How to clean your sneakers!

Sneakers. I've always loved that kind of shoes! When i was younger, i used to literally wear them to death. I never ever took care of them. I decided that needs to change. Here is how i clean them.

Here are my workout shoes. They were this dirty because i went horse riding with at friend's and i walked in the mud/horse poo haha. I don't mind walking in that kind of stuff with these shoes because they are the ones i workout in but i like them to look nice and clean after my muddy adventures. My sudden urge to clean my sneakers comes from this video. I L-O-V-E her shoe collection and i was amazed by how clean they all are, taker a look at it ;)

These are the props i use to clean my sneakers : baby wipes, whitening toothpaste and a brush with soft bristols (an old toothbrush would be better but i didn't have any). The baby wipes are for the parts that are not the sole, the toothpaste & brush are for the sole. The toothpaste actually helps to clean white soles. What you want to do is put some paste on the brush and gently brush the white parts of your soles. When you're done, take the paste away by using a clean baby wipe. 

Here are some before/after pictures of my Nikes:

Here's a before & after from the sole. There was a blood stain next to the "m", probably from a bug or something, oopsie, but as you can see, it's gone!

Obviously the shoe on the top is the clean one, the bottom one is the dirty shoe. Pretty amazing huh?

I hope you guys enjoyed it, let me know if you have any "taking care of your shoes" tips in the comments! 

Talk to you soon, Lyly
