I haven't had much success with throwing my trainers in the washing machine before, and I couldn't be doing with using any harsh chemicals. Luckily Pinterest came to the rescue with this great post by Learning to Be Me using everyone's favourite ingredients: Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda) and Vinegar!!
This is how we adapted the instructions:
- Bicarbonate of Soda (2 parts)
- White Vinegar (1 part)
- Hot Water (1 part)
- An old toothbrush, cloths etc
Mix the ingredients to form a paste and then scrub your trainers where they need it (all over on mine!!). Then just rinse off under a cold water tap. That's it! The longest part of this is waiting for them to dry. Make sure you allow enough time and weren't naively planning to wear them the same day...!!!
This is one of those "Wow, that was really needed" clean up projects!!!
