Now we gotta be honest.. This clean was the furthest thing from perfect. We dealt with obstacles, color bleed, staining and more on this tricky thick canvas material. Although there were obstacles the sneaker cleaned up pretty well.

In today’s Shoe Care Academy episode we walk you through how to clean light canvas materials using the Signature Cleaning Kit. For this material specifically you have to use the patented laundry system to get the best results.

To start off we used the 3 different brushes to break down the grease that was trapped in. The all natural solution was used to flush out the materials while also conditioning the canvas and leather. We started by using the Soft Bristle Brush on the upper materials.. Be mindful that this is the ONLY brush you should use on this material. Typically the canvas isn’t this fragile, but for this it frays extremely bad, so don’t use the Medium Brush. We also cleaned the interior of the sneaker using this brush. After all the interior of the sneaker traps in bacteria and odor, so it is a must to clean the ENTIRE sneaker!

Once the upper was looking slighly better we relied on the Medium Brush to clean the rubber midsoles and the insole from the sneaker. The Medium Brush does a good job breaking down any staining on the rubber materials. Once that was completed it was time to go in with the Stiff Brush. We used this to clean the outsole and the harder portion of the midsole! After the pretreatment was done the sneaker still looked really dingy, but we had high hopes that the washing machine would help!

These were washed on a normal cycle with cold water and left to air dry. However, they were not up to par once we took them out, so they needed one more cleaning. We used additional tools to help with this, but it was ONLY because they were way passed the point of dirty when we started. However, after the second wash these were looking like a night and day difference!

Material is super tricky to Clean I went ahead and cleaned the entire Sneaker again using our soft bristle Brush and natural solution that area is Still a problem area it really doesn't Look any better I use the air compressor To try to blow out the rest of this Remaining dirt but it didn't work I am Pretty sure that this is color bleed but I'm going to try this steamer and then Throw it through the washing machine one More time now I know you guys don't have A compressor or a steamer at home and That's completely fine your shoes also Probably don't get this dirty at home so Let's try that steamer and hope that it Works I don't even know how to use a Steamer nor can I [Music] See we went ahead and washed this on a Rinse and spin cycle to just really Flush out the materials I am pretty sure That it is color bleed but we will check Out the sneaker once it's done in the Rinse and spin cycle allow it to dry and Then we'll be right back all right we Went ahead and got the shoe out of the Washing machine for the second time Overall it looks really good the black Kind of came out of this material There's still a little bit of dinginess On this but it came out a lot better the Second wash smells a lot fresher overall
