How Do You Clean Sneakers?

To clean sneakers, remove the laces and insoles, and rinse the sneakers with water. Scrub the sneakers with soap and water, and let them air dry.

  1. Remove the laces and insoles

    Remove the laces, and load them in the laundry. Scrub the insoles to remove dirt, and sprinkle with baking soda to remove odor.

  2. Rinse and clean the sneakers

    Rinse the sneakers under running water to remove excess dirt. Use a mild soap and a soft scrub brush to clean the sneakers. After cleaning, rinse again with water.

  3. Set the sneakers out to air dry

    Place the sneakers in a ventilated area, and stuff them with paper towels or cloth towels. Allow the sneakers to dry completely.
