How To Clean Shoes

 

Sports shoes

Ideally handwash in cold water with a brush and a small amount of soap. Then let dry in the open air and sun.

Avoid using a washing machine, which causes a loss in the original shape and fit, making the shoe uncomfortable to wear.        

           

Leather shoes

Try using olive oil for a good shiny effect.

For stubborn stains clean with lemon juice or tartar cream which should be left some hours before removing.

Suede shoes

There are many ways to clean suede. Here are a few examples:

    

1. Dip a small sponge into vinegar and gently rub into the shoe’s surface. On drying it will be clear if the stain has been removed or become much lighter.     

   

2 .Good results can be achieved by gently rubbing the stained areas with a very fine sandpaper.

3. Another way based on water – boil water in a medium size saucepan, add 1 spoon of washing powder or stain remover. Hold shoe over steam for 10 seconds and then gently rub the stained areas with a soft brush.     

                             

4. None of these work you need a professional dry cleaner

Canvas shoes

Clean and brush the shoes from all loose dirt and dust. Prepare a paste by mixing 1 spoon sodium bicarbonate, ½ teaspoon water, ½ teaspoon hydrogen peroxide

Spread the paste over the shoes with a soft brush (an old toothbrush is fine). Leave in the sun 3 hours until paste crack. Remove hard paste with dry brush.
