White sandals, we all love them, and they are the definition of summer. Cute summer dresses, days out at the beach, but they can be a headache to keep clean. I have spent hours searching how to clean these jeweled sandals. I get a lot of emails from ladies asking me, 'How to clean white sandals? I have found a great product that works well.
Depending on how dirty your sandals are will depend on how much elbow grease is needed. I suggest always wiping them over each time you wear them to help cut down on the scrubbing!
How to Clean White Sandals
I tried all sorts of household products without much success. I enlisted my mum's help (the British spelling; since I am originally from the UK) to find a solution. Lucky for me my mum loves helping me out with jobs like these.
Off to the supermarket, we went to check out the cleaning products. Now the white sandals I used, as you can see from my pictures, are pretty dirty. Not to leave my dad out of the investigations, I had asked him to help me in the garden the week before, and yep you guessed it, I had my white sandals on - in a bid to get them as dirty as I could.
We had settled on a product called Bar Keeper Friend. I have never used this product before. When we got home, we mixed the powder into a paste with water and applied it with a sponge, and scrubbed the sandals (or rather, I watched and took photos while my mum did the scrubbing).
Within a few minutes, we could see the shoes slowly coming back to a bright white. It took quite a bit of elbow grease as they were filthy, but it eventually did the trick.
