"Shoelaces, also called shoestrings, are a system commonly used to secure shoes, boots and other footwear.They typically consist of a pair of strings or cords, one for each shoe, finished off at both ends with stiff sections, known as aglets."
"The materials used for shoelaces vary according to the type of lace under construction. Typical fibers used for laces today include cotton, textured polyester, spun polyester, nylon, and polypropylene. The aglet, the hard plastic end of the shoelace that pushes through the eyelet in the shoe, is made of clear plastic."
1. SINK METHOD
Have the laces between your hands. Use regular hand soap or Rem's Shoe Cleaner if you're part of the team, put a good amount of solution between your hands, and just work the soap/cleaner into the laces. Twist and turn the laces, make sure you're lifting the dirt out of the laces by doing so. Rinse them thoroughly, wring it out the water and give it a huge squeeze, and wipe it through the microfiber towels to dry. Go over it again for great results.Don't do the water bottle and bleach/detergent method, a lot of time will be wasted.
2. WASHING MACHINE METHOD
From our customer's experience, if they don't want to do the first method (which we have used), is throw them in a laundry bag , or put them in a high sock and throw them in the washing machine. Don't put them in the dryer, and just hang them to dry. This is great for bulk cleaning too.
When you take the time to clean your shoelaces, it will improve the overall appearance of your shoes. We hope this helps, thank you for your reading!
