  • Magic eraser
  • Water
  • Bowl
  • Scrub brush
  • Toothbrush
  • Sole bright
  • Plastic wrap


Step 1

Fill a small bowl or container with water, then dip the magic eraser, and scrub the sole nicely to get rid of all the black marks and scruff. Once done scrubbing the sole and other parts of the shoe, grab an old toothbrush, then dip it into the sole bright, and apply the solution all over the sole until nicely covered.

Step 2

Next, wrap the whole sole with plastic wrap, then leave it in the sun with the sole facing up for about 30 to 40 minutes, and make sure not to leave it too long or the glue on the shoe will melt. After sitting in the sun, wash and scrub the sole clean under cold water, then repeat the session as needed until desired results, and you’re done!
