Simple Tips on How to Take Care of Different Types
Take care of leather shoes by using three simple, basic steps: clean, polish, protect. Using a damp cloth or soft brush, clean the surface of leather shoes to remove dirt and dust. Spread a shoe polish that is specially made for leather over their entire surface. Allow the polish to dry and buff them using a soft brush to make them shiny and look good as new. Some leather wax and oil are also available to protect leather shoes from wetness and moisture.
Store them on areas that have good air ventilation. Make sure that you put these on air dry after every use before storing them in cabinets or shoe racks. This prevents accumulation of shoe moisture that often leads to formation of fungus. If ever fungus becomes present on your shoes, remove them using a damp cloth. It is important that shoes made of leather are kept dry all the time. Use paper towels or tissues to pat dry their inner areas to prevent them from having bad odor due to bacteria and fungal buildup.
Use a suede brush in cleaning shoes made from suede material. Do light strokes that go on the same direction. This effectively removes dirt and dust and helps keep the fibers of suede look good as new. It also prevents these fibers from falling or tearing apart. Remove stains caused by water by wetting the entire shoe surface. Dry blotting the shoe exterior using a piece of cloth then start cleaning it with the suede brush. On the other hand, stains caused by oils and dyes are hard to remove using the above techniques. This means that there is a possibility that you cannot return the original look of your sued shoes. Apply a layer of shoe protector especially made for suede after each cleaning session.
Combination of soap and warm water effectively removes dirt and dust from the surface of rubber shoes. Athletic, rubber shoes used for hiking and climbing activities will more or less likely have soil and dirt accumulation on their soles. Without submerging the entire shoes, put the rubber soles under warm water to help scruff of hard-to-remove dirt that has already hardened.
Another common problem with shoes made from rubber is ink stains. These are not easily removed from their surface by using plain soap and water. Look for lemon extract and put some drops on cotton. Rub it over the ink-stained surface and use a soft brush to further remove left shoe exterior discoloration. It is advisable to use mild soaps over strong detergents. These prevent destruction of the silicone coating of rubbers. Use rubber conditioners to further protect and enhance your rubber shoes.
