Steps to clean your velvet shoes

The first step will be the most logical, start brushing with our soft bristle brush with caution and without pressing the shoe, focusing on the stains. It is important to always brush in the direction of the velvet weave.

The next step is to take an empty  liter bottle of water and fill it with warm water and then mix it with a tablespoon of detergent. Once the suds have been generated, rub gently over the stains, in favor of the velvet, again without pressing too hard.

Then wipe the shoe with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth and let it dry. If after drying, the stain has not disappeared, repeat the process.

For stains that are a little more difficult to remove, such as grease, use instant talcum powder. If you don’t have them on hand, when you get home, clean them with a little water and alcohol.

As a final tip, to prevent dirt or stains, it is best that every time you take off your shoes, brush them to remove dust and keep them in a shoe bag, this way you will avoid their deterioration and prevent them from getting dust or moisture.
