    Continue reading as we explain everything step-by-step in this guide. In the end, we’re also sharing other methods that have worked for us every time.

    Cleaning your Yeezys to keep them looking fresh and new is simple. Here are the five easy steps to do it:

    Step 1: Prepare Your Cleaning Solution

    You should always start by gathering all the ingredients you will need to make a cleaning solution. The main ingredient in this method is mild laundry detergent soap. 

    In addition to it, get the following:

    • Lukewarm water
    • A bowl
    • A brush
    • Soft cloth
    • Spoon

    After this, pour warm water into the bowl and mix some mild laundry detergent. Then, use the spoon to stir the cleaning solution.

    Step 2: Remove Excess Dirt

    After making the cleaning solution, most people immediately start applying it to the shoes. That’s wrong. We recommend gently brushing off any loose dirt or debris from your Yeezys first.

    For this, you can use a soft-bristled brush or a dry cloth.

    Important: Never try to forcefully scrub the dirt. Always be gentle, or else you will see scratches everywhere on your shoes.

    Step 3: Apply the Solution and Clean

    In the next step, we suggest using a spare toothbrush. Dip it into the detergent solution and gently scrub the shoes.

    Here, you should focus on particularly dirty areas. Still, be gentle to avoid damaging the material.

    Step 4: Wipe Down and Rinse

    After scrubbing, the next step is to take a soft cloth and moisten it. You will be using this damp cloth to wipe down the shoes.

    It’s a crucial step because it will remove any soap residue. 

    Let us remind you that if you skip this step, the soapy residues will ruin the appearance of your Yeezy shoes. In most cases, stain patches start to appear. Even if you don’t see any patches, the shoe material will start to degrade due to the residues. 

    Many people ask us if there’s an alternative to damp cloth. Well, you can also rinse your shoes under running water. However, the water must be at a low pressure.

    Step 5: Air Dry

    The last step is drying your Yeezys. Never put them in a dryer. Instead, we suggest letting them air dry at room temperature. You can put shoes at the following spots:

    • Near the east-facing window
    • Under the awn
    • Any area without direct sunlight or heat sources.

    In most cases, 20 minutes is enough to dry the Yeezy shoes. 

    That’s it!
