Cleaning Canvas Shoes

Does anyone have any ideas for how I can clean a pair of beige colored canvas espadrilles? Many thanks for helping me savage these shoes I love to wear.

Try an ''oxy" wash using a tooth brush to clean it with. Stay away from anything soapy, it will attract dirt. If they are really bad you may have to repeat it. (07/09/2009)

Place them in a nylon mesh zippered bag, wash in bucket of Clear Dawn, warm, not hot, water, TINY amt. bleach, Borax, let sit overnight, after scrubbing gently the dirtiest spots with an old toothbrush. Next day, rinse 15 minutes in cool water, and drip dry in bag on outside sunny clothesline, shoe insides facing sun! Do this once every month and you'll have nice shoes! God bless. : ) (07/09/2009)

I have washed canvas shoes, flip flops, and terry cloth flip flop slippers in my washing machine using the delicate cycle and a mild detergent, such as Woolite. (07/11/2009)

I keep a large old pillowcase just for the purpose of washing canvas (or synthetic) shoes, handbags, caps, soft toys, etc. just pop them in, fasten with a safety pin and wash in the washing machine on a cold wash with a gentle cycle. Sometimes I use two pillowcases full of stuff so with one cycle I wash a lot! (07/12/2009)

I always spray all my light colored "fabric" shoes with a Scotch guard type product. You can then practically wipe them clean. I also do the same for the neck/collar of raincoats and the like. Saves in the long run. Won't help with your problem now but might help prevent happening in the future. (01/11/2010)
