How to Clean White Leather Shoes

Leather is one of the easier materials to clean because it doesn’t absorb as much water as some other fabrics. Here’s how to give white leather shoes, like the GREATS Sneakers above ($179; nordstrom.com), a thorough cleaning:

Step 1: Gather your materials.

You’ll need paper towels, Ivory soap, cotton rags (an old t-shirt works great), and Mr. Clean Magic Erasers ($7 for a pack of 8; amazon.com) to wash leather shoes.

Step 2: Tackle surface dirt.

Wet a paper towel, squeeze out excess water, and then gently wipe down the outside of your shoes. This will help remove any big pieces of dirt that are caught in different parts of the shoe. After you’re done with this step, let your shoes dry for 10 minutes.

Step 3: Clean the sole.

Wet your Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and squeeze out any excess water. Run the Magic Eraser up and down the soles of your sneakers or shoes until the dirt and stains are gone. You want to make sure your Magic Eraser is damp but not dripping all over your shoes.

Step 4: Scrub with soap.

And now, the most satisfying step. Wet your rag or cotton shirt and lather it up with some Ivory soap ($5 for 10 bars, walgreens.com). In a small gentle motion, massage the upper part of the shoe until it returns back to its perfect white color. Wipe any excess soap with the rag. After this last step, let your shoes dry again for 10 minutes.

Depending on how dirty your shoes were, you may need to repeat this process a few times.

How to Clean White Canvas Shoes

You may think it’s difficult to get grime out of your white canvas shoes–like the Converse All Star sneakers ($55; bloomingdales.com) above–but it’s actually pretty simple. Here’s how you can clean white shoes with only two household products, baking soda and white vinegar.

Step 1: Gather your materials.

Go into your pantry and grab some baking soda and white vinegar to clean your white shoes.

Step 2: Combine all of your materials.

Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with two tablespoons of white vinegar and a cup of warm water.

Step 3: Start scrubbin’.

Dip a cloth or clean toothbrush into the paste and begin scrubbing away the dirt on your shoes. The baking soda mixture will dry pretty quickly. Then, brush off any remaining paste and let your shoes air dry.

To clean white Converse shoes (or other canvas styles) without baking soda and white vinegar, you can try this soap and water method.
