A Complete Guide on How to Clean Kids Shoes
Parents know that when it comes to their kid’s shoes, it’s no secret that they take a lot of damage. Furthermore, kids shoes deal with a multitude of challenges on a daily basis. From food stains during meal time, to grass stains from playing in the field, to scuff marks from the playground. Kid’s shoes are on the front lines and have to deal with everything from mud to paint. As most parents know, maintaining their kid’s shoes is a task that is likely intentionally overlooked. However, despite the initial feeling of hesitation you may feel, knowing how to clean your little ones’ shoes will help make this task a simple one to undertake. Here at Shoe MGK, we put together a guide for parents to learn some key tips on how to clean kids shoes.
Protecting New Shoes
The first step a parent can take to maintain their kid’s shoes is to treat them with a water and stain repellent. Directly after opening a new pair of shoes, spray the entire shoe with water and stain repellent spray. Shoe MGK Water and Stain Repellent has twenty years of proven success and will help keep shoes cleaner, longer. In fact, applying a repellent is a cost-effective step to prevent shoes from getting damaged or absorbing additional dirt. Once the shoes have been sprayed, they need to be given 24 hours to allow for the spray to cure. After the curing process, the freshly cleaned shoes are ready to be worn.
Shoe Cleaning Preparation
Preparing for cleaning shoes does not require a great deal of space. However, we recommend a water-resistant surface, as water may drip on it during the cleaning process.
These are the recommended items for the shoe cleaning process:
- A flat surface
- A bowl of clean water
- Shoe cleaner
- Shoe brush
- Microfiber towel

Before the shoe cleaner is applied to the shoes, it is important to use the shoe brush to scrub away as much of the dry dirt and dust that is on the surface as possible. Keep in mind that the more thorough of a cleaning with the shoe brush, the more effective the shoe cleaner will be.
Dip brush into a bowl with clean water and get brush lightly wet. Then, apply a small amount of shoe cleaner to the brush and scrub the entire shoe with lather. Finally, wipe the dirty foam dry with a clean microfiber towel.
On average, a pair of children shoes does not take very long to clean or dry. Kids put their shoes through a high amount of damage, and a little effort goes a long way to help maintain their appearance and durability.
