How to Clean Leather Shoes with Household Items
Posted by Mekenna Malan on
Between winter salt stains, scuffs, and everyday wear, it was definitely time for us to clean up our leather shoes. You too? You're in luck! Shining those leather shoes up like new is unbelievably easy and can be completed in less than five minutes with items you've already got at home.
Glass cleaning spray
Mix a bit of dish soap into a small bowl of water. Dip the microfiber towel in the mixture and use it to gently wipe any visible dirt or salt stains off the surface of the shoe.
Add baking soda to the water and dish soap mixture and stir it up with the toothbrush. Use the toothbrush to scrub the soles of the shoe until no visible debris remains. Wipe away the soap and grime with the microfiber towel, or carefully rinse off the sole of the shoe under running water.
To enhance shine, mist window cleaner onto the shoe or microfiber towel. Shine and wipe dry.
Look at that before + after! Repeat steps on the other leather shoe. When you're done, be sure to set shoes out to dry away from direct sunlight or heat.

Hello, can you tell me if the Elvis Boots (black) should be treated/sprayed with all weather protector, before wearing? Also, when it’s time to clean them as shown in your video, should O repeat and respray after cleaning? Thanks!
