It may sound like a no-brainer, but believe me not everyone knows how to properly clean their shoes. So here are a few tips to keep in mind:
(1) When cleaning shoes made of leather, use a damp piece of cloth to first wipe away any dust or dirt that may be on it. Allow to dry for about 2 minutes and then apply shoe polish using a shoe brush or soft piece of dry cloth. Allow to dry for about an hour and then shine it off with the shoe brush or piece of soft cloth.
(2) When cleaning suede shoes, use a suede-friendly shoe brush and suede shoe polish. In most cases, when you buy suede shoe polish it comes with a brush. It would help to first of all use a lint-free soft cloth that is slightly damped to remove any dirt that may be on the shoes. Then after allowing to dry, apply the suede shoe polish and allow to dry.
The basic thing to remember when cleaning your shoes is to remove any dust or dirt before applying shoe polish. I hope these tips have helped you get a better insight into how best you can clean your shoes.
