Protect new canvas trainers by treating them with a stain and water repellent before you start wearing them.
Remove any dirt and stains as soon as they appear. Use a small bristle brush or a toothbrush together with washing-up liquid and cold water. Work in circular motions, scrubbing gently. Repeat as needed. Rinse with cold water but avoid soaking the shoe. Allow to air dry in a well-ventilated area.
Wash the laces separately by soaking in soapy water.
