How do you clean white rubber soles?
Simply soak a few cotton balls with a generous amount of nail polish remover and scrub the white rubber soles of your sneakers until they look nice and white.

How do you clean white strips on shoes?

Can you use bleach on rubber?
Using Soap and Water for Light Stains According to Family Handyman, dish detergent, water and a soft-bristle scrubbing brush can do the job of ridding most rubber products of minor stains and surface dirt. Using chemicals such as bleach or ammonia may wear them down quickly by causing them to degrade or break.
Why did my white shoes turn yellow?
White shoes easily turn yellow in the sun, oxidize and turn yellow after washing with a long stay in the air. Another reason is that the shoes still contain some amount of detergent (or soap), which is not completely erased and creates a chemical reaction under the sun during ventilation.
