White and/or off-white sandals are an essential part of a summer wardrobe. They pair beautifully with navy, pastels, pink, red, tan, and yellow. For those who don’t wear bright-brights and optic white, this year’s selection of sandals actually includes a ton of off-white sandals — joy! Now, your cream tees and muted garments can have a versatile friend too. For those who don’t understand why this is amazing, have you ever put an optic white sandal on with an off-white t-shirt? It looks, well, off, and makes the muted tee look dirty. Or, have you ever paired off-white sandals with a bright white tee? The whiteness of the tee makes the shoes look dirty in this scenario. I think you get it.

How To Clean White Shoes

I know some of you hesitate to purchase white or off-white sandals because of how quickly they could become stained or ruined. Not to worry, my stylish friend, I got you. First of all, you need to protect your white sandals with a leather protectant spray while they are brand new and unworn. I cannot recommend this enough. This will make your shoe last ten times longer. Not one shoe of mine hits the road without its protective silicone coat. I personally use Kiwi Boot protector.

To apply, I first lay down some plastic or some cardboard on my outdoor balcony and set my white sandals on it. Then, I spray over them quickly at a few different angles, with an emphasis on the toe and heel area since they get most scuffed from wear. Twenty-four hours later, I spray them again. Make sure you read the full directions on the can before applying the spray, and don’t over-spray and soak the shoe. Depending on how much you wear your sandals, you will want to re-spray them a couple of times a year.

Once protected, you rarely have to clean your white shoes. Usually, a moist white cloth will get off superficial dirt and scuffs. If you need something stronger, here are the items I use for cleaning white leather shoes:

Both saddle soap and leather lotion have instructions on their containers. As for Bon Ami, just a dab of Bon Ami on a moist white cloth will do the trick.
