Back - 2 -School season is here. How are you feeling about it? Your wallet may be feeling it already as parents, on average, will spend about $500 on Back-2-School shopping, according to a yearly survey... Yikes! Wouldn't that money be better spent saving for college? In this blog, we're going to show you how to eliminate the need for new back to school sneakers using our Sneaker Magic. A 3lb container cleans over 12 pairs of sneakers and can help families save over $700 throughout the years because this product never goes bad or loses its power. Make shoes like new again.
We think that's a better deal. Teach your kids one of the most important lessons in life - the importance of saving money.
There's two posts videos below to show you how to do it plus step by step instructions. Take your pick!

How to Clean Sneakers & Canvas Shoes Safely, Effectively and Without Bleach
1. Comb the house for all your dirty pairs of sneakers or canvas shoes
Break out your dirty sneakers and take the laces off. You'll wash them in the same bucket but not laced on the shoe.
2. Get your tools ready!
- Sneaker Magic: Organic Sneaker & Canvas shoe cleaner
- 1 tall bucket
- 1 ruler to stir
- dirty sneaks
You'll need a tall bucket and Wash Safe's premium, organic sneaker cleaner, Sneaker Magic. Measure shoes in the bucket to see how high you'll need to fill the water.
3. Add powder solution to bucket
For every pair of sneakers you'll clean, you will use 4 ounces of Sneaker Magic (or 1 scoop). Scoop comes inside and each 3lb container has 48 ounces - so enough to clean 12 pairs
4. Fill bucket with hot water
Bring bucket over to the sink and fill with hot water. If children are cleaning sneakers, they should be supervised by an adult and an adult should do this step. Fill to the point where sneakers would be submerged. Be careful carrying bucket.
*This is very important* ... in order to clean shoes and get a dramatic before and after, you'll need to stir the solution for 15 minutes consistently to activate the powder. This is why it makes a great family project - you can all take turns.
5. Submerge sneakers and laces under water
Point shoes toes down and submerge under water for 2 hours. After 2 hours, check on sneakers and give them a little scrubbing with the brush included if they need it in certain areas. Next, flip them so they are heels down. You can also put rocks on top of them to ensure they stay completely under water.
Pull sneakers out the bucket and let them sit in the sun to dry. These sneakers are going to look even better and brighter once they are dry thanks to Sneaker Magic.
