Best Sneaker Cleaning Solutions and DIY Mixes

Keeping your sneakers in pristine condition doesn't always require expensive products. Many effective cleaning solutions can be made from common household items. Here's a quick guide to both commercial cleaners and DIY mixes for your sneakers.

Commercial Cleaners: Brands like Jason Markk and Crep Protect offer specialized solutions that promise to tackle dirt and stains without harming your sneakers, regardless of the material. These solutions usually come with a soft-bristle brush designed for gentle cleaning.

DIY Mixes: For a homemade alternative, mix a solution of warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap or laundry detergent. For tougher stains on white sneakers, a paste made from baking soda and hydrogen peroxide can be applied with an old toothbrush to gently scrub the affected areas.

Application: Always start by removing laces and insoles. Dip a soft brush into your chosen cleaner and gently scrub in circular motions. Rinse with a damp cloth and let your sneakers air dry away from direct heat.
