With daily use, sneakers get dirty very quickly, both the surfaces and especially the soles and midsoles, which causes them to lose their original appearance very quickly. With so many different models on the market, made from different materials and combinations, it can be difficult to know which product is the most suitable to effectively clean the surface without damaging the shoe, especially if they are made of delicate leathers or suede. At Tarrago we have different specific cleaners for each type of need. If you have doubts about which one is the most effective or suitable for your sneakers, whether they are white, leather, suede, synthetic, or combined, in this article we explain which one you need and how to use it.

The best natural sneaker cleaner

If you need a cleaner that removes all dirt without damaging the materials, and also contains natural and effective ingredients, we recommend our Sneaker Cleaner, which has 95% natural ingredients and also conditions because of its coconut oil. It can be used on all types of leather, suede or synthetic materials. The bottle comes in a handy spray bottle, so you just spray the shoe, brush the entire surface with a sneaker cleaning brush such as our Sneaker Brush, and rinse with the Sneakers Cloth, ensuring you get the best result and remove any residue that may remain. If you don’t have a brush or cloth, you can buy our sneaker planet friendly cleaning kit which includes the cleaner plus accessories, and a protector to make your trainers last longer.

The world’s most powerful cleaner ideal for white trainers

If you have white trainers, you already know that it’s almost impossible to keep them looking that way for long. With WASC cleaner, not only will you clean them, but it also has a white-enhancing effect, so they’ll look brand new. It’s also ideal for cleaning mid-soles. It can be used on all colours, as it enhances them without modifying them, so don’t worry if your shoes have other shades, it will leave them all clean and bright. To do this, spray the entire shoe with the product and rub with a sneaker cleaning brush as many times as you need. Rinse and wipe off with the cloth and let dry… good as new! This cleaner can also be used on backpacks, hats, leather or synthetic accessories to enhance colours, especially white. You can see a video of how to use it and the results in the following link.

Cleaning canvas or textile Sneakers

Supergel Cleaner is the ideal product for effective cleaning of canvas or textile shoes and even smooth leather. It is a dense, soapy solution, which you mix with water and apply with a brush, scrubbing the entire surface to remove the dirt. This cleaner can also be used in the washing machine, thanks to a special component that does not damage the glue of the soles of the shoes, using the cap as a measure, and pouring a little less than half in it, to avoid generating too much foam. You can see a video of how to use it and the results in the following video link.

Specific cleaner for mid-soles

To clean the midsoles, which always accumulate dirt that is difficult to remove, especially on porous soles, we have the Midsole Cleaner, a cream product, presented in a jar, which should be applied to the entire surface with a flat brush, avoiding touching the surface of the shoes, especially if they are made of suede or nubuck, to avoid damaging the material. Tape can also be used to cover the area close to where we will work, in order to avoid possible damaging. Once applied, wait 3 minutes, and brush with a damp stiff bristle brush, such as the Sneakers Brush, to scrape off all the dirt. Remove with a damp cloth.
