How can I get the white rubbers soles of my shoes white again?

White Rubber Soles on Shoes

To get your white rubber soles, white again, I would recommend using white-wall cleaner (designed for tires). Follow the package directions for cleaning tires. You could also try ice skate cleaner that you can purchase from a sporting goods shop.

Try also the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It does an amazing job of gently pulling off dirt from smooth tennis shoe leather and rubber soles.
