How to Clean White Converse -- via wikiHow.com This is so good! It really worked. My converse are now white like snow again! I tried this with Vanish, water and a little drop of some natural liquid detergent. So if you want to you can just take some whitening detergent and blend it with water because it works too, and then just scrub the whole shoes with either a toothbrush or a dishbrush. I hope this helped!!
