How to Keep Your White Men's Sneakers Clean

The top reason white men's sneakers maintain their popularity is because of how clean they look. The footwear adds brightness to your vibe and leaves a good impression on people who see you. 

They will think that someone who can keep their white sneakers looking clean and pristine must have the best hygiene.

We don't want anyone to change their opinion of you, so our team from Olympus is here to ensure you know how to keep them clean. 

While keeping your white sneakers in their box is the best way to protect them from mud, dirt, rain, and other contaminants, their stylish beauty will go to waste. 

You need to use them proudly, so allow our team to share some helpful tricks to keep those babies as white as the day you bought them from Olympus.

We're giving you tips to keep your white “sneaks” clean, which use many products you can find at home. Some people think it's expensive to maintain the cleanliness of shoes, but all you need is time and dedication. 

So if you're ready, let's do it!

Add a Layer of Protection Upon Purchase

Use water and stain protection spray upon unboxing to shield them from dirt and all other elements. Make sure you repeat this step every 2–3 weeks. 

You will be more confident stepping on grass and pavement or going out during the winter knowing your shoes are safe.

Wipe Them After Every Wear

Whether they're stained or not, it's best to keep wiping them after every use. First, use a dry toothbrush to gently remove dirt from the surface. Next, knock the heels together to ensure you get those attached in the crevices. 

For more challenging dirt, dampen a white cloth, add mild soap, and gently wipe off the filth.

Deep Clean Every So Often

While wiping down surface dirt is an excellent way to keep your white sneaks clean daily, it's still essential to give them a deep clean every so often. 

Never put off stains and dirt removal until another day, as they weaken the material of your shoes by staying there longer.

You can use household items for deep cleaning. These items include baking soda and vinegar. 

Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar with one tablespoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of hot water. Mix all of them until they turn into a paste.

Get a toothbrush and apply the paste to the canvas areas and soles of the shoe in a circular motion. Once done, leave the shoes to dry naturally, away from direct heat sources. 

Remove the remaining dry paste by clapping the shoes or using the toothbrush.

Alternatively, you can use toothpaste to clean instead of baking soda. However, use non-gel white toothpaste because coloured ones can stain the white material. Like the baking soda paste, dry the shoes naturally after cleaning.

Hasten Drying Process

As mentioned, avoid drying them via direct heat sources, as they can dry the material and cause it to crack. Instead, let them dry naturally. 

In addition, there are ways to hasten the drying process, which you can apply in case they get wet in the rain or winter.

Maximise the use of newspapers! These gems have moisture-absorbing capabilities that can hasten the drying process. 

Scrunch them up and then place them inside the shoes. Change them every few hours to ensure you dry them faster.

Clean Shoelaces Separately

Your white shoes may or may not have laces. If they do, remove them from the shoes and place them in a lingerie wash bag or pillowcase before soaking them in a bleach solution for five minutes. Keep them submerged.

Once done, toss them into the washing machine and clean them with regular detergent. Use a hot white cycle when you do. Alternatively, you can handwash the laces.

Cover The Scratches

Do the obvious scratches on your white shoes make you mad?

You can now breathe easier, as there's an easy way to cover up the scratches with the help of white nail polish. You can use white nail polish to cover up scuffs and scratches on the leather upper and rubber soles.

Keep Them Odour-Free

The cleanliness of your sneaks extends beyond their appearance to how they smell. You want to leave an image that people won't soon forget, so make sure your clothes and shoes are spotless down to the last detail of how they smell.

One way to do that is to sprinkle baking soda inside your shoes at night and spread them around by shaking them. 

Leave them there to absorb any unpleasant odours. Then, shake the excess off in the morning or the next time you use your shoes.

If you don't want baking soda directly on your white sneaks, you can create small odour-absorbing packets using a cloth, coffee, and strings. 

First, put the coffee inside the fabric and close the pack by tying it. 

Then, add a drop or two of lavender essential oil to the packet to leave a pleasant odour.

We recommend wearing socks or invisible socks from Olympus when you wear them to reduce the incidence of sweaty feet, which can cause odours.

Store Mens Sneakers Properly

Avoid leaving them where dust can easily collect. That way, they can get dirty without having to leave the house. Instead, get some shoe racks or cabinets to protect them from the sun and dust. 

If you do not have any extra room for cabinets or racks, you can always purchase shoe bags. Then, stuff your men's footwear inside and stow them behind the door.

Shower Your Shoes with Care!

Take care of your shoes so that they can take care of you in return. Head to the nearest retailer or online store to get yours now, and remember to apply all that we taught you! 

With clean, white Olympus sneakers or running shoes, we guarantee you'll leave people with an excellent lasting impression.
