If you're anything like us, you know that white clothes are both a blessing and a curse. Especially white shoes. Sparkling white kicks look great with so many outfits...and with a fair price tag, they seem like a worthy investment. At least, until you take a few steps outside. White shoes are notorious for accumulating stains quickly. After a few replacement pairs, that worthy investment doesn't seem so great anymore. That's why we set out to find the best--and easiest--way to clean your shoes. We love this cleaning hack from YouTube user JairWoo because it uses household items and really does work. Check out how in his instructions below:


First, mix baking soda, water, and hydrogen peroxide in a medium-sized bowl.


Next, use a cleaning toothbrush to scrub the thin paste onto the shoe. Two layers should be enough.


Don't forget the shoelaces!


Find a nice, sunny spot outside to dry your shoes and laces. Let them sit for about four hours.

The cool part comes next. To see the final steps in restoring your white shoes, check out JairWoo's video below. You can almost see the stains fall off the shoes! We can't wait to try this trick out tonight.
