9 Hacks to Keep Your White Sneakers Clean
It's beyond clear at this point—fashion girls are obsessed with white sneakers. But one infrequently discussed aspect of these trendy wardrobe staples is just how one is supposed to keep them so white. After all, one quick trip to the coffee shop could result in a number of mud-, dirt-, or oil-centric disasters.
And yet, celebrities, bloggers, fashion editors, and everyone in between always seem to sport only the whitest of white sneaks. How do they do it?! We did a bit of digging to come up with some super-helpful tricks to keep those babies sparkling long after you've made the initial purchase. Keep scrolling for nine hacks to keep your white sneakers sparkling clean.
To the crux of the issue: Can you use bleach on white sneakers? Yes, you can, but you have to dilute it. Most shoe-care guides suggest mixing one part bleach to five parts water; any more than that and you risk turning your white fabrics a weird yellow tone. Dip your toothbrush in the diluted bleach solution and scrub the shoes gently. Rinse with warm water when you're finished.
