Well, there’s no need to worry anymore, because with this trick you can restore your shoes to their original look!
A “miracle worker” on Twitter has found the perfect solution, and it’s super simple!

These before and after pictures of her sneakers are pretty amazing, which she seemed to think as well. She captioned them with “I am a miracle worker”, which she definitely is! People went crazy when they saw her tweet and desperately wanted to know how she managed to clean her shoes like this. Luckily, @sarahtraceyy wanted everyone to be able to share in her euphoria, so she shared her method with the world.
This is how to do it:
All you need for this trick is baking soda, laundry detergent and baby powder. First, rinse any dirt off your shoes with water. Then, mix together one part baking soda and one and a half part laundry detergent. Scrub your shoes with this mixture using a toothbrush and then let them sit for a while. Rinse them again with water and put them in the washing machine. When you take them out again, sprinkle them with baby powder and let them dry. That’s all there is to it!
