Cleaning Tip – How to Clean Canvas Shoes

Published April 6th, 2016 in Blog | No Comments »

How to clean your canvas shoes

Are your favorite canvas shoes looking a little dingy or stained? Try these handy cleaning tips:

  • Avoid using bleach as it can permanently alter the color of the fabric, even on white shoes
  • Don’t put shoes in the washer and dryer; this can loosen the rubber soles
  • Add a few drops of laundry or dish detergent to a cup of cold water and use a toothbrush to gently scrub the canvas clean. Gently and thoroughly rinse the outside of the shoe
  • Remove the shoelaces and scrub them separately; then hang them to dry
  • Place the shoe in a well-ventilated area, preferably in a sunny spot, with a fan blowing on it to speed drying time
