Cleaning and spot removers for shoe care tasks

Cleaning and spot removers for shoe care tasks

Your leather apparel can get dirty, dingy and have unwanted spots - you wonder how to get it looking new again. Leather requires regular conditioning and protection from the elements in order to stay fresh and give the appearance of being new. In order to do this, you need to acquire just the right products and use them in the proper way.
You will need to start with a good brush. It is important to use the proper brush for the type of leather you are cleaning. For example, if you are going to clean suede you would use the Famaco Natural Crepe Suede Brush. It is specially designed with ribbons of crepe rubber which efficiently removes dust and debris and raises the nap to restore the look and feel of the suede. For those tight, hard to reach spots of your leather footwear and other leather products you can use a Shoe Edge Cleaning Brush. This long, narrow brush is the perfect tool to get into those hard to reach seams and creases without damaging the leather.
Now to clean and condition your leather and an excellent product to use on suede is the Woly Suede & Velour Gum and Famaco Raviv Cuir. The Gum is used like an eraser on spots and stains and will absorb any oils or grease without the use of solvents. You simply rub the Gum back and forth, working with the grain to clean with perfection. Another wonderful Woly product is the Suede and Nubuck Sponge. This sponge lifts dirt and grime from the napped leather to leave it looking bright and fresh and leaves it dry without the use of any chemicals.
If you would prefer to use other cleaners there is Burgol Spezial-cuir/Special Leather Cleaner and Conditioner. This product is formulated with a variety of rich and nourishing vegetable waxes to provide a natural and gentle cleaning. This cleaner is an especially useful item if you need to clean a large leather area such as upholstery.
These are just a few of your options for cleaning and removing spots from your precious leather. There is a wide variety of products available for purchase at Valentino Garemi Canada.
