The great trick to make your white shoes look like new again

Clean white shoes

Don’t give in to the dirt: your shoes will really go back to being white!

We don’t think anyone would object to the charm of white shoes , as long as they keep them in good condition. And here is the “trick”, since they tend to get dirty and black in a short time. The key is to find an indicated remedy that respects both the environment and your well-being.

Consequently, although several companies launch specific items on the market, we advise you to focus on an alternative solution, obtained only with ecological products. To get the desired results you just need to take a few ingredients , as long as they are mixed correctly. How? Continue reading and you will have a clear understanding of the procedure to apply, which is simple and, at the same time, effective.

How to restore white shoes to new condition

As usual, let’s start from the list of ingredients :

  • water to taste (just enough);
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda;
  • 2 tablespoons of Marseille soap.

Sodium bicarbonate can provide many satisfactions, with its powerful abrasive action. Which enhances the properties of Marseille soap , a delicate article, but with exceptional performance in the field, useful both for removing dirt and for giving a good smell. Mix them thoroughly until you obtain a dense and homogeneous mixture.

In this regard, you have two options: either you melt them in a bain-marie or you pour them into a basin of boiling water . Both are fine, so feel free to choose based on your preferences. Maybe try both, so you can find out which ones you feel best with.

Let’s move on to the next step, that is, the adoption of the preparation. Place the mix on the non-abrasive side of a sponge or use a microfiber cloth . Then, rinse 2 or 3 times with the same cloth.

In the case of the sole, however, opt for an old, unused toothbrush , wetting it slightly. Apply a little force, without, of course, exaggerating, otherwise you will ruin the surface. The mixture can also be used indoors, although it would be preferable to be careful, so if it gets too wet, the shoe could develop bad odors due to the humidity.
