STEP 1 | DIRT REMOVAL
Brush your sneakers with a suede cleaning brush to remove excess dirt. It is important to remove as much dirt as possible so that it does not becoming trapped in the suede during the next stages. Don’t over brush the same spot in otherwise yoi might damage the nap surface of the suede.
STEP 2 | CLEAN
For intense cleaning we recommend cleaning Saphir Omni Nettoyant cleaner. Pour the required amount of cleaner into a container and dilute with water. Work the solution with a small brush into a lather over the shoe. Rinse the brush bristles with water and brush the surface again. Leave to dry for six hours. Brush the suede with the a suede crepe brush to revitalise the original surface texture and patina.
STEP 3 | REFINISH
Use Saphir Suede Renovateur spray to restore the colour and refinish you suede sneakers. Choose a suitable colour that matches your suede or use a neutral colour spray. Cover an outside area with newspaper and also stuff your shoes with newspaper to protect the lining from being stained. Spray the Renovateur evenly at a distance of 25cm from the surface of the sneakers and leave to dry for 15 minutes. Brush with a crepe suede brush to obtain a perfect finish.
STEP 4 | PROTECT
As a final step we recommend applying a water repellent treatment on your sneakers to prolong the life and maintain the appearance of the leather. Use Saphir's Super Invulner Spray to provide a protective barrier. Its neutral colour is suitable for all colours. Use once a month and apply in a well ventilated area, preferably outside, from a distance of 12"-18" and allow 30 minutes to dry.
