    How Do I Clean yellow stains from White Shoes?

    I was cleaning out my room today and I found bunch of white Air Forces, shelltoes, and k swiss', and they all are almost brand new. I haven't worn any of them in a long time. I was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the yellow stains from the bottom of the shoes.

    If anyone can help it is much appreciated. You will save the lives of some of my shoes.


    Thank You.

    I have found the best way to actually clean white shoes is with Soft Scrub cleaner and a small scrub brush. Just wet the shoes (in a bathtub or shower) and apply the Soft Scrub and scrub away. Takes a couple minutes a shoe to clean and then just let dry after you have rinsed off. I learned this while working at an athletic shoe store years back.



    As far as the bottoms, maybe let them sit in bleach for a while? (Just the bottoms, not the whole shoe)

    Try the Mr Clean Magic Eraser. That gets stains out of anything white.

    Also, you might want to try to NOT stand in the puddles in front of the toilet from now on.... LOL

    I'd think one of those bleach pen things would work well, as soaking them in a bleach solution might cause some damage if the concentration is too strong....

    The store 'Finish Line' has a cleaner that works wonders as well ($5)

    Yeah, by bottom I mean the sides of the bottom not the bottom soles. I just have practically new shoes that are in great condition except the sides of the bottom turned yellow because I never wore them.


    What do you guys think of using white wall cleaner?

    any type of cleanser will work well. I'd stay away or becareful of using a cleanser with alot of bleach. That will dry out and crack the leather, if the solution hit the leather at all. If you use a household cleanser I'd dilute it a bit with warm water.
    Btw, I'm a chick lol So it's not all men in here
