8. Brush a mix of hydrogen peroxide, water, and baking soda on your white shoes to get them looking brand spankin’ new.

There’s nothing like putting on a brand new pair of glowing white sneakers…until someone steps on your foot twelve seconds after walking outside. To get that feeling back, all you need to do is mix a tablespoon of baking soda, 1/2 tablespoon water, and 1/2 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide and rub the resulting paste all over your shoes. Add another layer and then let them sit in the sun for a few hours, or until the paste has hardened and cracked. Slap the soles together until all of the paste falls off and your white sneakers emerge like a beautiful butterfly. ✨ Learn more here.
