USE A MAGIC ERASER

This little sponge is a godsend when it comes to keeping your sneaks scuff-free. Use it to spot-treat stains by wetting it and gently buffing out marks on the canvas…or the rubber.

TRY WHITE VINEGAR

No Magic Eraser? Good old white vinegar works just as well. Dab it on a clean cloth or paper towel and then gently scrub any scuffs or stains.

BUT FOR REALLY NASTY STAINS, TRY SHAMPOO

Say you got an oil smudge right on the heel of your shoe. Grab a clean cloth (or an old toothbrush) and bust out your mildest shampoo. Use warm water and gently rub the area until it gets a little sudsy. You should see the stain start to lift!

REPLACE THE LACES

True story: The laces get dirtier a lot faster than your actual sneaks do. (Blame the oils on your fingers…and the fact that laces tend to get dragged around on the ground.) It’s a quick fix that will cost you no more than a couple of bucks.

LAST RESORT: APPLY SOME POLISH

In a pinch, white nail polish is great for touching up small (but gnarly) stains on your white shoes. Hey, it’s better than shelling out cash to replace the entire pair.
