Cleaning winter shoes: find out how

To clean winter footwear, particularly shoes or boots made of leather, suede or water-resistant synthetic materials, you need to take special care. In this article we'll give you some tips on the best way to clean and keep your shoes spotless!


Tips for cleaning winter shoes

Shoes are a crucial element of clothing and essential to everyone's personal style. So there's no doubt that the way we look after and store our footwear is important. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to look after your shoes:

  1. Cleaning

The first step is to remove any dirt or dust that has accumulated on the surface of your shoes with a brush, damp cloth or sponge. Depending on the material, you can use leather soap or cleaning foam specially developed for shoe care. Important: never use household cleaning products as they may damage the shoes.

  1. Drying

It is advisable to let your shoes dry outdoors, but not in the sun or direct heat. If they are very damp, place absorbent paper inside to remove the moisture more quickly. Leather especially takes longer to dry, so be patient.

  1. Moisturizing and shining

When you've removed the dust and the shoe is dry, you can proceed to polish the shoes, if that's the finish you want. To do this, first apply the cream. This will moisturize the shoe and remove stubborn stains. Then, if you want to give the shoe a shine, use wax, applying it evenly and for as long as possible. Once the wax has been applied, use a polishing glove or cloth to remove the excess wax and leave it shiny. And of course, don't forget that these products should be used sparingly.

In addition to these cleaning tips, knowing how to store your shoes is also an art. Store your boots in an airy, dry place as this will prevent the development of odors or mold; don't use plastic bags to store them, but rather permeable fabric bags or the shoe box itself; and finally, store them in an organized manner - if you stack them on top of each other they could be damaged in the long run.
