How To Clean Seven Different Types Of Shoes

Leather Shoes

Clean of debris by mixing up a solution using water and white vinegar all over the shoes. Once the shoes are fully dry, rub the hole shoe with a soft dry cloth. To get rid of the scuffs you dampen a cloth with water then dip in to baking soda and give the shoes a good rub. Wipe your shoes off then buffer them up with a clean dry cloth.

Suede Shoes

Cleaning in one direction use a scrubbing brush and gently remove all the dirt. Once you have got all the surface dust off go back and forth with the scrubbing brush to work on those deep stains. If there is still a slight stain on the shoe then try using a nail file, white vinegar or clear alcohol to get to that stubborn stain. You can also use these to brighten up the suede.

Sheepskin Boots

Using a clean scrubbing brush, gently wipe over the whole shoe to remove all the debris on the outside. Then use a white eraser to rub away the stubborn stains. Now, wipe the outside with a damp cloth (if the cloth is to wet, it could damage the material). Using a solution of cold water and white vinegar, gently work at the areas of the shoes that really need a clean. Finish this of by wiping the solution off with a damp cloth, then stuffing your shoes with newspaper so they keep the shape when drying.

Canvas shoes

Start by wiping the dirt of the Canvas shoes with clean toothbrush. Once you have done this use that toothbrush with a paste made of equal parts of baking soda and water in to the shoe sloes. Next, run a gentle cycle on your washing machine with cold water, adding about half the amount of detergent you would in a normal wash. After this you need to let your shoes air dry (never use a dryer, as the shoes could shrink).

Running shoes

First remove the dirt off using a clean toothbrush, then clean the brush. Mix up a solution using a table spoon of Laundry detergent and half a pint of water, then use this solution to scrub the mesh and rubber parts of the shoes. After this use a wet cloth or sponge to wipe the dirty soap suds off (do exactly the same with the laces as well). Clean of the areas around the string holes before lasing the laces back on your shoes.

White Trainers

Apply a small amount of nail polish remover or white vinegar to a clean cloth, then use this to wipe away the stains in the white trainers. You can also use bleach, but make sure that this is diluted before applying to the Trainer. To finish this use a damp warm cloth to remove the solutions from the shoes.

Flip Flops

First run your Flip Flops under a warm tap, then whilst they are still wet cover them with baking soda all over and leave them for five minutes. After five minutes remove the baking soda using an old or new toothbrush. you can also use your washing machine to clean of all that dirt, just use a small amount of detergent and a small cup of vinegar as they run through the cold delicate setting.
