Sneaker care | Carbon Lab | Collonil
Have you bought a pair of sneakers that could use a cleaning? Or do you want to be sure that you can enjoy your sneakers for as long as possible? We have some useful tips then! By taking good care of your sneakers, they last longer and retain their value. In this blog we tell you exactly which products you need and which steps you need to take to keep your sneakers clean.
Step 1 – Protect: First of all, make sure you protect your sneakers well. The most important step! You do protect your sneakers this with our Protecting Spray and Midsole Sealer. Repeat the impregnation and sealing every 30 days.
Step 2 – Cleaning: There are various options for cleaning. Always start with ‘dry cleaning’ by using our Nubuck Suede Cleaner and / or Spot Cleaner. Only if you do not get your sneakers cleaner without liquids, apply ‘wet cleaning’. We are a big fan of our Cleaning Foam. You use this foam in combination with the Premium Cleaning Brush. Of course we also have a liquid alternative within the Carbon Lab line: Cleaning Solution. This cleaning agent is also ideal for cleaning your laces. When you’ve treated your sneakers with your sneaker cleaner and brush, use the Premium Microfiber Cloth to wipe the cleaning residue off your sneakers. We do also sell all you need to clean your sneakers in handy kits.
Step 3 – Neutralize: The third step is to neutralize bad odors in shoes. We can’t make it any easier than offering you our Odor Cleaner. Spray for a few seconds and the bacteria that cause bad odors will be dissolved.
Step 4 – Care: Finally, treat your sneakers with Sneaker Care to feed the materials. You prevent dehydration of leather and fabric and ensure that original colores are recovered as much as possible. When you are done with this step you start all over again: protect your sneakers with the Carbon Lab Protecting Spray from Collonil. This will prevent you from brushing again next week.
