As a matter of fact, the only problem that white Air Force 1 wearers in Pakistan have is that their shoes get dirty way too easily. Today, we’re here to resolve that issue as well, so all you readers can keep your favorite kicks as white as the day you unboxed them.
Get ready to delve into the art and science of sneaker care, so say good riddance to scuffs, stains, and yellow soles.
Baking Soda & White Vinegar
When it comes to home remedies, nothing even comes close to the effectiveness of baking soda and white vinegar. Similarly, it can be used as a spot cleaner for the Air Force 1s.
Method: Concoct a solution of one tablespoon of baking soda, two tablespoons of white vinegar, and a cup of water. Mix it and use it to scrub off the dirt from your Air Force 1s gently.
Non-gel toothpaste is also an effective alternative to cleaning scuffs, marks, and dirt from your Air Force 1s and restoring them to their former glory.
Method: Clean your Air Force 1s with a soft cloth to wipe away any loose dirt and debris, then use a non-gel toothpaste with a damp cloth to gently scrub the affected areas. Once the dirt marks have been wiped clean, use a clean cloth to wipe the toothpaste.
Though micellar water is originally intended for skincare purposes, it is also safe to use on leather products. Its natural composition attracts dirt and oil and cleans the leather effectively.
Method: Use a clean cloth and damp it using micellar water, then gently scrub the areas affected by dirt and debris in a circular motion till you achieve the desired result.
Household Cleaning Eraser
If all the accessories mentioned above prove too difficult to acquire for you, then you can always opt for the traditional option, the household cleaning eraser.
Method: Use clean water and a clean eraser to wipe away any dirt or grime on the leather upper and the sole of the shoe.
While all of the methods mentioned above are effective and easy to execute, they’re mostly for cleaning the leather and the sole. This still leaves us with the shoe laces, but fortunately for you, there’s no specific way to clean them separately. They can be washed in a washing machine with a detergent and water or even with dishwater!
Shoes are one of the most noticeable aspects of any attire, so it’s important that you always take good care of your shoes, just as you want them to take good care of your feet. Occasionally, cleaning your Nike Air Force 1s and storing them in suitable conditions when not in use will significantly increase their shelf life and grant you a more comfortable user experience.
