How to clean your sneakers

The casualisation of dress codes have cemented white sneakers as a mainstay in many a wardrobe, with the versatile footwear style now equally as suited to the office as it is to off-duty wear. While crisp white kicks add style to an outfit, a mere hint of dirt or scuffing can leave them looking grubby. Fortunately, it’s possible to restore your white sneakers to their box-fresh glory.

To restore cloth sneakers to their original state, spray them with our Stain Spray and let them sit for ten. Remove the laces and inner soles and place the sneakers in the washing machine on the delicate cycle, along with (30ml) of our Oxygenated Bleach, as well as with some white towels (this prevents the sneakers from hitting the drum). Remove the sneakers and let them air dry before replacing the laces and inner soles.

For leather sneakers, create a paste using equal parts of baking soda with our Natural Dish Soap and use a toothbrush to gently scrub the mixture onto your shoes using circular motions. Let it sit for half an hour before using a damp microfibre or bamboo cleaning cloth to wipe off the paste. Use a clean towel to completely dry your shoes before storing, as moisture can damage leather.
