How To Care For Your Running Shoes
- Sep 04, 2017 -

I'm Nicki, and this is how to care for your running shoes. Alright, running shoes are quite expensive. They range upwards to 100 dollars, so the last thing I want you to do is throw these things in a washing machine where it can actually cause more damage and decrease the lifespan of your shoe. So, I'm going to show you a really simple technique that you can do once every other week, that will help increase the lifespan of your shoe, and is the best way to clean it. Alright, so, here's what I've got set up to clean my shoes: I've got a bucket with warm water, and I've already added a regular laundry detergent and baking soda. The baking soda's going to help take out any of that funkiness that you might have accumulated while you're running. So, I've got shoe, warm water. I've got cloth to clean the shoe, and I've got newspaper that's going to help me dry the shoe. Alright, so, what I want to do, take the shoe, I'm going to get it nice and wet, soak it up in there. And then, just take the sponge, and I'm really just going to clean around -- clean around the soles, clean any grime out from in here. And then, rinse it off thoroughly. And, once I've finished rinsing it off, I'm going to take newspaper -- and you want to make sure you're using newspaper. Notebook paper, anything like that, really doesn't cut it because the newspaper absorbs more moisture. So, I'm going to take newspaper, make sure I get it all the way up into the toe, just fill it up as much as I can, sticking out of the top there, and just get it nice and firm in the form of the inside of the shoe. If you're doing this in the summertime, just leave it outside -- somewhere it can get fresh air -- and it'll take a couple of hours to dry.
