My white sneakers need cleaning.
I'm quite fond of them, I use them a lot, I want to keep them as white as possible without damaging them. But how?
I thought of looking it up on Youtube. There are How-to videos for everything these days. You don't need to be a specialist anymore. Type it, see it, do it. I'm a great believer of doing stuff myself, I can paint the walls of my house, make my garden flourish, bake bread, check the oil of my car, bandage a wound, and even connect small electrical cables with a domino if needed. What I don't know, I Google.
Then I thought "and if it fails? My favourite sneakers will be ruined." So I did the only thing one does when something is really important: I asked an expert. I called my mum.
You see, some of the useful skills in my life are a direct result of years of doing things alongside my dad or my mum. The one I cherish above all is the will to try. I'm by no means fearless, no, as I am often afraid before trying something new, but I do it anyway. And I do it again, I do it enough to perfect it. I work on it. They taught me that. To do my best. To be proud of what I do.
So, while thinking of the best way to clean my white sneakers, and after calling my mum, I thought of all the other instances when calling an expert who perfected their craft with love, time, and talent is the best way to ensure that something important is well done.
Oh, and by the way, my mum said that using a soft brush and tepid water with some dishwashing soap, and let it dry under the sunshine.ry under the sunshine.
I think I might just do that, let the sun do it's magic, on me and my sneakers.
