HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY SNEAKERS?
It depends on how often you wear them. It's better to clean them lightly on a regular basis (once a week, for example) than to clean them less often but more thoroughly, which could also shorten their lifespan.
DO I NEED TO USE WATER WHEN CLEANING MY SNEAKERS?
Yes, you do. Once you have sprayed the cleaning solution, dip the brush into a bowl of water and brush gently.
SHOULD I USE COLD OR WARM WATER?
Lukewarm water is recommended. Use cold water for specific stains such as blood or grass stains. Use hot water to remove inset stains or to whiten materials such as canvas, knitwear or knitted fabrics.
WHAT IS BASCKET SNEAKER CLEANER MADE OF?
Bascket cleaning solution is made of water, vegetable and mineral substances,
and corn-based surfactants.
WHY ARE MIDSOLES AND PLASTICS YELLOWING?
Some parts of your sneakers such as soles made of rubber and/or plastic release plasticizers and coalescents which, over time, react with the natural alkalinity of the soil and turn the sole yellow. As UV radiation can amplify this process, it is highly recommended to avoid direct sunlight when you store your sneakers.
CAN I PUT MY SNEAKERS IN THE WASHING MACHINE?
I will let Nike answers this question:
"Nike does not recommend washing shoes in the washing machine. Properly hand-washing your shoes is the best way to ensure they won’t be accidentally harmed in the process. Plus, it’s possible to damage your washing machine by washing bulky items, like sneakers, inside. The best way to clean sneakers without damaging them is to brush them with a mild cleaning solution and let them air-dry."
Sneakers are mainly made of delicate materials such as suede, nubuck or leather, which can be damaged if too much water is used.
CAN I USE THE DRYER TO SPEED UP THE DRYING PROCESS?
It is strongly recommended to avoid any source of heat such as radiators or dryers to avoid damage to your sneakers.
