How to Clean Satin Shoes

The reason that most women do not understand how to clean satin shoes is that they have the impression that these shoes are too delicate to be cleaned. They think that if it were so delicate then a regular cloth would be sufficient.

Nothing could be further from the truth as this type of shoe has a silk or satin embroidery technique. When you try to clean them you will find that it is quite difficult because the delicate design leaves little room for error. So it is necessary to make sure that you know how to clean satin shoes properly.

An important tip is to make sure that you use a soft cloth for the job. You should avoid using a stiff brush as it can cause damage. This is because the more you dig in you will damage the small design of the shoe. Soft bristles and soft material is best for this job.

The basic rule is to try and remove as much of the dirt as possible from the surface. So, when you attempt to remove the dirt it will just attract even more dirt. So you must look for a way to neutralize the effect that diet has on the embroidery.

However if you are unlucky you will find that your satin shoes will leave a stain. In this case the only option is to apply a protective finish over the shoe. There are several products on the market that will do this job for you.
