    Hello all,

    I've never really owned purely white trainers before.. and I've just bought a nice pair of K-Swiss.. all rubber/leather or whatever.

    What can you do to keep them looking clean? Do you clean them with something, or just put them in the washer?

    Thanks :)

    Just do what us council estate kids had done to our Green Flash - quick splash of emulsion and they're as good as new.

    Use L.O.C, made by Amway, it'll lift the crap right off them.

    I don't think it's in shops, Amway are an MLM company so you might have to track down a local rep. It's very good stuff though, works on anything.

    Whenever I get new shiney white trainers I always stamp on them lots to make them look less cackerish :p



    Tee hee hee!


    Only joking, I'm sure they're very nice! If they're rubber, surely they'll stay wiped fresh?! :p Leather = lots of leather cream and rain guard and you're sorted!

    Good luck! :D

    Try using CIF, cleans most household items back to white*

    *As long as they were originally white that is :p

    Snow works pretty well.

    If you have no snow, move to Siberia.
