To wash white Converse sneakers, wipe the rubber with a damp cloth, rub stains with soapy water, wash the sneakers with mild detergent, air-dry them, and brighten them with a chalky white shoe cleaner. This 90-minute process requires cloths, soap, water, detergent, shoe cleaner and a washing machine.Continue Reading
Dip a soft cloth in warm water, wring it out, and wipe the rubber parts. This removes any surface dirt.
Mix warm water with a squirt of mild soap, dip a rag in the solution, and rub it over stained areas. Use additional soap on large, tenacious stains.
Launder the shoes in a washing machine with mild detergent. Do not use a product that contains bleach or a bleach alternative. Use hot water and the shortest wash cycle on your machine.
Immediately after the washing machine finishes the rinse cycle, remove the shoes, and set them on a flat surface in a room-temperature environment. Leave them there until the inside feels dry.
Apply a chalk-based white shoe cleanser to the fabric portions of the converse. Rub it in with a rag, return the shoes to their drying location, and leave them undisturbed until the cleanser dries.
