How To Clean Your Converse

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Be forewarned: This tutorial may severely embarrass you and lower your self-esteem.  A lot.

When I went to clean my Converse shoes I never realized what a traumatic experience it would really be!!!  You see- they were not just dirty.  They were ATROCIOUSLY nasty dirty with dirt in every crack and crevice.  Like I said, embarrassing.

But! For those of you who could care less and who's self-esteem is already sky high, first, cutos to you.  And second, you've come to the right place!  The greatest way to get the shine back in your shoes is here:


  You know it! And that's all you really need to know.  But because I'm nice I'll go ahead and give you pictures of BEFORE and AFTER.  You might be surprised what alcohol and a little cotton ball can do...

Take your cotton ball, load it with rubbing alcohol, and just start rubbing wherever it's white.  You'll go through an insane amount of cotton if your shoes were as dirty as mine, but it's SO WORTH IT! Look at this before and after!

I told you it was embarrassing.  But I was just dying to show y'all because I was floored with how well it worked.

Another option would be germ-ex, since rubbing alcohol is a key ingredient in that as well.  Which ever one you have more of works great.  

Now go!  Rise my minions and go clean those Converse!!!  (And pray that they aren't too small for you.  I learned that lesson the hard way)
