General care guidelines

In order for your Converse sneakers to last as long as possible, first of all you need to remember a few very important recommendations for their care. For myself, I highlighted these:

table_pic_att15037018941 Tip 1. Wash the sole regularly

After each walk, the converse sneakers must be cleaned, and the sole is no exception.

Treat it with a damp cloth - so it will last a lot longer.

table_pic_att15037018942 Tip 2. Act fast

Do not allow the stain to be absorbed into the textile.

As soon as you notice the pollution, try to remove it immediately.

 Tip 3. Do not forget about the laces

An important stage of washing shoes - cleaning shoelaces (especially if they are white).

Do not throw them in the washing machine, handle your own hands.

table_pic_att15037018954 Tip 4. Keep shoes right

In the offseason, it is very important to keep shoes properly.

Put your converse in a pouch of breathable fabric or in a cardboard box.

To prevent the product from losing its shape during storage, push inside paper napkins.

By the way, if you do not know whether it is possible to erase slipons in a washing machine, then my answer is - you can. Washing rules are the same as for conversions.

Washing Features

And now is the time to answer the question whether it is possible to wash conversions in a washing machine and disassemble the most effective ways of cleaning such shoes.

In the washing machine: 4 rules

Many people wonder how realistic the conversion of conversions in a washing machine. I have no definite answer to it.

Before washing, make sure your shoes are originalBefore washing, make sure your shoes are original

On the one hand, manufacturers do not recommend such a method, as an intensive mode of washing and spinning may adversely affect the quality of the product and the sole. On the other hand, I know several people who practice machine wash without any problems.

If you decide to wash your sneakers in a washing machine, follow these rules.

Make sure you own the original shoes. Chinese fake will not survive the test of washing.

table_pic_att15037018986 Rule 1. Preliminary preparation

The first thing you need to remove the insoles and laces - they are washed separately.

Also make sure that there are no loose parts on the product that can get stuck in the typewriter and break the drum.

table_pic_att15037018997 Rule 2. Use accessories

Color or white conversions are best placed in a special bag to soften the beating of the shoe against the drum wall.

If there is no such bag, replace it with a plain old pillowcase.

table_pic_att15037019008 Rule 3. Washing mode

This is the most important point that should be given due attention:

  • Mode. Choose the delicate mode that is commonly used to clean silk and cashmere.
  • Water temperature. Should not exceed 30–40 degrees.
  • Spinning. No spin - it can severely damage shoes.
table_pic_att15037019019 Rule 4 Cleaning agent
  • For washing black and color products pick up gel for washing colored things.
  • To wash off white sneakers, use white laundry gel.

Hand wash: 4 recipes

Hand washing conversions - a more gentle and effective process. There are several proven methods:

table_pic_att150370190110 Rule 1. Soak with powder
  • In cool water, dilute a small amount of laundry detergent for baby clothes.
  • Soak the shoes in the solution.
  • After rubbing the surface with soap and brushing.
  • Rinse the product in cool water.

Instead of powder you can effectively use a soap solution.

table_pic_att150370190211 Rule 2. Soda and Vinegar
  • Mix a tablespoon of soda with the same amount of vinegar.
  • Apply cooked gruel to an old toothbrush or cotton pad.
  • Treat the surface of the shoe.
  • Wait a few minutes and then intensively rub the material with a brush.
  • Use a clean cotton pad to remove any residue.
  • Rinse the shoes in cool water.
table_pic_att150370190312 Rule 3. Toothpaste

Washing white sneakers can be done with the help of a conventional toothpaste with a whitening effect:

  • Apply the paste on an old toothbrush or foam sponge.
  • Spread the product evenly over the entire surface of the shoe.
  • Process the inside of the product in the same way.
  • Wait 30 minutes.
  • Remove any excess paste with a clean foam sponge.
table_pic_att150370190313 Rule 4 Style stick

Special pencil with detergent (price starts from about 300 rubles).

Carefully read the instructions on the label and follow it.

After washing you need to take care of proper drying of shoes. Hang sneakers in a dry, warm place with plenty of air. It is best to hang them by the tongue, or as shown in the photo.
