The Proper Way To Wash Canvas Sneakers In A Washing Machine

Pretty much the only downside to white sneakers is that they get dirty really fast. Even if you try your best to keep them clean, dirt and stains are gonna appear. There are tons of ways to clean canvas sneakers, but one of the easiest is just tossing them in the washing machine. Keep on reading for the correct way to wash white canvas sneakers in a washing machine.

First and foremost, if your shoes have any major stains that require extra work, it’s best to pre-treat the stain before the sneakers go into the washing machine. Use a mild detergent or stain remover to gently scrub out the stain with a toothbrush.

You can either remove the laces or tie them tight to secure in place. Add half of the usual dose of mild detergent to the washing machine and set it on a gentle cycle with cold water. Throw in a couple of old towels with your sneakers so they don’t bounce around as much. Let the cycle finish as normal and remove your sneakers. Do not put them in the dryer to dry. Simply let your sneakers air dry or stuff them with newspaper to speed up the process.

That’s it! Your sneakers should come out looking like new.
