i purchase new white shoes which my daughter borrowed without asking, and in a weekend they look like they were 5 years old. I have tried everything I know, it’s like they are ruined forever. If anyone had any ideas to clean white shoes I would sure appreciate your help. Thank you

    Use white (not gel) toothpaste and a damp toothbrush (your daughters)  . A dab of toothpaste on the toothbrush and gently brush. I use it to clean shoes I sell on Ebay. Also works on copper, brass, gold, silver, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything.

    Try a magic eraser - I think the dollar store version works as well as the name brand!

    Use the Magic Eraser to buff out any scuffs, then take a damp toothbrush covered in dove soap and use it to scrub the shoe in small, circular motions. Use paper towels to clean off excess moisture from the inside and outside of the shoes.

    Wipe them down good. Use while shoe polish.

    The magic eraser products work wonders! I would spot treat the bad areas first, then go back over the entire shoe using small circular motions. I just cleaned a pair of off-white shoes that look beat up at the end of every summer, and I bring them right back to beautiful - and this is the 3rd year! White paste toothpaste works as well, but the eraser is much faster and less work!

    Well..I saved my son's white golf shoes that were horrible and dirty and nothing would get them white...I used Lysol wipes....the Dual Action Wipes....citrus scent...and those shoes looked like they were absolutely new....it was amazing...
    i also found that these wipes clean my leather sofas so easily removing all dirt build-up.....once clean the sofa can get rubbed down with conditioner if needed but I have not had to do that at all.. the leathe ris still in perfect shape!
