4 steps to clean Kizik shoes

Kizik shoes require proper cleaning and maintenance and you have to follow these given below steps: 

Step 1: Remove Insoles and Laces:

Start cleaning by removing laces and insoles from the Kizik shoes to prevent the accumulation of moisture and dirt.

However, if the shoes come with fixed insoles that are impossible to remove then you need to be more careful while cleaning the interior.

Step 2: Make a Mild Soap Solution:

Now is the main step of the cleaning which is the formation of the soapy solution that is often a low potency detergent and lukewarm water.

As there is no accurate amount of soap and water but you have to mix them in almost similar amounts and stir them properly.

For some leather shoes, a cup of warm water and soap is enough but for not all shoes. So be sure to check the cleaning instructions. 

Step 3: Scrub Away Dirt:

After preparing the cleaning solution, take a soft brush, dip it in the solution, and start scrubbing the dirt. As it is easy to handle it can work better on small areas and multiple materials.

For many materials, gentle scrubbing in a circular motion is necessary otherwise rough scrubbing may damage the shoes. However gentle scrubbing may avoid wearing and tearing of the shoes while removing dirt and grime.

Step 4: Rinse and Dry:

Take a clean cloth to wipe away the soapy solution residue as well as loose dirt. Never run your Kizik shoes under direct water. 

After rinsing, dry the shoes using a paper towel and keep them in a dry and ventilated place away from the sunlight.
