How to Clean Your Shoes with the Right Brushes

Posted by Erin Shoffer on

Ever wonder how to care for your Reshoevn8r brushes? Or maybe you just don't know why it is actually necessary to use all 3 Reshoevn8r brushes? Keep reading to get all your brush questions answered...

Why do you need 3 brushes?

Reshoevn8r is unique in our cleaning method as we provide 3 brushes in most of our cleaning kits. These brushes are the Soft, Medium (or All- Purpose) and Stiff Brushes. Each brush works optimally for a different material. The Soft Brush is ideal for suede or knitted materials. The Medium and All – Purpose Brush is great for tougher materials such as leather or canvas. Lastly, the Stiff Brush works best for soles. Using all 3 together will give you the ultimate clean!

How to store brushes?

To increase the longevity of your Reshoevn8r brushes we recommend letting them dry bristles down on a flat surface, such as a counter top. This allows all the soap and water to drain out of the wood preventing mold and cracking from occurring. In addition, after using the brushes, we recommend rinsing them thoroughly to remove any soap residue.

 

When do you need to replace your brushes?

If stored and cared for properly your Reshoevn8r brushes can last you for many cleans to come. Our rule of thumb in regard to replacing brushes, is typically when you start to visibly see the bristles on the brushes fray you can replace them.

 

What’s the best brush to restore your nap?

Restoring the nap (texture) of the suede after a cleaning is usually imperative. If you are working with a really delicate suede it is usually best to brush the suede using a dry All-Purpose Brush, combing in one direction. If that doesn’t work and the suede is still tough you can move to using the Brass Brush. We would only recommend moving to this method if the suede is a rough texture to begin with. Again, combing in only one direction.

 

What’s the best brush for your soles?

We recommend using the Stiff Brush first on soles. However, if the soles have a lot of wear and tear or grime stuck deep inside the grooves of the soles you can move onto the Brass Brush. This step is only really recommended on white soles and to use with caution. Also, the Brass Brush can be helpful when cleaning a rubber toe cap area near leather because the brush can be controlled easier which helps the cleaner avoid scrubbing and damaging the leather.

 

When do you need to dry brush a shoe?

If you are working with a shoe that has caked in mud, then you should begin by brushing the shoe using a dry Soft or All-Purpose Brush to remove loose dirt. This step is important, so you aren’t resaturating the dirt and creating wet mud again.

How to Wash Your Shoes in the Washing Machine?

Posted by Erin Shoffer on

We frequently get asked about how our patented Laundry System works. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions and answers:

How many shoes can be washed at once?

You can typically wash 2-3 pairs of shoes at a time, depending on the size of your washing machine. Make sure each pair of shoes is in its own laundry bag, and add an additional amount of Laundry Detergent per pair (read all detergent labels.) If you are washing shoes that are different colors, or heavily dyed we recommend washing separately.

What washer to use?

We recommend using a top load washer when washing shoes due to the weight of shoes. When they are in a front load washer, they usually don’t end up getting a full spin; and just sit at the bottom of the machine, which can cause discoloration or mold.

What settings to use on the washer?

Every washer is different, but we recommend using a full spin cycle to fully irrigate the shoes. Also, we recommend using cold water as to not shrink the shoes.

What shoes can’t go into the washer?

We don’t recommend putting heavily dyed suede or nubuck shoes in the washer, as they may bleed. In addition, printed canvas shoes, such as Vans, may smear in when wet, therefore we don't recommend cleaning those. Also, if a shoe is over 10 years old, you may see some sole separation if you choose to put them in the washer. For best results please contact our team, to ensure the shoe should go in the washer. 

Do you keep the shoe trees in while washing?

Yes! It helps keep the shoes shape while cleaning and also helps remove creasing on most shoes. (We recommend these plastic shoe trees, as metal can rust, and wood can warp when wet.)

Why do you need a laundry bag?

To protect your shoes. With the rough edges and holes found in most washing machines, the laundry bag keeps your shoes from flying around the barrel and getting snagged or damaged.

How do you dry your shoes?

We recommend air drying your shoes. Never put shoes in the dryer for risk of damage. Also, make sure to remove promptly from the washer for best results!

  • Let air dry.

*Depending on the chocolate, there may be some oily residue left behind, that you can see once the shoe is dry. The best way to clean oil is to use oil, however ammonia and typical cleaners are too harsh and will discolor your shoes.

  • Using a dye and alcohol-free laundry detergent made with all-natural oils, place the shoes into a laundry bag. Insert the shoes and detergent in the washing basin and set on a normal cycle with cold water.

How to Clean Colored Suede

Posted by Erin Shoffer on

Don’t let the color of your suede discourage you from getting your sneakers clean! Clean even the most vibrant suede shoes with a quick and easy process.

How to Clean Colored SuedeRemove the laces and set aside to clean later. Take a shoe tree and insert in the sneaker. This will gives a better surface to apply more pressure during the cleaning.

How to Clean Colored SuedeNext, using an all-natural, dye free cleaner, add a small amount to a bowl filled with water. (Many shoe cleaners on the market are known to stain shoes due to dye or chemicals, we recommend using this sneaker cleaner.)

How to Clean Colored Suede

In order to mix the solution, take a delicate brush (it is important to use a brush with soft bristles on the colored suede) and lightly stir the solution using the bristles. 

Once mixed, apply the solution to the suede sneaker using the soft brush in circular motions over the entire uppers. When applying, shake off excess water to reduce bleed. 

How to Clean Colored Suede Then using the medium brush repeat cleaning some tougher spots on the suede, using gentle strokes.

Moving onto the soles, it is important to clean them with a very stiff brush. The soles are likely to have the most dirt and grime, and the stiffer bristles can remove dirt the best.

Additionally, using a microfiber towel dipped in the solution mixture, you can buff out some marks on the midsoles.

Lastly, using a microfiber towel, pat the entire shoe down, and let air dry. 

The final step is to take the shoe laces that you set aside and dunk them in the remaining solution mixture and lather by rubbing them in between your hands.

6 Sneakers to Wear with Your Halloween Costume

Posted by Erin Shoffer on

Halloween is here - the one time a year adults get to act like children and dress up as their favorite characters. Whether you are a store bought or handmade costume wearer, there is always a piece of the costume that goes over looked – the shoes. We have compiled a list of popular 2018 Halloween costume ideas, with the perfect pair of corresponding shoes. So, if you have found yourself wondering, “What sneakers should I wear to complete Black Panther costume?” keep on reading!

 

Boss Ross

The man. The myth. The legend. The painter. Bob Ross in the recent years has made quite the comeback. Despite being off air for 20 plus years, "The Joy of Painting" has found its new home with cult classic fans, and casual Netflix viewers alike.

To recreate Bob’s signature look, you have to have some imagination; as most of the videos are shot waist up, and there are minimal photos of his full body online. However, a man that can pull off blue on blue, would definitively be a secret hype beast that would pay resell for Jordan 4 Levi’s, to complete his whole denim ensemble.

Spray with Water + Stain Repellent before you start spilling your watercolors. 

 

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is a Halloween staple, and without fail can be found in at least one iteration at any Halloween party. But this year you can stand out from the crowd with some Jordan 8’s Valentine’s Day. The bold red color is identical in color to the boots that Wonder Woman adorns and the high-top look alludes to the footwear armor that she wears in every film.

Rick and Morty

Rick and Morty. Two names, millions of fans. The simply drawn cartoon characters have grown a fandom seemingly overnight, and Rick makes for the perfect 2018 Halloween costume. The teal shirt, white lab coat, and kakis will identify you as the character almost immediately. So, have some fun with the footwear and toss out the boring brown loafer and opt for a pair of New Balance 577 in brown. Still within the same hue, the New Balance sneakers complete the “nerdy” look while still being trendy and hip.

Eleven

As long as Stranger Things keeps making more episodes, Eleven will remain a common go-to Halloween costume. With just a simple pink dress, knee high socks and Eggo waffles you are almost half there. To complete the look, you probably only have to go so far as the bottom of your closet. It is time to rock that old pair of High Top Converse you have had since your early college days. It is ok, you can keep them dirty for now, but at the end of the night when you remember how amazing Converse are again you may want to clean them up with Reshoevn8r Sneaker Laundry System and put them back into your weekly cycle.

Black Panther

This list would not be complete without Black Panther. With your sleek all black gear, and your just released Nike React Element 55’s in Black and White, you will make Wakanda proud. The black color will seamlessly blend with which ever pair of tight black pants you decide to wear, while the white midsole will certainly catch a few eyes.

Pennywise

And lastly, the movie scared us as children returned in 2017 to scare a whole new generation, IT, and the star – Pennywise. This is one of the trickier costumes to make at home, so if you attempt, all props to you. You don’t need the clown shoes to frighten your fellow guest, just shock them when you step inside wearing your pair of Reebok Kamikaze 1 Mids. The black and white lines parallel the ideas of the original costume, while also being a sneaker that you will never want to take off.
