Canvas slippers and espadrilles are our everyday allies. Learn how to clean espadrilles and keep them in good condition with this useful guide. We share some best ways to clean canvas shoes.

To better wash your canvas shoes, do not use the washing machine. The material is ruined and loses color. Lavalas by hand.

The canvas shoes, as well as the espadrilles, are very comfortable and useful for day to day. But as they are useful, they also become very dirty. Next, we will give you a series of tips that will serve to wash your espadrilles and do not ruin yourself. In fact, they will even look much better.


How to wash white or colored sneakers:

As a first step, there are some tips to keep in mind if the sneakers are white or colored, as the washing methods are different.

If your shoes are white then you can use baking soda mixed with vinegar. You put it with a brush and you will see that the spots will disappear and the white becomes even more white.

If your espadrilles are colored, it is best to wash them by hand following the following steps:

  1. Remove the laces to the shoes to wash them separately (since sometimes they have mud spots or the same use and we do not see them if they are placed in the slippers).
  2. Put the slippers in a bucket with cold water and powdered soap.
  3. Leave them to soak for a couple of hours.
  4. Pass a small brush (may even be an old toothbrush) for the most rebellious spots to remove them.
  5. If the stains persist, add a little baking soda and re-rub with the brush.
  6. Remove the slippers from the bucket and rinse them in the sink with cold water to remove soap scraps.
  7. Drain the excess water with your hand and allow to dry, preferably outside, in the shade, on a flat surface (do not hang them). Put newspaper inside while you let them dry.


How to clean jute espadrilles or rope sole:

To clean surface stains on this type of footwear:

  • Use a soft brush to remove dust from the surface.
  • With a harder brush, clean the soles to remove the mud.
  • If your espadrilles have spots of grease, put some talcum powder on the stained area and let it rest to absorb the fat. Then remove the talc with a soft brush.
  • For less rebellious stains, mix a little water and neutral soap in a bowl and gently wipe the cloth with a sponge.

As you can see, these delicate garments need special care but following our advice, your sneakers or espadrilles will stay radiant for longer.
