How to Clean Canvas Sneakers

For that deep clean to make your sneakers look like new.

  1. Begin dry brushing the sneaker to get rid of any loose dirt, which could turn into a stain when wet.
  2. Remove the laces and set them aside to clean separately.
  3. Get a bowl of water and dampen your Premium Brush, shake off any excess water and then add a couple of drops of the Premium Shoe Cleaner solution to the brush.
  4. Move in circular motions to remove the dirt.
  5. Once clean take a microfibre towel to dry off and soak up the moisture.
  6. Add the laces to the bowl of water and add a couple of drops of the Premium Shoe Cleaner onto the laces. Rub them with your hands to remove any dirt.
  7. Dry the laces with the microfibre cloth and then leave to dry completely.

A tip to cleaning canvas sneakers is to not get them too wet with water or solution.

If you want a speedier clean the Ready-To-Use Foam cuts out the need for a bowl as it is pre-diluted. For use follow the steps above without the need of the extra bowl of water.

How Often Should You Clean Sneakers?

Regular maintenance of sneakers will keep them in shape and prevent dirt build up. The Quick Wipes are ideal for a quick clean. The longer you neglect your sneakers the more difficult it will be to clean.

A weekly deep clean is recommended if you want to keep your footwear in prime condition.

Can Jason Markk Clean Suede?

Suede is notorious for being difficult to clean, it gets dirtier faster and stains easily. But Jason Markk makes cleaning suede easier with their Suede Kit and Ready-To-Use Foam.

  1. Use a dry suede brush to remove any loose dirt to prevent further staining.
  2. Lightly erase blemishes with the Eraser from the Suede Kit.
  3. Remember that minimal liquid is key, the Ready-To-Use Foam is ideal as it already comes pre-diluted. Use the foam with the Premium Brush to brush and target specific areas.
  4. Dry with a microfibre towel to blot moisture using a dabbing technique.

A tip is to keep up with dry brushing suede after each use to prevent dirt build up.

Leather is one of the easiest materials to clean, however, if the leather is fragile or premium a Jason Markk Premium Brush is best to use to prevent damage.

  2. Apply a generous amount of solution onto the brush and dip into a bowl of water. Shake off excess water and begin brushing the shoe.
  3. Dry with a microfibre cloth.
  4. Use Quick Wipes, which are perfect for leather shoes, for a speedier clean.
