Tips for Cleaning Girls' Shoes

Girls can accumulate a lot of shoes and it is important to keep them clean and polished to maintain their appearance and ensure they last a long time. Girls' shoes should be checked frequently to make sure they are free from rips or tears and that the sole is intact. Shoes should be wiped clean daily with a damp rag or paper towel.

To add shine to leather shoes, the shoes should be wiped clean of any debris or dirt. They can then be polished with a quality shoe polish. Scuff marks can be removed by rubbing a polishing cream onto the shoe with a lint-free cloth. The shoe can then be buffed with a shoe brush. Stubborn scuff marks can be rubbed away with the use of a dry eraser.

Trainers that become dirty or have an odour can be soaked in warm water mixed with a mild dish-washing detergent. Scrubbing with a toothbrush will help remove any stubborn stains or marks. Shoes that are labelled machine washable and are made from a canvas material can be cleaned in the washing machine. Heat from a dryer can cause damage, so shoes should only be allowed to air-dry. Baking soda can be sprinkled in shoes and left to sit overnight to help eliminate odour.

Cheap girls' shoes allow parents to purchase a few different pairs, so their child will always have an extra pair for when the others are being cleaned.
