White shoes are all in fashion lately specially with the revival of the street/sports wear, white shoes totally help complete the look.
But before it became a trend, I’ve been wearing my beloved white slip-on canvas shoes by Vans. Mainly because it’s comfortable and goes well with my outfits at work. (I was then a make-up teacher wearing white, gray, or black outfits)
Sadly, like all white shoes, it has succumbed to dirt and grime. I tried to clean it and used baking soda before to restore its condition but didn’t work. I tried several shoe cleaners for whites, but wasn’t successful.
Recently, I saw a post in Facebook to use tissue paper to whiten a yellowed canvas vans. At this point, I was desperate enough to try anything. I said to myself, “what the heck, I have nothing to lose.” Yes, I was that desperate.
It’s dirty, grimy, and yellow. I have not used this pair for a long time because of its state.
