Keep White Sneakers White With All-Purpose Cleaner and Regular Cleanings

Keep White Sneakers White With All-Purpose Cleaner and Regular Cleanings

There are a few ways to try and revitalize dirty sneakers, but the secret to keeping white sneakers white is regular cleanings and a typical household cleaner you already have.

If you’re determined to keep your fancy white shoes as bright and clean as possible, Jolie Kerr at Racked suggests you reach for a typical all-purpose cleaner like Fantastik or Formula 409. Use paper towels, a sponge, and a toothbrush to really get in there and remove all the dirt and scuffs. If you have a really stubborn stain, Kerr recommends using a Magic Eraser. You probably already have this stuff around the house, so that’s a plus, but the downside is that you have to clean your shoes constantly. Try to clean your shoes once every few wears, or at least once a week, and you’ll be able to keep them from getting dirty and yellowing. And don’t forget the white laces! Toss them in a mesh laundry bag, give them a wash, and let them air dry so they don’t shrink.

Break In Boots Gradually Each Day Before Going On a Big Hike

Break In Boots Gradually Each Day Before Going On a Big Hike

A nice pair of hiking boots can last you almost forever, but you need to break them in before you head out on any major excursions. You can ease into the breaking-in process by wearing them while you run quick errands or work around your home.

If you don’t break in your boots before heading out a lengthy hike, your feet are going to hate you. That’s why Jeremy Anderberg at The Art of Manliness suggests you wear your boots a little bit every day to break them in before you head out:

You don’t want your first venture with them to be on your 10-mile hike. Start by wearing them while doing chores around the house, running errands, taking walks in the neighborhood, etc. When your feet hurt in those first few days, take them off, let your feet rest, and put them on again the next day until they hurt again. With a little bit of time, you’ll be able to wear them all day without any pain and you’ll be ready to take them out on your next adventure.

Even after breaking them in, Anderberg explains there still might be trouble spots, especially on a really long trip. If that’s the case, note where those spots are during your walks and add cushioning, lace your boots differently, cut your toenails properly, or wear bandages in preparation.
