how to clean white canvas shoes

Owning white canvas shoes might be a cool idea due to their simplistic and elegant design, but cleaning and taking care of them might be harder than you imagine.

White canvas shoes tend to get dirty or turn yellow easily, which is why you need to know how to clean white canvas shoes quickly and properly. Stick around to know the answer!

I. Cleaning Kit Needed And Their Function

  • Shoe Cleaner
  • Apron
  • Premium Brush
  • Medium Brush
  • Standard Brush
  • Small Brush or Toothbrush 
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Shoe Tree
  • Container/Pan

II. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes

1. Prepare your white canvas shoes that are ready to be cleaned:

A pair of white canvas shoes that need to be freshened up. 

2. Prepare the cleaning kits needed to clean your white canvas shoes:

Prepare the Shoe Cleaner, apron, Premium Brush, Medium Brush, Standard Brush, Small Brush, Microfiber Cloth, 2 pieces of Shoe Tree, and a container to store water and Shoe Perfume. 

3. Remove the laces from your white canvas shoes

It’s essential to remove the laces from your white canvas shoes before starting the cleaning process. Laces need to be cleaned separately. You can do this by soaking them inside a bucket of water that has been mixed with the shoe cleaner detergent.  

4. Insert the shoe tree in your canvas shoes:

This is an essential step, as a Shoetree will be important to maintain the shape of your canvas shoes when they’re being washed. However, make sure to remove the insole before inserting a shoe tree. Don’t force it if the insole can’t be removed, though. 

5. Dry Clean Your Canvas Shoes

Before proceeding to clean your canvas shoes with water, you really need to dry clean your shoes first. To do this, you can use a Premium Brush or small brush to get rid of loose dust or dirt. I love to do this step before cleaning my shoes with water, as it can help reduce the dirt before deep-cleaning them.  

6. Wash the Outsole and Midsole of Your Canvas Shoes

During this cleaning stage, you can use a Standard Brush. Make sure to use all your strength when cleaning the outsole, as it’s naturally the dirtiest part of a shoe.

As soon as you have finished cleaning the outsole, you can proceed by cleaning the midsole with a Medium Brush. This time, patience and diligence are needed, as there will be a lot of dirty spots that are hard to clean.

Never resist from repeating the cleaning process if your suede shoes are still dirty.

7. Wash the Upper Part of Your Canvas Shoes

To clean the upper part of your canvas shoes, I will definitely use a Premium Brush, as it’ll be soft enough to not damage your shoes. Canvas are quite sensitive, and that’s the reason why you shouldn’t use a standard brush to clean the upper part of your shoes.

If you detect any stains left, make sure to repeat the process until you achieve a satisfactory result.

8. Wash the Inner Part of Your Canvas Shoes

Use a small brush to clean the inner part of your shoes that is narrow and small. Shortly after, clean it with a microfiber cloth. You can actually use a Premium Brush to clean this section.

But if you have a large hand like me, a small brush or toothbrush would be a better option. 

9. Detailing

Use a microfiber cloth to clean the details on your shoes that are still dirty. As an alternative, wet tissue can also be used. However, I personally love to use a cloth better than a tissue, as it’s more effective to absorb dirt and water. 

10. Drying Process

Leave your shoes in front of a fan and leave them for around 1-2 hours. 

III. Alternative Method To Clean White Canvas Shoes

a. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes With Toothpaste?

How to Clean Shoes with Toothpaste: 10 Steps (with Pictures)

If you’re creative enough, you can use many things to clean your white canvas shoes, even with toothpaste! However, I recommend non-gel toothpaste (white would be fine, as we’re cleaning white canvas shoes this time around). Make sure to prepare a soft toothbrush as well. 

After all the items are ready, you can start to put the toothpaste on your old toothbrush. Then, brush your shoes in a circular motion. You can focus on the part with stains or sections that turned yellow, but I personally love cleaning all parts of my shoes.

After all the necessary sections are covered with toothpaste, you can leave your shoes for about 10 minutes before rinsing them with clean water. This cleaning process might take a while, so it might not be the best method for those of you who’re looking to clean your white canvas shoes quickly. 

b. Cleaning White Canvas Shoes With A Washing Machine?

How to Clean White Canvas Shoes | Washing & Cleaning Tips

Some shoes aren’t compatible to be washed inside a washing machine, but you shouldn’t worry about that when you have a pair of canvas shoes. They are usually made from strong materials that can withstand any cleaning machine.

If you own a washing machine (or would like to go rent one in nearby), you might want to follow these simple steps that I have made just for you:

  • Remove the laces from your white canvas shoes, then insert them inside a mesh bag. If you have spare time, I suggest you clean your laces manually.
  • Insert your white canvas shoes inside another mesh bag, then place it inside the washing machine. 
  • Set your washing machine correctly. Make sure to use slow mode and use cold water.
  • Wait until the washing machine finishes its job.
  • If your white canvas shoes are still wet, leave them for a while before inserting your laces back on

c. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes With Hydrogen Peroxide?


I can’t seem to run out of ideas to answer the question of how to clean white canvas shoes. Another creative way in cleaning your precious shoes is by using hydrogen peroxide.

As a matter of fact, hydrogen peroxide can act as more than a cleaner. In addition to removing stains on the surface of your shoes, it will disinfect your shoes from bacteria and viruses as well! For white canvas shoes, hydrogen peroxide is quite effective in making your shoes look bright once more.

I really love using hydrogen peroxide to clean my white canvas shoes that turned yellow. If you want to use this item, then read these steps carefully:

  • While hydrogen peroxide is effective in cleaning white canvas shoes, it can’t do the job by itself. Therefore, you’ll need to mix it with baking soda. 
  • Prepare an old toothbrush or a soft brush that won’t damage your shoes
  • Apply the mixture on your brush and start scrubbing
  • Don’t rinse the mixture immediately. Make sure to wait for around 30 minutes to let the mixture do their job
  • Rinse your shoes and dry them!

d. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes With Baking Soda?

How to Clean White Shoes (No Matter the Material)

Previously, I have mentioned a trick to clean white canvas shoes with hydrogen peroxide that involves mixing it with baking soda.

But if you don’t own hydrogen peroxide, you might be glad to learn that baking soda can be used to clean white canvas shoes on its own without its assistance (although using them as a combination would do wonders for your dirty white canvas shoes).

Here’s how to clean them properly!

  • Make a mixture of baking soda inside a bucket of warm water. You might need to stir it until a paste is formed 
  • Apply the paste on a soft brush
  • Gently scrub the mixture in a circular motion. Make sure to cover the stains and dirty sections of your shoes. I personally love to cover the whole part of the shoes, but it’s down to a matter of preference. 
  • Leave your shoes for around 30 minutes before rinsing them with water to get rid of the paste and stains. I love to use a soft sponge to help absorb water quickly
  • Leave your shoes once more to air-dry them. 

e. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes With Bleach?

how to clean white canvas shoes

Now let’s get into the juicy part: how to clean white canvas shoes with bleach? As I’ve mentioned before, bleach might be the most effective product to clean your white canvas shoes that turned yellow.

I love using bleach, but attention to detail is the most important thing here, as bleach can damage your arms and shoes at the same time. Before you proceed to clean your white canvas shoes with bleach, make sure to use gloves.

  • Use a small amount of bleach. I learned from my own experience that too much bleach can damage your shoes instead of cleaning them. Mix it inside a bucket of water in a five-to-one ratio of water to bleach. 
  • On a previous occasion, I suggested the use of a soft brush. However, bleach works better when applied to a microfiber cloth. So, dip the cloth inside the mixture and start cleaning!
  • After all the necessary parts are covered, you’ll need to wait for a while before removing the mixture and stains at the same time. 
  • Dry your shoes before storing or using them once more. 

IV. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes Quickly?

How to Clean White Canvas Shoes | Who What Wear

Cleaning a dirty pair of white canvas shoes might require some time and effort, especially when you have a pair that has turned yellow or has tough stains. There’s no guarantee that cleaning your white canvas shoes quickly might get rid of all the dirt and stains. But sometimes, time is of the essence.

Therefore, I recommend you use a Magic Eraser. If you own one, all you need to do is to get your shoes wet by wiping them with wet tissues. Then, apply the Magic Eraser to get rid of the dirt and stains!

From my own experience, it might work when you’re dealing with light stains, but I’ve no guarantee that it can clean a pair of really dirty white canvas shoes. 

V. How To Clean White Canvas Shoes That Turned Yellow?

When you own a pair of white shoes, stains aren’t the only problem that you’ll be dealing with. As a matter of fact, there are many cases in which your white canvas shoes will turn yellow. That’s the reason why you should learn tricks to deal with it.

Fortunately, homemade products can be used to clean white canvas shoes that turned yellow, like bleach, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide. But from my experience, bleach is probably the best product to clean your white shoes that turned yellow.

I really love using bleach, but I need to warn you that it must be used carefully in order to prevent any damage (both to your shoes and to your hands). 

VI. Cleaning Solution For Any Specific Stains On White Canvas Shoes

1. Mud and Dirt

Step #1: Prepare your cleaning materials

I always do this to make sure I get all the necessary kits. Some things I take to clean mud and dirt from white canvas shoes are:

  • An old toothbrush or a small brush (I prefer a toothbrush!)
  • Lukewarm water in a bowl
  • Mil dish soap
  • Some paper towels or a clean microfiber cloth
  • A toothpick (optional, but prepare it, just in case!)

Step #2: Get rid of the dirt and mud

To begin with, I’ll prepare my dirty shoes and gently tap off the dirt. If you get wet mud, let it dry first. It’ll make it easier to knock them off.

Step #3: Make a gentle cleaner

Take a bowl of lukewarm water you’ve prepared before, then add a few drops of mild dish soap to prepare a cleaning solution. I love to soak a microfiber cloth into the solution and squeeze it to create bubbles.

Step #4: Scrub scrub!

After that, scrub the dirt using a soft brush or an old toothbrush you’ve dipped into the soapy solution. If you ask me, I prefer the toothbrush as it can easily reach the narrow spots in my shoes.

Step #5: Rinse off the soap

Once I am satisfied with the results, I usually rinse off the soap under running tap water. But, if you want to save water, you can simply follow my trick to use a dampening cloth to wipe the bubbles.

I recommend repeating the cleaning and rinsing procedures in case you spot stubborn stains. Use a toothpick to get into crevices, if needed.

Step #6: Dry the shoes

With some paper towels, blot excess water in your insoles and outsoles. If you don’t have them, I generally take another dry, clean cloth to wipe them off. After that, stuff old newspapers inside the shoes to maintain their shape and prevent them from getting stinky!

2. Grass Stains

Step #1: Let’s prepare the materials!

Here’s a list of what you need to clean your dirty white canvas shoes with grass stains:

  • Non-gel, non-whitening toothpaste
  • A soft bristle brush or an old toothbrush
  • Cold water
  • A clean microfiber cloth
  • Shoe trees

Step #2: Start by tapping off the dirt

First thing first, you better grab your soft bristle brush and gently remove the surface dirt. This will help shorten the cleaning time. Also, my tip is to take off your insoles and wash them separately, following the same procedure.

Step #3: It’s cleaning time!

Next, squeeze a generous amount of toothpaste on your old toothbrush. But it depends on how stubborn the stains you get on the shoes. I recommend starting off small and adding more if you need it.

After that, gently scrub the stained area using a circular motion to lift off the dirt. Try to give a bit of pressure. Trust me, it works great!

Step #4: Wait for the stains to fade

Once you think you’ve scrubbed the stained area, let the toothpaste sit for around 10-15 minutes. I’d advise you to wait longer, for like 30 minutes, if you get stubborn stains.

Step #5: Rinse and dry the shoes

The last step is rinsing and drying. Take another clean cloth and dampen it with cold water. Then, remove the toothpaste. I generally also rinse them under running water, but it takes time.

So, you better use the first tip to save your energy. And finally, dry them under sunlight or set up a fan to speed up the process.

3. Oil Stains

Step #1: Gather your essentials

Get down to the list of essentials you must gather to clean your oil-stained white canvas shoes:

  • Cornstarch
  • Some paper towels
  • A soft bristle brush
  • A clean cloth

Step #2: Assess the stains

Here’s the thing. I always begin by assessing the extent of the oil stains. It helps in determining how much starch I need to remove the dirt. Then, I’ll take a clean paper towel to blot excess oil so it won’t spread.

Step #3: Grab the cornstarch

Next, I get a bowl of cornstarch from my pantry to sprinkle it on my dirty, witty shoes. When sprinkling, focus on the stained area and press the starch gently to let it thoroughly absorb the oil.

Step #4: Give it some time

Now, I’ll simply wait for the magic of cornstarch work. I’ll give around 30 minutes to provide the lifting time for the stains to fade.

Step #5: Brush and shake

After some time, prepare a soft bristle brush and carefully brush away the oil-infused cornstarch. I also tap off the shoes to remove excess starch, especially those that generally fall on the insoles during sprinkling.

Step #6: Spot clean and dry

To ensure the starch and stains are removed, I always add this step to the procedure. I’ll prepare a mixture of vinegar and water with a 1:1 ratio. Then, dip a clean cloth or paper towel to wipe the previously stained area.

And lastly, I’ll air dry the shoes for several hours or even a day to make sure they dry properly.

4. Blood Stains

Step #1: Arrange cleaning kits

To clean your blood-stained white canvas shoes, you will need the following items:

  • A butter knife
  • 3% hydrogen peroxide solution
  • An old toothbrush
  • A bowl
  • Hand gloves

Step #2: Take a look at the damage

The first thing to do is do the assessment. I always ask myself, is the blood stain fresh or dried? If it’s dry, I’ll immediately but gently scrape off any crusty bits with a butter knife.

Step #3: Prepare hydrogen peroxide solution

Here’s the deal and my secret win-win solution: the hydrogen peroxide! It helps break down blood protein, making the stain fade quickly. To tackle stubborn blood stains, I’ll generally pour a small amount of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution into a clean bowl. Make sure you wear hand gloves since it is a harsh chemical. Then, I’ll dip my old toothbrush into the solution.

Step #4: Scrubbing the stain away

After dipping, I’ll scrub the stained area gently with my hydrogen peroxide-infused toothbrush. Please take note not to oversaturate the canvas. Scrub it carefully using a circular motion.

Step #5: Rinse and Air Dry

A few last steps are rinsing the shoes under cold running water. You can do this while gently scrubbing the stained area with your hands wrapped in gloves. Once the stain is completely gone, air dries the shoes. But I love to set up a fan to accelerate drying. And there you have it!

5. Ink Stains

how to clean white canvas shoes

Step #1: Preparation

Ink stains are indeed annoying. But you can clean them up using the following tools and materials:

  • Hairspray (with a high alcohol content)
  • Paper towel
  • A clean cloth
  • Cold water

Step #2: Check on the stains

To ensure you’ve chosen the right method, I advise you to check on the stains. If they are fresh, you are lucky as they are easier to clean. You can simply grab a paper towel and blot the excess to avoid spreading ink.

Step #3: Use the hairspray

Take your high-alcohol hairspray, then spritz a bit of it directly onto the stained area. If you don’t have one with high alcohol content, I recommend opting for rubbing alcohol instead and following the same steps.

Step #4: Blot and rub

After spraying, I’ll grab a clean cloth to blot the stain. If the ink stain doesn’t budge, I usually rub the stained area in a circular motion. But please be gentle to avoid damage!

Step #5: Rinse and dry

Once I’m satisfied with the stain’s progress, I’ll rinse the ink stains with cold water. I usually opt for tap water. However, you can use a dampened cloth and wipe it away. Then, I’ll give some time for the shoes to air dry.

6. Coffee and Food Spills

Step #1: Arrange your essentials

To try this simple guide to remove coffee and food spills from your precious white canvas shoes, you’ll require:

  • An old toothbrush
  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Water
  • A bowl
  • A clean cloth

Step #2: Dry brush the stains

Before cleaning, you’ll need to scrub off the loose coffee or food residue on your shoe’s surface. To do this, I usually take my old toothbrush and gently brush it away.

Step #3: Create a cleaning paste

Now, I’ll mix baking soda paste with white vinegar using a 1:1 ratio in a bowl. Don’t be surprised; it’ll fizz a bit! Make sure you get a toothpaste-like consistency to lift the stains effectively. I find this texture super useful!

Step #4: Apply the paste

Once you’ve made the paste, add it to the stained area using a wooden spoon or your old toothbrush. I personally will opt for a toothbrush as I can also gently scrub the area. After that, let it sit for approximately 10-15 minutes.

Step #5: Rinse and dry the shoes

After the waiting time, grab your damp cloth and wipe away the paste. I’ll keep doing this until I’m sure that the paste is completely gone. Then, I’ll give the shoes time to dry naturally. Trust me, don’t ever dare to use a hairdryer if you don’t want to get a yellowing canvas.

7. Makeup Stains

Step #1: Tools and materials preparation

You’ll need some cleaning materials and tools to tackle the makeup stains, including:

  • Baby oil (for liquidy, oily makeup)
  • An old toothbrush (for scrubbing and powdery makeup)
  • A clean cloth
  • Cotton balls
  • Cold water
  • Warm water (for powdery makeup)

Step #2: Blot, don’t rub!

First and foremost, you must gently blot the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel to wipe any excess makeup spills.

Step #3: Target the stain

I’ll say the cleaning steps for makeup spills depend on the types. For liquid makeup stains, I usually dab a bit of baby oil onto a cotton ball. Then, I carefully blot the stained area. This baby oil works best to break down the dirt and lift it away.

However, if you are dealing with powdery makeup, an old toothbrush will work the way. In my case, I’ll take an old toothbrush and dip it in warm water before gently scrubbing the stain using a circular motion. It works amazing to loosen the makeup particles while preserving the canvas.

Step #4: Rinse and dry

Once you’re sure the stains fade away, rinse the affected area with cold water. Then, let your shoe air dry naturally. I am strongly against using a hairdryer to dry the shoes, as it will cause discoloration.

8. Sweat Stains

Step #1: Let’s gather your cleaning kit items!

I always do it firsthand before cleaning. So, here’s a list of necessary items you need to quick clean that sweat:

  • A pack of baby wipes
  • A clean cloth or paper towels
  • A soft bristle brush

Step #2: Remove surface dirt

Before tackling the sweat stains, I’ll make sure to wipe off the surface dirt. You can use a soft bristle brush or simply a clean cloth.

Step #3: Wipe away sweat stains

And here’s the gameplay! I’ll take a baby wipe and clean the sweat stains on my canvas shoes. BUT! The number of baby wipe sheets depends on how stubborn the stains are. Taking one at a time is better. I also use a bit of pressure to ensure the stains are well-lifted.

Step #4: Let them air out

To finish the job, I’ll incorporate another clean cloth to remove excess moisture from the shoes. Then, I provide some time for the canvas shoes to air out for a while. Don’t store them wet, as it can lead to odor and moldy issues.

9. Paint Splatters

Step #1: Materials you need

First of all, you will need some items to clean up the mess of paint splatters on your white canvas shoes. Among them are:

  • Cotton balls
  • A white eraser
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • A couple of toothbrushes
  • Warm water
  • Mild dish soap

Step #2: Scrape off the excess paint

If I have a wet paint mess on my shoes, I’ll dry them before scrapping them off. But if the stains on your canvas have dried, you can prepare an old toothbrush and gently scrape off any loose paint splatters.

Step #3: Attack with rubbing alcohol

After you’ve finished with those scraps, pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol onto a cotton ball until it damps. Then, dab it onto the affected area and rub it gently. I’ve been using rubbing alcohol for years because it’s a game-changer!

Step #4: Erase the residue

Next, grab your white eraser and rub it carefully over any remaining paint marks. Keep erasing until the canvas looks cleaner. It’s my secret recipe that works absolutely magic on my shoes!

Step #5: The final touch

To finish up the guide, prepare a solution of equal parts of mild dish soap and warm water. Then, take another clean toothbrush, dip it in the solution, and scrub the shoes gently. In my case, it helps remove any remaining residues and make the shoes look as good as new!

10. Tar Stains

Step #1: Cleaning kits items

I’ve cleaned a fair share of my canvas shoes and here are some materials you need to remove the mess of tar stains:

  • A plastic card
  • A bowl
  • Peanut butter
  • An old toothbrush
  • Warm water
  • Cold water
  • Mild detergent
  • Old newspapers

Step #2: Examine the mess

Take a closer look at the tar stain. If you have loose bits, I recommend taking a plastic card to scrape off the dirt gently.

Step #3: Grab your peanut butter

Well, it may shock you. But believe me! The oil in peanut butter works like magic in tackling tar stains on white canvas shoes. Just apply a dollop of peanut butter over the stain until the area is well-covered. Then, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

Step #4: Scrub with your toothbrush

After some time, take your old toothbrush and scrub the stained area with it gently. I will keep doing it until the stain starts fading away.

Step #5: Rinse the peanut butter

Clean the peanut butter by rinsing it with warm water. I recommend letting the water flow, as soaking can dissolve the peanut and make it spread on other parts of your shoes.

Step #6: Wash and dry

Finally, prepare a cleaning solution to wash the residue by adding a 1:1 ratio of cold water and mild dish soap in a bowl. Then, give your white canvas shoes a good wash. Next, air dry the shoes and, afterward, stuff them with old newspapers to absorb the moisture and keep them in shape.
