Okay ladies — so you all know that I am obsessed with white shoes! Looking down at my feet in clean, fresh-looking white shoes makes me feel happy, haha!

The funny thing about wearing white sneakers is it goes hand-in-hand with one of my other favourite things: cleaning! With white shoes comes endless cleaning, especially when you have two gorgeous big dogs who love to play and jump all over you. Quite a few of you have asked how I keep my sneakers so clean, so I’ve put together my tips for you. 

  • Pre-treat: I always treat any stains with a stain remover spray before I place them in the washing machine. 
  • Tie the laces: Tying up the laces stops them from getting tangled. Whenever I put my sneakers in the machine, I always wash them with an old white towel as well. That way they don’t clunk around in the bowl. 
  • Cold wash: Make sure you use a cold wash setting. Warm water may cause damage to the structure of the shoe. My machine has a quick wash cycle that takes about 50 minutes — so I use that. 
  • Washing powder: To help dislodge any nasty stains during the wash, I use a scoop of powder for tough stains. 
  • Air dry: Once the cycle is finished, I loosen the laces and allow the shoes to air dry. Just like when you are cleaning your workout clothes, don’t use a dryer! While they are drying, I wear a different pair of sneakers.

One more tip for you ladies: don’t mix colours when you wash your shoes! There is nothing worse than seeing the colour has run and your shoes are ruined. 

Always give your sneakers a quick check over after they’ve dried, especially if they are a little older, to make sure nothing has become damaged. The shoes you wear during workouts are really important for protecting your feet and posture. If you’re wearing the wrong shoes, or your shoes have started to break down, then you may risk an injury. 

So there you have it ladies — my super-easy guide to cleaning your sneakers. If you’re like me and love having clean shoes on your feet, I hope this helps! 

Love, Kayla xx
