Everyones got an old pair of white chucks sitting at the bottom of their wardrobe which are disgustingly dirty from everyday wear or that moshpit mud at a festival...
But before you go and shell out $100 for a new pair of sneaks, Twitter has come to the rescue! A girl has managed to turn her gross chucks back to their original white AF colour!
And the best part? All it required was cleaning stuff you'll have around home and some elbow grease!
So what's her secret!?
Here’s a mashup of a couple Sarah’s directions mixed in with some hot tips from BestDIY.Tips:
- Remove laces (if applicable).
- Rinse shoes with water.
- Mix a solution of 1:1.5 baking soda and laundry detergent
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to lightly scrub shoes with mixture
- Let sit for a bit.
- Put in an old pillowcase or laundry bag, and wash alone on your washer’s low setting in cold water, with 1/2 cup of detergent.
- Allow airing dry.
Regardless of how it’s done, the results will blow your mind away, or at least make them sneakers look like you haven’t worn them every day.. for three years...
