How To Care For Fabric Shoes

While fabric shoes are a little more of a challenge to keep clean, there are several things that you can do to keep them looking great for years!

Cleaning

  • Lightly brush dirt and debris away using a light colored horsehair, or soft nylon brush.
  • Gently wipe with a damp, lint-free cloth.
  • Light dirt spots can be removed using Club Soda, seltzer water, or soda water and a toothbrush. Wipe to remove excess water and air dry. You can avoid water marks by "chasing" wet patches with a damp cloth.
  • Heavier marks and/or stains can be removed using International Professional Fabric Shoe Cleaner or Scotchgard fabric cleaner.

Protecting

Other Tips

  • Dyeable satin shoes that have been dyed should be fixed with a fabric protectant spray such as Scotchgard or International Professional Fabric Shoe Cleaner before attempting any cleaning or dry cleaning.
  • Always test any new cleaning method used with fabric shoes in an inconspicuous place on the shoes first.
