To people who like wearing Nike shoes and sports, cleaning Nike shoes may be the serious headache. The shoes will get dirt and some unpleasant smell while you are exercising or playing sports. Nike shoes have to be cleaned when you have worn them for one week if you want to keep clean.
How to clean Nike shoes without damaging the shoes? You know, it is easy to reshape the soles or shrink the shoes when you wash them. After all, Nike shoes cost you quite a bit and you can’t afford to purchase a new pair yet. Additionally, you don’t want to alter that perfect fit and mess up your moves. Here are some easy steps to get those Nike shoes looking and smelling almost like new.
If there are stains or ground-in dirt on the soles of your Nike shoes, then use a toothbrush and gently scrub until most of it is removed. If necessary, put a little liquid dishwasher detergent on the bristles of the toothbrush. Remove the shoelaces and lift the tongue of the Nike shoes to expose as much of the inside as possible.
Then place the shoes, bottoms up, on the bottom rack of your dishwasher. Place the shoes several inches apart. Add the dishwasher detergent to the machine. Do not put dirty dishes in with your shoes. Set your dishwasher on the normal cycle but be sure to turn off the heat dry cycle. When the dishwasher cycle is finished, remove the shoes right away. If the shoes have any residue on them, gently brush it off with the toothbrush. If any areas are not as clean as you would like scrub the area with the toothbrush.
Lift the tongue out of the shoe and lay it over the toe of the shoe to expose as much of the inside of the shoe as possible. Place the shoes under a fan set at medium speed overnight. In the morning, your Nike shoes should be clean, dry, and stink free.
Clean your Nike shoes in a right way and you can enjoy the comfort and beauty of a pair of Nike shoes for several years.
