7 steps how to wash sneakers

Sneakers have become a fashion staple for many people around the world, and for good reason.

They're comfortable, good looking, and come in a range of styles and colors to match any outfit. If you're someone who loves customizing your footwear to your own unique style, then you'll love the Bullfeet shoes brand, where you can design your own sneakers. 

However, with all shoes, regular cleaning is essential to keep them looking their best. In this blog, we'll explore the best ways to wash your sneakers and keep them looking as good as new. 

Before we dive into the washing process, let's talk about the importance of keeping your sneakers clean. You already know how you can clean white sneakers, using our recommendations in the blog.

Not only does regular cleaning maintain their appearance, but it also helps to prolong their lifespan. Dirt and grime can cause wear and tear on the material and make your sneakers look worn out and tired. Additionally, bacteria can accumulate in dirty shoes, causing odors and potential health issues such as athlete's foot. Therefore, it's important to make sure you're taking care of your sneakers and keeping them clean.

Now, let's get into the nitty-gritty of washing your sneakers. 

  1. The first step is to remove the laces and insoles. This ensures that every part of your shoes gets cleaned properly, and you don't miss any spots.
  2. Then, use a soft-bristled brush or an old toothbrush to remove any dirt or dust from the surface of your shoes. Be gentle when brushing to avoid damaging the material.
  3. Next, mix a small amount of a mild detergent or specialized sneaker cleaner with warm water and use a soft cloth or sponge to gently scrub your sneakers. Make sure to focus on any particularly dirty areas, such as the soles.
  4. Speaking of soles, they are usually the dirtiest part of the shoe, so they require extra attention. Use a toothbrush and the cleaning solution to scrub away any dirt or grime. Once you've finished cleaning your sneakers, rinse them thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining soap or cleaning solution.
  5. Make sure to rinse all parts of the shoes, including the laces and insoles.
  6. After rinsing, it's important to air dry your sneakers. By the way, make sure you don`t forget to check how to dry sneakers in our blog. Avoid using a dryer or any other heat source to dry them, as this can damage the material or cause the colors to fade. Instead, stuff them with paper towels or newspaper to absorb excess moisture and help them maintain their shape. Then, let them air dry in a cool, dry place, avoiding direct sunlight.
  7. Once your sneakers are completely dry, re-lace them and insert the insoles. It's important to note that some materials, such as suede or leather, require special care when washing. Make sure to check instructions in our blog to lace the sneakers properly.

In conclusion, washing your sneakers regularly is essential to maintain their appearance and prolong their lifespan.
