Patent leather care

Care products for patent leather restore the colour and prevent the patent leather´s surface from becoming brittle. The use of shoetrees after wearing is recommended because patent leather is likely to crease.

Spray the foam onto a cloth or sponge (not directly onto the shoe!) and then distribute evenly and generously all over the shoe. After this, use a damp cloth to remove the foam from the shoe. Check the colour fastness of all materials first before using the product.

Cleaning patent leather

Before waterproofing and using care products you should remove dirt and mud first. Dry cleaning is a mechanical approach with brushes and cloths, for example. This way cleaning works quickly and the material is treated gently. With heavy stains we recommend damp cleaning with our cleaning products that contain chemical agents. Simply apply the product, allow it to absorb and remove surplus material with a damp cloth.
