Why are my shoes not staying white?
While white shoes are a gorgeous option, unfortunately they do tend to change colour over time and become less than the bright white you loved at first glance!
- This can be from wearing your white high heels in wet weather or dirt,
- Not maintaining a cleaning routine,
- Storing them incorrectly,
- or simply age!
But don’t fret, there are ways to fix this!
How can I make my white heels white again?
With some elbow grease and consistency, you can usually take your white high heels back to their former glory. While this isn’t possible with every pair of shoes and does depend on the individual reasons for your shoes changing colour, there are often options you can try to regain the white colour of your high heels.
With white heels being made from synthetic vegan material, approach cleaning your heels with care so as not to damage the upper. Try using an unscented baby wipe on any stains, and some petroleum jelly on stubborn areas to remove scuffs or scratches. Vinegar can also be a great way to get your shoes white again; make sure to dilute the vinegar and always test a small patch first! You may also find that toothpaste in small quantities can help take off any yellowing!
How do I clean my white heels with baking soda?
Baking soda is a popular way to remove yellowing from white shoes and make them nice and bright again! Simply make a paste with baking soda and some vinegar, and carefully wipe the shoe with a toothbrush or microfiber cloth to clean. Results for this method may vary depending on the material the shoe is made from, so always be sure to test your mixture on a small, inconspicuous spot first to ensure you won't damage your lovely shoes.
