The 5-Step Hack To Make Your Sneakers Clean And White Again

Chontel Duncan is a personal trainer that has taken to social media to share a pretty useful hack. She revealed an easy way on how to make white trainers shine even after they have turned gray with stain and dirt. The hack of 29-year-old trainer from Brisbane is both useful and budget-friendly and she explained how to achieve the results you need a $2-$3 Sard Wonder Laundry Soap bar.

She calls this a ‘six-hour shoe transformation’ and has revealed the 5-steps this procedure requires for efficient results. She wrote:

Before anyone asks this is NOT sponsored, it’s simply just a clever “shoe hack” that I swear by.

Explaining how you should not rinse the shoes, she listed the 5 steps. They are as follows:

1. Using a “Sard Wonder Laundry Soap” bar ($2-$3) and water, scrub the soap bar all over the shoes while continuously rinsing it under cold water so the shoe becomes damp
2. “ Do not rinse the shoes”
3. Place the wet soapy pair of shoes in direct sun until dry (it only took 2hrs to dry where I live)
4. Pop shoes into the washing machine on a cold cycle (can add your regular washing powder to it if you like)
5. Pop the shoe back in direct sunlight to dry
6. DONE ✅

The shoes after the 6-hour transformation:

The shoes before the 6-hour transformation:

“Using a “Sard Wonder Laundry Soap” bar ($2-$3) and water, scrub the soap bar all over the shoes while continuously rinsing it under cold water so the shoe becomes damp,” she wrote as a first step.

The procedure seems to be quite useful since, oftentimes, we do not know where to even begin cleaning our dirty trainers without damaging them.

Someone else also posted a cleaning-trainers-hack, just last month. PartyxDirtyDan used a hairdryer on the foam of his shoes in order to help and iron out the crinkles. He shared a before and after image of the shoes in Reddit, captioning it with:

Tried using a blow dryer on my Acronym Prestos after seeing the post about un-creasing NMD blocks. Worked great!

He explained that you should heat the spots for about a minute, and then ‘move on to another section’.

Explaining how you should be careful with the glue and make sure not to melt it, he said:

Switch off on the areas you work on to make sure you don’t melt the glue on the outsole and upper. I just did a few rounds on each spot and it turned out great.

He proceeded:

After you apply heat don’t put your fingers on the hot areas until they have cooled down or you could leave an imprint. 

Dan explains it’s a tedious process, saying you should be careful ‘where you put your hands and aim the blow dryer’.
