Windbreaker jackets are great to wear if you are a person who likes going camping or doing any outdoor activities. They are also worn by people who are just looking for a casual fit. While windbreaker jackets are nice and comfortable, they can be somewhat complicated to clean. This is because they are made differently compared to your average jacket. In this article, I will show you how to wash a windbreaker jacket the right way.

 

Can you wash windbreakers?

You can wash windbreaker jackets, but you have to do it in a slightly different way because they can be a bit complicated to clean. But below I will show you the right ways on how to wash a windbreaker jacket.

 

 

How to wash a windbreaker jacket

There are two different ways to clean a dirty windbreaker jacket. If your jacket is not all that dirty but you still want to clean it, all you have to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth, then air dry them. Doing this will definitely make your windbreaker jacket cleaner than before.

While this is a great tip to clean these types of jackets you still may need a different way to deep clean them.

When deep cleaning a windbreaker jacket you have to make sure that you only do it if the jacket is badly stained.  To deep clean the jacket, the first thing you should do is to place the jacket flat on a surface. The next thing you need to do is to get a detergent that won’t damage the jacket. It’s best to use detergents that don’t contain any chlorine in them. Now dab a piece of cloth into the detergent and use it to rub the stains on the jacket in a circular motion. After doing this leave the detergent on the jacket for 10 minutes.

Place the windbreaker jacket in a lingerie bag then place it inside the washer (use the same detergent to wash it). After washing, let the jacket air dry.

While this method may work for almost any stain, you may not get the same results if you had bloodstains on your jacket. Now the reason why you may have blood stains is that you probably injured yourself on accident while you had the jacket on. To wash the blood stain from your windbreaker jacket you just need to do everything I mentioned above except instead of using detergent to clean the stains, use hydrogen peroxide.

Now I am going to show you the steps needed to clean your bamboo pillows

 

Steps 1 Wash the pillowcases

 This step is very easy, all you have to do is remove the bamboo pillowcases from the pillows. Then place them In the washer. Make sure to wash the bamboo pillowcases with warm water (not hot or cold).

 

Step 2 Dry the pillowcases

When drying these types of pillowcases you should air dry them instead of using a dryer. This is because the heat from the dryer will damage the pillowcase. When air drying the pillowcases you should place them on a hanger rock and put them somewhere where there is a lot of air.

 

Step 3 Wash the pillows

There are two methods you can use to wash your pillows, the squeezing method, and the soaking method. For the first method, you need to get a large bucket filled with warm water and add 5tbsp of detergent. Make sure to use a detergent that doesn’t have any harsh chemicals in it. Now place the pillow inside the bucket and squeeze it by pressing into it. Keep pressing/squeezing the pillows until both of them are fully clean.

 

For the second method, you need to place the pillow inside a large bucket filled with warm water and then add 5tbsp of detergent into it. Now place the pillow inside the bucket.

Step 1 Remove dust from the baseboards

There are a couple of ways you can remove dust from baseboards. The first way is to use an extendable duster to clean the baseboard. An extendable dust cleaner is really good because it can remove any dust from almost any surface. Another way to remove dust from your baseboard is to use a vacuum. The best vacuum to use is one that can have parts added to it. So if you have a vacuum that has a tube-like attachment then use it to suck up the dust from your baseboards. If you don’t have an extendable duster or vacuum with attachments then you can use a big cleaning towel to remove the dust. If you want to clean your baseboard with a towel without bending over then just use one of your legs to navigate the towel over the areas on the baseboard that you want to clean.

 

Step 2 Make the baseboard cleaning solution

When it’s time to deep clean your baseboards you can either make your own baseboard cleaning solution spray or just use a bucket of warm water. For the second method, all you have to do is get a bucket (half full) with warm water and add 1-2tbs spoon of dish soap into it, preferably dawn dish soap. For the first method, you need to get a spray bottle filled halfway up with warm water. Then add 1 tsp of dawn dish soap and 1/2 – 1 cup of vinegar into it, then shake. Now spray the mixture all over the baseboards.

Dip the mop inside the bucket of water or spray the baseboard cleaner all over the baseboard (make sure the mop is damp). THen use the mop to clean everywhere on the baseboards. Make sure you clean the hard-to-reach areas. Now for the second method, you need to follow my instructions carefully.

THen use 1-3 elastic bands to hold the cloth on the broom so that it won’t fall off. Now spray the baseboard cleaner all over the baseboard or dip the tip of the broom inside the bucket of water then use it to wipe down the baseboards. Make sure to clean every baseboard in the house such as the ones in your room, bathroom, on the stairs, etc.

2. Baking Soda and Vinegar

Borax is an amazing household product because it can be used for both laundry purposes and cleaning. There are two ways in which you can clean your shower tiles with borax. The first method is to just use borax and the other method includes hydrogen peroxide.

To clean your shower tiles with borax, just pour it all over the tiles in your shower and let it sit there for 6 hours. After that just add some warm water and use a brush or a clean spare broom to wash the tiles. Be sure to wash the shower wall tiles first then work your way to the floor tiles.

That was the first method. For the second method, you need to mix borax with equal parts hydrogen peroxide in a medium-sized container filled 1/4 to halfway up with warm water.  Make sure that there is enough borax and hydrogen peroxide in the water to make it somewhat thick. Now dip a cleaning brush or a clean spare broom into the mixture and use it to clean the shower wall tiles and then the floor tiles. Leave the mixture on the tiles for a couple of hours.  Then use warm water to rinse off the shower tiles.

 

4. Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda

Mix together equal parts baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle. Now spray the shower tiles and let the mixture sit on them for 45 minutes. Now rinse the tiles with warm water.

Doing this will get rid of any mold and mildew that was on the tiles. This is also a great way to clean your tile grouts as well.

 

5. Bleach

Using bleach to clean shower tiles is very effective even though it isn’t the most recommended method. The reason why it isn’t recommended is that bleach is a very harsh chemical. It can irritate your eyes, skin and the smell is also very strong. When using bleach you have to wear gloves, a mask, and goggles.

Now not because it isn’t the most recommended doesn’t mean you can’t use it. You can use Oxi clean liquid stain remover as a bleach substitute. It still has bleach in it but not as much as regular bleach products.

It is also great for cleaning shower tiles without scrubbing too hard. To clean your shower tiles with bleach the first thing you need to do is spray the bleach all over the tiles in your shower (make sure you are wearing gloves and a mask). Allow the bleach to sit on the tiles for 20 minutes. Now rinse off the tiles with warm water. After rinsing the tiles use a dry cloth to wipe away the water. Remember to air the bathroom out whenever you use any bleach products.

Above I showed you how to clean your shower tiles with oxi clean bleach. Now I will show you how to clean them with chlorine bleach.

When using chlorine bleach or any other bleach products be sure to wear gloves, goggles(or any other protective eyewear), and a face mask. So now that you are geared up it is now time for me to show you how to use chlorine bleach to clean your shower tiles.

To clean shower tiles with chlorine bleach you need to pour 1/2 cup of bleach in a spray bottle and also add 2-3 cups of warm water to dilute it. Then spray the bleach onto the shower tiles and let it sit there for a couple of minutes. After doing that just rinse the bleach off the tiles with water.

So as you can see the main difference between using oxi clean bleach and chlorine bleach is that you have to dilute the chlorine bleach so that it isn’t as harsh as before.

 

6. Bathroom Cleaner

Using regular bathroom cleaners is almost the same as using bleach to clean the tiles in your shower. To clean your shower tiles with a bathroom cleaner spray all you need to do is spray the shower tiles and let the bathroom cleaner sit there for a couple of minutes. Then use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe the shower tiles. Make sure to clean the grout as well. The reason why you should use a microfiber cloth is that it will make your tiles shiny and clean without leaving any streaks.

Now rinse the tiles in your shower with warm water. After rinsing them you should use a dry cloth or cleaning towel to wipe away the moisture.

 

7. Dawn Dish Soap and Vinegar

dawn dish soap being used to clean shower tilesWe already know that Vinegar is great for cleaning tiles because its acidic content will break down and remove any soap scum stain from them. But dawn dish soap is great for cleaning tiles as well because it will deep clean the tile grout and remove any mold and mildew that was on them.

So when you mix these two together, you’ll have a powerful tile cleaner.

To clean shower tiles with vinegar and dawn dish soap you need to mix dawn dish soap and vinegar in equal amounts into a spray bottle filled with 1/4 cup of warm water. Now spray the mixture onto the tiles and leave the solution on them for 1-2 hours. After that, you can rinse off the solution from the tiles.

Doing this will get rid of all the stains that were on the tiles.

 

8. Use a Steam cleaner

If you don’t want to use any harsh chemicals, then you should probably get a steam cleaner. A steam cleaner will get the job done by blasting steam directly onto the tiles. While this is a good thing, a steam cleaner costs a lot of money. You can rent one instead, but that will still cost you a good amount of cash.

 

How to prevent shower tiles from getting dirty

Tips on How to clean air forces at home?

  • When cleaning your air forces at home be sure not to use any strong chemicals such as bleach as this may damage the materials.
  • Be sure to always clean them with a soft brush or cloth after wearing them outside. You can even use a magic eraser sponge as well. The reason why you want to do this is that most white air force ones usually start showing a yellowish buildup if not cleaned regularly.
  • To avoid getting dust on them while they are sitting in your closet or room, just place them in their original box and close it.
  • It is always important to deep clean your air force ones at least once a month because sometimes just quickly wiping it down won’t work.

How to clean airforces step by step

Cleaning white air force one sneaker with a microfiber cloth

Step 1. Remove the laces

Before you start cleaning it is always important to remove the laces from your shoes. Some air force ones may also come with some small decorations. Remove them as well (only if they can be removed).

 

Step 2. Remove loose dirt with a shoe brush

Just use a shoe brush with soft bristles to brush the dirt from the shoes. Most of the loose dirt will be on the sole of your shoes so make sure to clean them properly.

 

Step 3. Mix dish soap into the small tub of water

Make sure that the tub is only filled with about 1-2 cups of water.  Make sure to use the right dishwashing liquid because some of them may have some really strong chemicals that might damage the shoes. I think that dawn dish soap might be the best to use for something like this.

 

Create a cleaning solution or a DIY shoe cleaner (Optional step)

Get a spray bottle and mix together warm water and dish soap into it. When you are ready to use the spray mixture make sure to shake the bottle.

You can also mix baking soda and water together but I will explain this method later in this article.

 

Step 4.  Use the brush to clean the shoes

Dip the shoebrush into the mixture and gently clean the shoes. When cleaning your air force ones, you should use the brush in a circular motion. Doing this will get rid of all the dirt/dust that was on your shoes.

 

If you want a more precise way to clean or maybe you just want to clean the hard-to-reach spots on the shoes, just use a toothbrush instead of a shoe brush. When using a toothbrush you have to be careful not to scrub as the bristles on them are harder than the ones on a shoe brush.

 

 

Step 5. Rinse the bristles as you clean

This is a small but required step, but when cleaning your air force ones with a brush you have to make sure that you rinse the bristles as you clean. Doing this will prevent you from rubbing dirt all over the shoes.

 

Step 6. Clean the soles

When cleaning the soles of your shoes there are a lot of things to do. Most people will just tell you to clean them with a soft damp cloth and while that may be true some shoe soles might be so dirty that cleaning them with a cloth isn’t enough. If your shoe soles are like this then don’t worry because this step will come in handy.

Mix baking soda, warm water, and dish soap together in a small bowl. This will create a paste-like substance. Dip the toothbrush into the paste mixture and use it to clean the shoe soles. Rinse the toothbrush with clean water and repeat. Finally, wipe the bottom of the shoes with a wet cloth and then use a dry cloth to finish the job. You can also use a magic eraser sponge.

If you want more ways on how to clean your shoe soles just check out this article “ how to clean the bottom of shoes ”. Just make sure to avoid any method that includes bleach or other harsh chemicals that may damage your air force ones.

 

Step 7. Give the shoes a final wipe

After following every step above make sure to get a clean damp microfiber cloth and use it to wipe your shoes.

 

Step 8. Clean the shoelaces

Durty shoelaces can make even the cleanest shoes look very old. To clean your shoelaces you need to get a small container of water (around 2-3 cups) and add a few drops of dish soap or wash soap into it. Then place the shoelaces into the mixture and let them soak for a couple of minutes. After letting them soak use your hands to massage the laces. Then rinse them under running water. After rinsing them you should let them air dry.

 

Step 9.  Allow the shoes to air dry

Make sure you air dry your shoes at room temperature.  It is also important to allow them to dry before wearing them again (around 8-10 hours).

 

These tips are the best to follow when cleaning your air force ones.

Throughout this article, I showed you how to clean regular air force ones the right way. But there are many other air force ones that are made up of different materials such as suede, knit, etc.

 

I am going to give you some tips on how to clean these different materials.

 

How to clean suede airforce one sneakers

Suede is known to be very difficult to clean. One of the reasons why suede material is hard to clean is because you have to clean it with things other than water.

Here are some ways to clean your suede sneakers:

  • Use a suede brush to brush away any dirt or scuff marks you see on the shoes. Make sure that you brush the shoes in the same direction as the material. You can also use a suede rubber to clean the shoes as well.

Frequently asked questions about cleaning air force ones:

 

Can you wash air force 1s with a washing machine?

The answer to this is no. Washing your air forces in the washer is a very bad idea. While some other shoes are made of more durable materials, your Air force ones on the other hand would probably be damaged because it is made up of leather.

 

What to do if your shoes are still dirty after cleaning them?

If your air force ones or any other shoes are still dirty even if you followed all the steps and methods above then maybe your shoes are too old and you probably might need a new pair.

 

How to get rid of bad shoe odor?

This doesn’t only go for air force ones but a lot of shoes tend to smell bad after a while. The reason why this might happen is that the inside of your shoes was wet and you didn’t dry them properly or maybe it’s because of the bacteria that’s in your shoe or on your feet.

To get rid of the bad odor all you have to do is sprinkle baby powder inside your shoes and leave it overnight. The next morning you should shake out the baby powder and your shoes should be smelling way better than before. You can also use baking soda.

 

Why do air force ones turn yellow over time?

The reason for this is mainly due to oxidation. According to collinsdictionary.com oxidation is “ a process in which a chemical substance changes because of the addition of oxygen.”. So if you get dirt or dust on your air forces they will eventually turn yellow. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of ways in which you can prevent this.

 

How often should you clean air force ones?

This usually depends on how often you wear your shoes. Most people who jog daily or go out a lot will probably need to clean their shoes every two weeks while those who don’t usually go out or jog that often should only clean their shoes once a month or when they start to look really dirty.
