The ways to clean up your favorite canvas shoes
Gather the things you need first so that you wouldn’t have to run around as hand washing a shoe can be quite a tedious task. You will need to search for a bucket that is big enough to fit in both your shoes, a mild detergent, a toothbrush or a sponge, a towel and some waste paper.
The suggestion is to use warm water. Mix some mild detergent with this. Slightly dip your shoes in this water without completely submerging it at any point and hold it above the water level while you slowly scrub the shoe with the toothbrush.
Dip it in the water and wash off the dirt that came off from scrubbing. Rinsing it off finally under running hot water and soaking up an excess of the water with a towel is the final step. Leave these shoes to sundry. If you have insoles separately then one of the ways to keep the best shoe insert is to follow the same steps with the insole separately.
Sum it up
Shoes are a way to judge a person’s personality. A neat show will signify a neat personality and leave a good impression.
