The most fantastic footwear that you can wear is sneakers. Can you agree with us? If you can, then you certainly have your favorite model. A pair of sneakers that you keep buying over the years is a pair of sneakers that have become your best buddies.
When we talk about sneakers, the most popular ones in the whole wide world are the famous Vans. Every true Vans fan has more than one pair; because you can wear them everywhere. And if you are new in this world and bought your first pair of Vans, try wearing them with everything. They go good with sporty outfits; they go even great with evening attire, and they go the best with casual outfits.
And what’s the one thing that most sneakers enthusiasts love to do: keep their sneakers clean. So you may be asking yourself how you can keep your Vans super clean; we have the answer you need.
The best and the easiest way to wash your Vans is to put them in the washing machine. And yes, you can wash them in the machine. But it would help if you considered some things before washing them.
What to do before you wash your Vans
Before you put your sneakers in the washing machine, you need to check the material they are made of. The traditional and the most popular models are made out of the canvas, and you can safely wash them in the machine.
But if you have suede Vans, you won’t be able to wash them in the machine. You can wash them by hand, and you need to be very gentle with them because if you are too rough, you will destroy your shoe.
How do you wash them?
Okay, we said you could wash them in the washing machine, but what program should you use and detergent.
Before doing anything else, you should clean any dirt that’s on your sneakers with a gentle bristle.
When it comes to detergent, you want a gentle one, and you don’t want to use a lot of it. You must also use a detergent that’s bleach-free if you want to save your sneakers’ color. If your sneakers are white, then you could use bleach or detergent with bleach in it.
Never wash your sneakers at high temperatures; they should always be washed in the lowest setting.
Take the laces out for the best result. If you want to save your Vans, you should put them in a bag or an old pillowcase, and that way, they will be secured.
The washing machine should work if it’s half full, so it would be best if you could put a few towels in the machine too, to prevent your sneakers from banging around.
When they are washed, you should dry them in a place away from the sun. If you put them directly in the sun, you risk the color to fade.
We hope that our advice helped you and that you now know how to wash your Vans.
