You love your Adidas sneakers so much that you always want to keep them as new as possible, right? However, it is never easy to do that unless you buy shoes not for wearing purpose and only put them in the closet. In this post, we will help you take care of your shoes by showing you how to clean Adidas shoes.
How to clean each type of shoes
CLEANING ADIDAS SNEAKERS
- We will start with some useful steps to clean common sneakers.
- First, you should bang the soles together to remove dirt from the shoes. After that, continue to scrub the remaining dirt away with a toothbrush.
- Then, dip the cloth in a mixture of warm water and a mild liquid cleaner. You can also use laundry detergent with this step. Use that damp cloth to wipe all the stains in your shoes.
- After wiping, rinse the cloth in clean warm water and repeat these steps several times until you remove excess soap and suds on the sneakers. If the pair has white outsoles, you can clean it with a soft-bristle toothbrush as well.
- In the last step, let your shoes dry indoors at room temperature.
CLEANING ADIDAS SOCCER CLEATS
Another type of Three Stripes Brand’s shoes is the soccer cleat. So, what you need to do to clean these shoes?
- Since Adidas cleats are used on soccer fields, you need to let the mud on the shoes dry before knocking them together. This move helps you discard excess dirt, grass, and mud easier.
- After that, use a soft brush to get rid of the remaining dirt.
- Similar to the cleaning steps above, use a damp cloth with cleaner water to remove stains from your cleats before air-dry at room temperature.
CAN YOU PUT ADIDAS SHOES IN THE WASHING MACHINE?
Well, you actually can put most kinds of shoes in the washing machine. However, we do not recommend you to use this method. It can permanently damage your sneakers if you don’t know how to do it right. So what step you need to follow to make sure your shoes come out of the washing machine and looking fresh?
- Know whether your shoes are washer-friendly or not. Only canvas, pleather (fake leather), rubber, plastic, knit can place in the washing machine. On the other hand, never use it with shoes from materials like suede or real leather.
- Make sure to get rid of as much excess dirt and scuffs as possible before washing.
- Remove the shoes’ laces and insoles before putting them in a pillowcase or mesh wash bag. This can help take the grime away from underneath the laces as well as not tangled the sneaker.
- Use old towels to wash with your shoes and their other parts to balance the washing machine’s load and protect the shoes from banging around inside the machine.
- Add liquid detergent instead of the powdered one because it can get stuck in your shoes. Moreover, remember to set the washing machine with cold water mode with an extra rinse to remove lingering soap residue.
- Never place your sneaker under direct sunlight, throw them in the dryer or use a hairdryer to avoid color transfer or shrinking the size. All you have to do is let them dry naturally indoors.
- Plus tip: Put a dry cotton towel inside each shoe to help them retain their shape after drying.
