Howdy patrons!! It is true that if your shoe is afflicted with a nasty stain, like that of oil/dye transfer/grease etc, then regular cleaning at home would not help. Similarly in the case of discolouration, you  need to take your shoes to a professional leather care expert for colour restoration! However general dirt/dust & soft stains can very well be taken care of at home! Kindly check out the tips below-

  1. Remove excess dirt first using a soft-bristled brush (shoe brush or old toothbrush) to clean the outsole.
  2. Mix warm water and a small amount of laundry detergent to create a slightly soapy mixture.
  3. Apply a small amount of the water/detergent mixture to a sponge, soft cloth or soft brush and clean affected areas.
  4. Apply a small amount of warm water to another sponge or soft cloth to remove any excess detergent.
  5. Air dry the shoes at room temperature.

If the above steps do not work, do not use any hard chemicals (like solvents etc.) at home! Instead take your shoes to a leather care specialist!!
