Here are some useful guidelines to clean white Adidas NMD shoes.
Materials needed to clean white Adidas NMD shoes
Before you can get your white Adidas NMD shoe back to a clean and bright state, you will need to gather important cleaning materials just like the ones I have listed below:
- Washing bowl
- Eco-friendly laundry detergent
- Warm water
- Clean rag
- Newspaper or paper towels
- Baking soda
Prepare a cleaning solution
With the cleaning materials you have gathered, you should be able to prepare a cleaning solution with a laundry detergent, warm water and washing bowl. All you need to do is to mix the laundry detergent with warm water in the washing bowl.
After you are done preparing a cleaning solution, the next step is to unthread the shoelaces of your shoes. You can soak them in the cleaning solution, whiles you clean the reaming parts of your shoe. You can opt to replace your shoelaces if they are not in a very good condition.
Brush off excess dirt (mud) on your shoes
This step is very important in getting clean your white Adidas NMD shoes. You should use a toothbrush to brush off excess dirt or dried mud on your shoes. This process makes the overall cleaning of your shoes a lot easier.
Dry your shoe insoles
When cleaning your shoes, in order to avoid water getting into the insoles or better still if you want to freshen up your shoe insoles, it is best to remove the insole of your shoes and dry them.
Wash your shoes
Now it is time to wash your white shoes. This process involves dipping a clean rag into the cleaning solution, and then rub gently the upper parts of the shoe. You can use a soft sponge in place of a rag.
In order to get the sole area of your shoes clean and shining, you can use a soft bristle brush, or a toothbrush, dipped into the cleaning solution and scrub gently the sole areas of the shoe.
Rinse your shoes
After you are satisfied with the cleanness of your shoes, you should now rinse them. The rinsing process involves dipping a clean rag into clean warm water and wipe off the soap residue on your shoes. Repeat this process several times until your shoes are clean off all soap residues.
Dry your shoes
After rinsing, the next step involves drying your shoes. You should avoid drying your shoes under direct sunlight. However, you should dry your shoes in a well ventilated area. To speed up the drying process, place newspapers or paper towels inside your shoes so that they absorb some water.
When your shoes are dried, thread back the shoelaces, and place back the insoles. You can freshen up the inside of your shoes by sprinkling baking soda inside when your shoes are dried.
