    ^^when putting trainers on the radiator (leather or material like that) put new's paper in proper stuff them, or you end up with trainers with wrinkles and they don't come out, or at least they did'nt with me

    I use a soapy (but quite dry) old toothbrush, then use minimum water on toothbrush to clean soap & dirt off.

    Wetwipes are very good for cleaning the tops.

    aww that really sucks man :(

    maybe turn the hot water tap off on your washing machine? theres absolutely nothing wrong with washing clothes in cold water. hot water makes your colours fade faster anyway. the only time i ever use warm water is when i want to make my whites really white.

    not to sure where u would find nice Nikes over there. But, rule number 1, dont ever put your kicks in the wash. buy this stuff its called Sneaker White by kiwi...it whitens your kicks (specialy round the sole) its a spray on can with like a bristle cap on top of the can u use to scower off the dirt. works awesome.
