Removing Dirt Stains from Sneakers
It’s more common that you’re going to get dirt and mud on your sneakers (also known as tennis shoes, depending on where you live), so it’s also important that you use a tried and true method to get rid of the grime on them as well.
What you will need:
- Scrub brush or old toothbrush
- Baking soda
- Water (in a cup or mug)
- Toothpick or chopstick
- Put the baking soda in the water and form a paste by mixing it well. Baking soda works really well for this process because of the fact it is abrasive and it will also help to make your shoes smell pretty good too.
- Take your scrub brush or toothbrush and stick it in the paste. Cover the brush well.
- Start scrubbing the stained area. And I mean, scrubbing. Scrub it as well as you can, because it may take a while to get the mud and dirt stains off of your sneakers.
- Rinse off your shoes on occasion to see how far you’ve gotten with stain removal. Alternate between scrubbing and rinsing until your stains have completely disappeared.
- Look underneath your shoes. If any dirt or mud is stuck in your treads, then take a toothpick or chopstick and use it to get in those places.
- Rinse the soles of your shoes to get rid of any excess mud.
- Hang your sneakers out to air dry.
