As well all we have to do now is get our Cleaning station set up and get rid of One side of these shoes since as you Guys know or maybe you don't know we Only clean one shoe so that way we can Show you the before and after purposes So I'm going to get rid of this one I'm Going to get rid of this one and I'm Going to get rid of this one now let's Get our cleaning station set up so that Way we can start tackling all of this Suede first step we need to do is insert Our adjustable shoe trees into each of These sneakers so that way it will help Reform the sneaker as well as give us a Nice hard surface to really put pressure Onto these toe boxes to get this suede Mesh and other materials super cleaned Out using our solution XL shoe tree bars These things fit up to a size like 16 or 17 maybe even 18 I don't know they're Big these shoes are big get yourself Some XL Sho tree bars now that we have Our shoe trees inserted into each of These sneakers next thing I'm going to Do is take out the laces so that way we Can start the dry cleaning process now That we have the laces removed the first Thing I want to do is use the medium Bristle brush and I'm going to dry brush All of the top layer of dirt off of each Of these shoes simply because you don't Want to put water and solution onto a Shoe that has top layer of dirt and

Grime on it because all you're going to Do is rub that into the shoe so first Thing we're going to do take our brush And just lightly get the top layer of Dirt Off Now that we've dry brushed all three of These shoes you can tell how dirty that Top layer of dirt was simply by just Trying to brush it off with our standard Medium bristle brush next thing I'm Going to do is use our dry suede eraser From the ruinator dry suede kit just to Hit some of these darker deeper stains To see if we can help lift them up prior To getting the shoe wet make sure that You don't put a lot of pressure onto the Material because you do risk damaging it You just want want to take the Eraser And just slowly move it around on the Suede to really help get the Eraser Through the material and actually lift Out any of those stains or marks that You have on your Suede Shoes that's Going to wrap up using the dry suede Eraser the next thing we're going to do Is move over to our wet cleaning now Since the sneaker is Sue we want to be Very Mindful and careful for how much Water and solution we're putting on the Materials we're going to want to try to Keep it as dry as possible just lightly Getting it wet and scrubbing it in so For this we're going to use two squirts

Of our solution into our bowl of water Now this 4 oz bottle of solution can Clean up to 50 pairs so two squirts in Our bowl of water is good enough to do All three of these shoes now that we Have our solution in our bowl of water I'm actually going to take the laces From all three of them and let them soak In the water during this entire process So that way they can hopefully break Down this dirt and grime while we're Cleaning the sneakers first thing you Want to do is use our soft bristle brush It's the softest brush that's included In the rejuvenator essential kit and It's perfect for cleaning these delicate Materials because you don't risk Damaging the materials due to the Bristles on this brush just dunk it in The water let it drip a little bit and Let's lightly clean the top layer and Pat dry as we go so we don't Oversaturate the Suede and risk damaging It any more than it may already be from Just being as dirty as it is since the Upper of this sneaker does feature a Mesh type nylon upper we really want to Flush out the material the best way we Can using the soft bristle brush and Water in the solution so for this I'm Going to really clean deep inside the Sneaker all the way around to really Flush out the trapped in stains with Avoiding the suede as much as

Possible now that we finished cleaning The entire upper of the sneaker using Our soft bristle brush you can tell how Great of a job we did using the dry Suede kit ahead of time because this Sneaker is already looking a lot better Now this does have this like mesh nylon I don't really know what type of Material this is up top here still is Looking a little bit dirty it is wet it May brighten back up we're going to have To wait a little bit I was hoping I Wouldn't have to put the sneaker in the Laundry system but we may have to I'm Going to give it a little bit more time Just just to see how this kind of Lightens up as it dries but until then We're going to move on to our medium Bristle brush get your brush wet soap up The sneaker lightly brush it don't put Too much pressure especially in the Suede materials and pat dry as you go And let's see how well we can get this Material to flush out without using the Laundry system this brush is nice it's Kind of an allpurpose brush it's great For tons of different types of materials Even on this suede we used it on this Back panel as well as I hit this toe box Up a little bit again with this same Brush it actually really helped lift Some of that marks andan out of there Next and the last step we have to do on This is use our stiff bristle brush this

Is our stiffest bristle brush you don't Want to use it on anything except for Any of your hard rubber out soes or some Of your foam midsoles so be mindful when You're using this brush that you don't Rub up against other materials because You do run the risk of damaging them all Right that's going to wrap up the Cleaning on this new balance 327 as you Can tell the sneaker looking a lot Better it does look a little dingy Because the sneaker is wet I'm going to Go throw it outside probably come back In about an hour and it should be dried It is 80° out outside here in Arizona so It should dry pretty fast while this is Outside drying I'm going to move over to Our next sneaker which is the New Balance 515 be right back that 327s Outside drying next we're going to move On to this New Balance 515 it's got Suede mesh it's got some like cotton Material inside here the back of this is Like the super fuzzy soft material so We're going to have to be pretty mindful When we're using different brushes on This so first thing we're going to do is Grab our soft bristle brush and then Lightly go around all these suede panels To hopefully flush out this material the Best we can we're going to get into it Using our soft bristle brush and get to Cleaning all right that's going to wrap It up using our soft bristle brush on

The upper I'm actually pleasantly Surprised at how well it really cleaned This like cotton mesh material on the Sides here I was really thinking it was Going to have to go in the laundry but After we use our soft bristle brush I Don't think we're going to have to cuz It actually cleaned it very very well And I'm pleasantly surprised and I've Been doing this for years Next Step We're going to move on to our medium Bristle brush and we're going to clean This foam out soole as well as this Plastic back Tab All right I've hit these midsoles twice Using our medium bristle brush it got Some of that top layer of dirt off but There is some deeper darker marks and Staining along this foam here so for This I'm going to move over to our stiff Bristle brush now this foam you need to Be mindful of you do run the risk of Scratching and or gouging into it if you Put too much pressure with the stiff Bristle brush on this foam midsole as Well as the out soole but we're just Going to take it and try to get these Marks out all right that's going to wrap Up these 515s we used our three brushes And solution to clean these up and I'm Very very surprised and pleased of how Well they cleaned up all I got to do is Set them outside with those 327s to let

Them dry come back and we'll hop on to Those 202s so why the 515s and the 327s Are outside drying we're going to Basically rinse and repeat these 2002 RS Now the 2002r does have a premium suede Material and I know that because I have A lot of these cuz this is one of my Favorite models of New Balance um but The 2002r suede is a super duper premium Suede so you have to be very very Mindful of it with this mesh material All on the upper here we're going to try To be mindful using the medium bristle Brush to not snag or Fray any of the Material but we really have to get down Deep in here and really flush this out And then pat dry it to get the stains Out first thing we're going to do is Move over to our soft bristle Brush now I don't know if the camera is Picking it up or not but the second you Put any water and solution onto this Sneaker this material just sucks it Right up and just really absorbs it deep Into it so I've been putting a little Bit more Solution on there than I Typically would but I am already Starting to see where this suede Material is getting a little bit damaged By already oversaturating it so when you Are cleaning these 2002 RS just be very Mindful that this material is super Absorbent and will take in all of the Water and the solution that you put on

To it try to put less and go over it More frequently than oversaturating the Material one time they're cleaning up a Lot better there was some deeper Staining over here so I did this area Two or three times as well as back here In the heel I cleaned that area two or Three times but other than that it's Looking really really good next thing we Got to do is tackle the midsole as well As the out sole so for that I'm going to Use my medium bristle brush to go around And get into these more concave and kind Of like harder to reach areas then after That I'm going to move right over to my Stiff bristle brush to clean this out Soole and then we'll wrap it up and set It outside with the other Ones the sneaker looking great it does Look a little bit dingy because it is Wet there are some deeper stains that The soft bristle brush did not get out Of the suede material and I'm okay with That because we're going to go back and Use our dry weight kit after the Sneaker's fully dried the main thing was Trying to get the mesh as flush out as We possibly could therefore we didn't Have to put the sneaker in the laundry System the last thing we have to do is Set it aside and let it dry but before We put it outside with the other two Sneakers we've got to address these Laces now if you guys haven't noticed

This is the same bowl of water and Solution that we've had this entire Cleaning I haven't put any more solution In this bowl we're still using the same Two squirts as we did before just two Squirts in the bowl of water and you can Clean a bunch of shoes at one time I was Pretty weary of how the the essential Kit was going to clean all of these mesh Upper materials without putting them Through the laundry system but I'm Pleasantly surprised at how well they've Cleaned up they are all looking great Now the next step we have to do is Tackle all of these suede panels we did Our best to try to not overly saturate The material because we do know that it Does risk damaging it however just with Cleaning it with water and solution You're always going to run Into crunchy suede however we have a Super easy way to fix that that is our Medium bristle brush all we're going to Do is basically brush around the shoe to Try to reset the nap as well as clean up Some of this darker staining that may Still be on there after that we're going To hit with our dry toed eraser to see If we can eliminate any of these other Marks since these sneakers do feature Lighter colored suede panels the Staining may be prant because they are Just actually stained and unfortunately There's nothing you can do about it now

That I've dry brushed this shoe with the Medium bristle brush you can see how the Suede has been brought back to life Simply by brushing it with the brush This does take time time go slow don't Rush it don't be forceful with it move The brush around in multiple different Angles to really help reset the suede Back to its original Condition after you get done dry Brushing your sneakers you're going to Have the suede back to its original Condition where it's going to be nice And soft and supple all the way around Now since we have dry brush these shoes The next thing we're going to want to do Is really condition the suede to get it Back to its natural state and keep it Preserved for longer terms for that We're going to use the rejuvenator mink Oil this stuff is super easy to apply You simply hold the can away 6ck to 8 in Apply a light even coat to the sneaker Let it sit for a minute then bring in The rejuvenator horsehair brush and just Brush in the mink oil this way it'll Help recondition the sneaker as well as Give it a little bit more Life now that we finished resetting the Nap as well as reconditioning the suede On all of these sneakers the last step We have to do is lace them up hopefully I get the right ones Now that finalizes the cleaning on all
