This ‘Shark Tank’ sneaker cleaner is available from Amazon

Why are sneaker soles – the part that literally spends all its time on the dirty ground – almost always white? It’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves since the beginning of Chuck Taylors. You buy brand new shiny Nikes (and ooh that new rubber smell!), but they’re worn and stained before you’ve barely left the house. Of course you can clean them with vinegar, but who wants to smell like a house salad? That’s where SneakErasers come in. These pre-moistened, double-sided sponges tackle pesky stains and grime with ease, and they’re only $3 each at Amazon.

All it takes is a gentle rub to achieve maximum cleaning power. And if the sponges start to dry during polishing, just add a little water to reactivate. Before you know it, you’ll literally be glowing whether you’re running errands or jogging around the neighborhood.

SneakErasers are the brainchild of college roommates turned entrepreneurs who realized the hard way how important clean sneakers are when you’re pitching multimillion dollar ideas to C-suites. (Yes, you can wear sneakers now — another reason to keep them clean.) From humble beginnings in a garage, this mighty sponge was born, which made it to Shark cage and is now one of Amazon’s top 10 shoe shiners.

This reviewer with now happy feet wrote, “With the first pair of sneakers I used it on, they were very dirty and there was no way they could be cleaned like new again. Well, I was wrong. At work, people saw it white on my sidewalls of my shoes.”

echoed another footloose fan: “I love using the SneakErasers. A simple, quick, easy way to make my sneakers look like I just bought them. I hate getting scuffs/dirty from normal urban wear and tear, and although my shoes are loved, they don’t look like them ;)! I used them on my Vans and Converse — so satisfying to erase all the grind! I find these to be more effective than cleaning sprays or magic erasers; you can tell they are made specifically for shoes and shoe materials.”

And what about the portability of SneakErasers? “I love that these come pre-moistened and are super easy to keep in the bag or car for quick use. Very solid to have in a pinch!

So whether you are a fitness fanatic, ambitious Shark cage participant or just someone who is always on the go, you’ll love SneakErasers, which keep your soles shiny wherever the day takes you.
