How To Clean Rubber On Shoes


Rubber on shoes often get dirty, scuffed and stained and can detract from the overall look of your footwear. Fortunately, cleaning rubber on shoes is relatively easy and can be done with a few simple tools. Here are some steps you can take to clean your rubber shoes and make them look like new again.

Preparing the Shoes
Before you begin cleaning your shoes, it is important to make sure all dirt, dust and grime are removed. Use a soft cloth or brush to clean any dirt from the rubber on the shoes. If there are any scuffs or stains, use a damp cloth to remove them. Allow the shoes to air dry for 10-15 minutes before continuing.

Cleaning the Shoes
Once the shoes are dry, you can begin cleaning them. Many rubber shoes can be cleaned with a mild soap and warm water. Mix a few drops of soap into a bowl of warm water and use a soft cloth to gently scrub the rubber parts of the shoes. Make sure to get into any crevices or grooves. Once you have scrubbed the shoes, rinse them with clean water and use a soft cloth to wipe them down. Allow the shoes to air dry for 10-15 minutes before moving on to the next step.

Polishing the Shoes
Once the shoes are dry, you can begin polishing them. Start by applying a small amount of shoe polish to a soft cloth and rubbing it into the rubber parts of the shoes. Continue to rub until the entire rubber area is covered. Use a clean cloth to buff the shoes and make them shine. If desired, you can apply a small amount of waterproofing spray to the shoes to help protect them from dirt and stains.
