Before you step out in your favorite sneakers, take a moment for pre-treatment. Apply a protective spray or coating to create a shield against dirt and stains, simplifying future cleaning efforts. Additionally, consider using sneaker shields or toe caps to maintain the sneakers’ shape and prevent unwanted creases. These proactive steps will keep your sneakers looking fresh and protect them from everyday wear and tear.

Water and Stain Repellent Spray: Look for a high-quality water and stain repellent spray specifically designed for sneakers. These sprays create a protective barrier that helps repel liquids and dirt, making cleaning easier.

Regular Cleaning

Keeping your sneakers clean and well-maintained not only prolongs their lifespan but also ensures they always look their best. To effectively clean your sneakers:

  1. Remove surface dirt: Begin by using a soft-bristle brush or toothbrush to gently scrub away dirt and debris from the surface of your sneakers. Take care not to scrub too vigorously, as this may cause damage to the material.

  2. Use a mild cleaning solution: Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing a small amount of mild laundry detergent or sneaker cleaner with water. Dip a clean cloth or sponge into the solution and gently scrub the sneakers using circular motions. It’s important to avoid bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can potentially discolor your shoes.

  3. Wipe off excess cleaner: After cleaning, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe off any excess cleaning solution from the sneakers. This step ensures that no residue remains, leaving your sneakers looking fresh and clean.

  4. Air dry: Allow your sneakers to air dry naturally, away from direct sunlight or heat sources. This process helps prevent any potential damage or warping caused by excessive heat. To maintain the shape of your sneakers during drying, consider stuffing them with white tissue paper or using shoe trees.

Remember to take proper care of your sneakers regularly to maintain their overall condition and appearance. At Kenz Klean we generally advise our clients to avoid DIY sneaker cleaning as this can cause irreversable damage to your expensive sneakers.

Deep Cleaning

When it’s time to give your sneakers a thorough clean, follow this simple guide to achieve a deep and refreshing result.

  1. Remove laces and insoles: Start by taking out the laces and insoles from your sneakers. This allows for easier access and a more comprehensive cleaning.

  2. Hand wash: Fill a basin or sink with warm water and add a small amount of mild detergent or sneaker cleaner. Submerge your sneakers in the water and use a soft brush or sponge to gently scrub them. Pay attention to any heavily soiled areas and ensure you clean both the exterior and interior of the sneakers.

  3. Rinse thoroughly: After scrubbing, rinse the sneakers with clean water to remove any lingering soap or cleaner. Thoroughly rinse off all surfaces of the sneakers to ensure no residue remains.

  4. Air dry: Once rinsed, place your sneakers in a well-ventilated area and allow them to air dry naturally. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, as they can cause damage or deformation. You can stuff them with white tissue paper or use shoe trees to help maintain their shape during drying.

Regular deep cleaning helps to rejuvenate your sneakers and keep them looking and smelling fresh. Remember to take care of your sneakers regularly to ensure their longevity and optimal condition.
