But you will not have this complaint when you use toothpaste to clean the soles of your sneakers. It is best to have a dedicated toothbrush that you can use to scrub the soles of soles.  

  • Keep it in an airy place: We cannot overestimate the importance of keeping shoes in an airy place, and your sneakers shouldn’t be an exception. So how do you keep your sneakers when you clean them?

Therefore, it is always important to remove the laces of your sneakers before washing them. This way, you can clean all parts of the sneakers and ensure that the color is the same in all parts of the sneakers. Now, you can appreciate your sneakers better.

  • Do not over-wash them: We earlier stated that it is important always to clean your sneakers after every use. However, that does not mean that you should always wash the sneakers. It is important to note that there is a difference between cleaning and washing your sneakers.

It is not out of place to wash your sneakers after every five uses. It helps to space out and alternate the wash day, ensuring that the washing does pressure the sneakers.

  • Alternate usage: The same way you should not wash your sneakers always is the same way you shouldn’t always wear your sneakers. Yes, you may have a favorite sneaker. But that should not be the only shoe you would always wear. Even if you are a sneakers person, you should have options to alternate usage.

When you constantly wear a particular sneaker, it becomes liable to wear and tear. Thus, the sneakers would not last long. To avoid this, you should always have options and ensure that you space out the way you wear the sneakers.
