How to Clean Height Increasing Sneakers So They Look New Again?

Purchasing brand-new shoes and breaking them off on the first wear is enough to make you want to cry. Nothing ruins a fantastic outfit more than a pair of scuffed or dirty sneakers. How in the world are you going to wear your best sneakers and maintain their original cleanliness? There is only one method to take care of them, which is to provide them regular maintenance, aside from treating them like collectibles and storing them in a pressure-controlled vault. Allow us to demonstrate the proper method for keeping your elevator sneakers looking brand new.

3 general instructions for height increasing sneaker cleaning

We are aware that sometimes you lack the patience to give your shoes a thorough cleaning. Thus, before anyone begins thoroughly cleaning particular sneaker materials, consider these simple, fundamental tips to quickly freshen up your kicks. 

Step 1: Clear away any apparent dirt first. If you're pushed for time, you can also use a clean towel or your hand to accomplish this. Every time you take off your shoes, you should wipe away any dirt to help avoid accumulation and stop more significant issues later on.

Step 2: After that, use a wet towel or hose to rinse the soles off. You would be shocked at what sticks to the bottoms of your shoes, even on comparatively clean surfaces. It's not necessary to execute this step in great detail, but do not skip it.

Step 3: Lastly, give any large stains a spot clean. If the stain is sufficiently large, wipe it out as soon as possible using a soap and water mixture. You'll save a tonne of time in the long run by doing spot cleaning now.

Cleaning knit elevator sneakers

Knit sneakers are airy and fashionable, but they can attract dirt due to their mesh-like, breathable outer material. Since knit materials are porous by nature, unlike other types of fabrics, mud, filth, sweat, and grime are likely to penetrate into their micro-grooves and cause a mess that is difficult to clean up. Even though knit shoes need more care than other types of trainers, they may still be polished with a little perseverance and elbow grease.

Step 1: Pour warm water into a medium-sized bowl.

Step 2: Gently stir in a small amount of non-abrasive detergent or cleaning designed specifically for shoes.

Step 3: After the solution has been diluted, liberally apply it to the surface stain on the shoe by dipping a clean towel into the dish. You want to make sure you rub off as much of the stain as you can, so don't be hesitant to really get into it here.

Step 4: Apply another moist cloth to the shoe's surface, being careful to remove all of the extra shoe cleanser, if it appears that the debris has lifted. This time, wet the cloth just with water.

Step 5: This should solve the issue, but if dirt seems to be lodged in the knit fabric even after cleaning, give the shoe a little brushing.

Step 6: Allow the shoes to air dry thereafter.

Cleaning leather elevator sneakers

Although leather (or imitation leather) is an excellent sneaker material for individuals who want an edgy style, cleaning it can be a pain at times. Leather's natural patina is distorted by stains and abrasions of any kind, to which it is extremely susceptible.

The most crucial step, according to American Leather brand spokesperson Whitney Tinsley, is to spot clean stains as soon as you notice them. Let's discuss how to do it.

Step 1: Mix one part distilled water to three parts ivory dish soap to start the solution.

Step 2: Using a white cloth, apply the mixture to the stain and massage until the stain is completely gone.

Step 3: To balance out the tone, use a clean cloth to apply leather conditioner to the entire shoe's surface if the mark is really difficult to remove.

Cleaning suede elevator sneakers

Suede is another fabric that is known to be obstinate. Suede might be the hardest material to maintain immaculately. A smooth, velvety surface is created when the outer layer of leather is absent, but it is also more prone to issues.

Step 1: To start with the basics: Purchase a suede brush. It will work wonders to remove any dirt from the fibres in your suede trainer, but you don't want to massage it too hard.

Step 2: Use a suede rubber to remove the stain if the brush isn't strong enough. Use some force to press the rubber against the stain and continue manipulating it until the stain disappears. When you're done, apply a fresh cloth to the stain to remove any remaining material.

Step 3: Is there any dirt on the shoe now? It's time to get the white vinegar out! Gently work a dab into a clean cloth and blend it into the stain. Apply sparingly; you shouldn't need much. After the stain has been removed, rinse with a towel soaked with water and let it dry.

Cleaning canvas elevator shoes

After addressing the more challenging ones, let's take a moment to discuss how to maintain canvas shoes, which have a very easy-to-clean fabric. Although it is possible to machine wash canvas trainers (ideally using a pillowcase and bleach on a gentle cycle for all-white shoes), hand cleaning is still the most effective method.

Step 1: Just wash the entire shoe with the same solution of water and detergent that you prepared for the knit trainers.

Step 2: Use an old toothbrush to scrub the entire surface area until the stains are lifted.

Step 3: The shoes need to be like new after letting them dry for a few hours!

Cleaning your shoes in the washing machine

Although manual cleaning is preferable, some trainers can be cleaned in your washing machine. Remember that not every pair of shoes needs to be washed. Elevator shoes made of leather, suede, vinyl, or rubber should never be washed in a machine, according to washer manufacturer Whirlpool.

Step 1: Verify that the washer is set to the correct temperature.

As a general guideline, you should wash your shoes in cold water on a gentle cycle, but it's crucial to check the cleaning instructions that came with them. This will shield the shoes from harm and stop any potential shrinking that could happen in hot water.

Step 2: Place the shoes in a mesh bag made for washing machines or a pillowcase (without the laces and insoles).

By preventing your shoes from tumbling wildly about the machine during the wash cycle and perhaps injuring your washer's drum, this helps avoid damage to the washing machine. Additionally, Whirlpool advises placing some old towels in with your shoes to assist maintain balance and guard against damaging the machine.

Step 3: Don't allow it to rotate.

Verify that the washer is either in the no-spin or slow spin mode. You can prevent harm to your shoes by doing this. Once more, it will aid in preventing harm to your washer.
