DIY: Make your Sneakers Look Like New!

No matter how hard you try to avoid messes in new sneaks, there’s always that ONE puddle you end up stepping in… Here is an easy way to make your sneakers look as good as new! Don’t believe me? Check out the before and after picture (above)!


What you will need:

  1. Toothpaste
  2. Old Toothbrush
  3. Nail Polish Remover
  4. Rag

Step One: Remove the laces!

Step Two: Squeeze some toothpaste onto the brush

Step Three: Use the toothbrush to apply and scrub the paste onto your sneakers, focusing on soiled spots

Step Four: Rinse with warm water

Step Five: Using a rag soaked in some nail polish remover, buff away any stains left on the soles and rubber edges of your sneakers

*Repeat steps if shoes are badly stained

I tried this with a pair of old white sneakers and was so pleased with the finished product! It's definitely worth a shot if your workout shoes are in desperate need of a refresher. Good luck!
