How To Remove Pen Writing From White Tennis Shoes

Learning how to remove pen writing from white tennis shoes is a very useful skill to develop. White tennis shoes tend to get dirty very easy. Following some basic steps, however, can make it possible for you to remove pen writing from your white tennis shoes.

To remove pen writing from white tennis shoes, you will need:

  • Kitchen bowl
  • Warm water                      
  • Paper towel                    
  • Comet Cleaner                           
  1. The key to removing pen writing from white tennis shoes is to treat the shoe quickly. A pen stain on a white tennis shoe will settle into the tennis shoe leather quickly. So, make sure you treat the pen writing on the white tennis shoe very soon after exposure. 
  2. You will need to first clean the surface on the white tennis shoe that is stained with pen. Take any kitchen bowl and fill the bowl with warm water. Grab a paper towel and dip it in the warm water. Apply the wet paper towel directly onto the stained pen surface of the white tennis shoe. Allow the paper towel to rest on the white tennis shoe for ten minutes. The goal here is to transfer as much of the ink as possible from the white tennis shoe onto the wet paper towel.
  3. Now, discard the previously used wet paper towel and replace it with a fresh wet paper towel. Take a little amount of the comet cleaner and pour it onto the wet paper towel. Now gently scrub the surface of the white tennis shoe. It is important to rub carefully to prevent the leather of the white tennis shoe from peeling off. The goal is to remove the pen ink from the white tennis shoe without further damaging your shoe.
