The majority of running shoes are pretty expensive. And even though they receive a ton of wear and tear, there are certain tips and tricks that can help preserve them for as long as possible. A great tip for cleaning white running shoes? Scrub them with a paste made from baking soda and water before rinsing them and leaving them to dry outside. Today, we’re going to share another easy, super effective tip with you that will help your running shoes to look new again.

Over time, many running shoes will develop those creases on the top middle section. I always assumed there was nothing that could be done about those creases, but boy, was I wrong! Shantel De Bonsu took to Twitter to share her great hack for removing those creases. Here’s what you’ll need to remove creases from your running shoes:

Socks, old clothes, or tissue paper
Small towel or cloth
Hot water

Step 1: Stuff your shoe with the socks/old clothes or tissue paper to the point where you can’t see the crease anymore and when you press on the top of the shoe, it doesn’t move.

Step 2: Wet your small towel or cloth with hot water, then squeeze the water out so that it’s damp.

Step 3: Place your towel or cloth on top of the crease.

Step 4: Iron the towel or cloth with VIM but be sure to keep lifting the iron up or you’ll burn your shoe! How bad the crease is determines the time in which it will take to get rid of the crease.

After posting these tips and a coinciding video (which you can watch here), Shantel’s Twitter post began receiving a ton of attention! People started posting the before-and-after photos of their shoes, and the results are pretty impressive!
