Buying a pair of white shoes seems like a good idea until one day they are no longer white and are instead covered in dirt.
Now, there’s an easy way to return your white sneakers to their former glory.
Twitter user, @sarahtraceyy, shared before and after cleaning pictures of her white Converse shoes along with instructions on how she did it.
"I am a miracle worker," she wrote alongside the images.
The best part is, you probably have the ingredients in your cupboard.
What you’ll need:
- Baking soda
Mix 1:1.5 parts baking soda and detergent. Scrub the mixture onto your shoes with a toothbrush. Rise and put in the washing machine, just make sure you remove the laces and inner soles before washing on the delicate setting. Add some towels to the wash to balance the load and to stop the shoes from banging against the drum.
