Updated: Sep 14, 2019

Its POURING in almost all parts of India these days. And after a few runs and treks to the gym along with the wet weather acting as cherry on the pie, your sneakers become dull especially if they are white. While the techniques for cleaning sneakers don’t differ that much from fabric to fabric, there are some specific methods that work better depending on the material as suggested by professionals in shoe dry cleaning. Here’s a quick guide by oneclickclean on how to clean sneakers

Before we learn how to clean them our Oneclick Mantra on shoe dry cleaning : Do NOT toss your sneakers in washing machine. This will surely click your mind and is imperative to understand that putting sneakers in washing machine affects the structure and integrity of the foam.


Nylon mesh is breathable fabric at the same time prone to dust and dirt. Use a dry brush to remove the dust. Mixing one part baking soda and one part vinegar and leave it for 15 minutes and scrubbing it later and wiping with soft wet rag. Let the shoe dry in air.


It can be cleaned with a pre soaked rag and mild laundry detergent. Gently scrubbing the area with a brush for a minute and wipe it clean with a soft wet rag to remove any remaining detergent and let it air dry.


Knits are very soft and pliable, and hence more fragile. The experts in shoe dry cleaning suggest to avoid brushing and use a soft cloth. “Be wary with laundry detergent” is the statement to be followed by the shoe dry cleaning service providers.

# Canvas

Canvas on side get easily dirty but they are durable too. A toothbrush helps when used on a cleaning paste made out of equal parts baking soda and warm water. Dip the toothbrush into the mixture and scrub the canvas till it comes out clean. Allow it to dry and later wipe away the hardened baking soda pieces with damp cloth. It's always recommended by shoe dry cleaning professionals to wash sneakers by hand to preserve the integrity of the shoe as canvas is sturdy material.

Stay clean and enjoy walking
