off after!

Repeat with other shoe.

Step 4: Soak Em' ( Again)

Take the laces you set aside before (you set them aside right!?) and put them in the sink. Turn the hot water on and fill up the sink just enough.While the water is running pour in the rest of the bleach in.(like you used to do with bubble bath in the tub when you were a kid)Let the laces soak for about 30 minutes or more to your desired brightness.

A rubber duck helps with this process.

When they are done soaking hang them up to dry.

Step 5: Lace Em'

After everything dries, lace up your new , clean looking right-out-the-store shoes and kick it!
