How to clean Mesh Shoes?

Mesh or knit is one of the most comfortable and breathable materials for shoes; however, it can also become quite a nuisance when it comes to keeping mesh shoes clean. With that said, in this blog, we will guide you on properly cleaning mesh shoes.

Things you need to clean your Mesh Shoes

Before you dive into the mesh-pit, get it? Eh never mind. Now, mesh cleaning, there are some things you definitely need for optimal cleaning.

Bowl: To hold the cleaning solution without any unwanted splashes. We already have a dirty shoe, don’t want a dirty table. SHOEGR Collapsible Bowl is ideal for this job.

Soft Brush: Because the mesh is delicate, we don’t want to ruin it. Use something like a SHOEGR Soft Brush to ensure damage-free cleaning.

Hard Brush: Why Hard Brush? Because we have to clean the sole as well, and since the sole is made up of tough material SHOEGR Hard Brush can tackle that with ease.

Shoe Cleaning Solution: Can’t clean without a cleaning solution right? And SHOEGR Cleaning Solution is everything you need for ideal shoe cleaning.

Microfiber Towel: A handy-dandy Microfibre Towel to quickly and gently wipe off excess moisture.
