Importance of cleaning leather uppers
Leather uppers are a defining feature of Astorflex shoes. They add elegance and sophistication to the shoes, but they also require proper care to maintain their appearance and durability. Dirt, dust, and stains can accumulate on leather uppers, causing them to look dull and worn out. Cleaning leather uppers regularly can prevent this and extend the life of your shoes.
Tools and materials needed for cleaning
Before you start cleaning your Astorflex shoes, you will need some tools and materials. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Soft-bristled brush
- Clean, dry cloth
- Leather cleaner (preferably a pH-balanced one)
- Leather conditioner
- Water and a bowl (for cleaning suede uppers)
- Suede eraser and brush (for cleaning suede uppers)
Make sure to choose a leather cleaner and conditioner that are compatible with your shoes’ leather type.
Step-by-step guide to cleaning leather uppers
- Brush off any dirt or dust from the leather uppers using a soft-bristled brush.
- Dampen a clean cloth with water and wring it out. Apply a small amount of leather cleaner to the cloth and gently rub it onto the leather uppers. Avoid using too much cleaner as it may damage the leather.
- Wipe off the cleaner with a clean, damp cloth.
- Let the shoes air dry.
- Apply a small amount of leather conditioner to a clean, dry cloth and rub it onto the leather uppers in circular motions. This will help to restore the leather’s natural oils and prevent it from drying out and cracking.
- Let the shoes sit for a few minutes to allow the conditioner to absorb into the leather.
- Wipe off any excess conditioner with a clean, dry cloth.
- Let the shoes air dry completely before wearing them.
Tips for cleaning suede uppers
Suede uppers require a different cleaning approach than leather uppers. Here’s how to clean suede uppers:
- Use a suede eraser to remove any stains or marks on the suede uppers. Rub the eraser gently in a circular motion until the stain is removed.
- Use a suede brush to restore the nap of the suede. Brush the suede in one direction to avoid damaging the fibers.
- If the stain is still visible, you can clean the suede uppers using a mixture of water and white vinegar. Mix equal parts water and vinegar in a bowl and apply the mixture to the stain using a soft-bristled brush. Blot the suede with a clean cloth and let it air dry.
