We covered the basics of maintaining clean white shoes in the previous article but here are more specific ways to clean white shoes – such as white sports shoes, white canvas shoes, white leather shoes, and many more!

How to Clean White Canvas Shoes

Use this method to clean white shoes like Converse All-Stars or Vans sneakers and keep them looking spotless. What you’ll need:

  • Toothbrush
  • 3 tbsp. baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • A soft cloth or paper towel
  • Bleach pen, if needed
  • Eraser sponge

Step 1: Remove Loose Dirt

Untie and remove the shoelaces so you can easily access all parts of the shoe. To loosen significant bits of caked-on dirt or mud, take the shoes outside and knock the bottoms together. Use a dry toothbrush or small, soft-bristled brush to scrub the shoes and remove any remaining loose dirt. Be sure to brush along the rubber soles and outer edges of the tongue.

Step 2: Clean Shoes with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Mix the baking soda and white vinegar in a small bowl to form a paste. Dip the toothbrush into the mixture and apply the paste all over the shoes, scrubbing softly to remove dirt and stains. Allow the mixture to harden on the shoes.

When it’s scorched, brush off the more significant bits and wipe off the remainder using a soft cloth or paper towel. On the other hand, for stubborn stains that won’t budge (grass or blood, for example), use a bleach pen on the spots and wait about five minutes before washing the solution off with hot water and liquid detergent.

Step 3: Clean Rubber Soles

Use a sponge eraser like Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to remove any scuff marks or streaks of dirt on the white soles of the shoes. Wet the sponge eraser with water and scrub around all sides of the rubber sole. Dampen a clean cloth or paper towel with water and wipe off the shoes. Let them air dry completely before wearing.

How to Clean White Leather Shoes

Follow these steps to give your white leather shoes that fresh-from-the-box look. What you’ll need:

  • Toothbrush
  • Liquid dish soap
  • One cup warm water
  • Eraser sponge
  • Soft cloth
  • White paper towels

Step 1: Clean Shoes with Soapy Water

After removing the shoelaces, use a dry toothbrush to brush off any loose dirt. Mix a few drops of liquid dish soap into a cup of warm water. Dip the toothbrush into the soapy water and gently scrub all over the shoes.

Step 2: Clean Soles and Let Dry

After removing the shoelaces:

1. Use a dry toothbrush to brush off any loose dirt.
2. Mix a few drops of liquid dish soap into a cup of warm water.
3. Dip the toothbrush into the soapy water and gently scrub all over the shoes.

How to Clean White Sport Shoes

Refresh your white mesh sport shoes with these cleaning tips.
What you’ll need:

  • Toothbrush
  • 1 tbsp. liquid laundry detergent
  • Warm water
  • Soft cloth
  • Bleach pen
  • Eraser sponge
  • White paper towels

Step 1: Brush Away Dirt

Mesh is a delicate fabric that can be snagged or damaged easily. While cleaning white mesh shoes, keep in mind that you’ll need to use a softer touch than you would with a sturdier fabric like canvas. Use a soft-bristled dry toothbrush to gently brush away any excess dirt on the outside of the shoes.

Step 2: Clean Shoes with Soapy Water

Add a small amount of liquid laundry detergent to a bowl of warm water to create a soapy cleaning solution.

Working in circular motions, apply the cleaning solution to the shoes using a soft cloth. Periodically rinse the fabric with warm water as you clean it to avoid spreading dirt or stains across the shoes.

For stubborn spots like grass stains or ground-in dirt, use the toothbrush, soapy water, or a bleach pen gently scrub the mesh fabric.

Step 3: Rinse Shoes and Let Dry

When rinsing your mesh shoes, avoid submerging them in water, which can damage the interiors or affect their shape. Instead, use a clean damp cloth to wipe down the exterior of the shoes. Fill them with white paper towels to help them retain their shape and let the shoes air-dry entirely before wearing.
