Keeping your kicks clean has always been an essential part of the sneakerhead culture. Unfortunately, with the recent restrictions in movement and the list of essential services doesn’t include sneaker cleaners, sneakerheads have to rely on products found around the house to keep things fresh. That said, not all household products were designed to take care of your sneakers, with coarse particles and high acidity, which damage and decolourise. These household items include dishwashing liquid, bleach, cornflour, baking soda, toothpaste and even just soaking in water. Sneaker Lab delivered some of its high-end, all-natural cleaning products before lockdown, allowing me to keep all my sneakers looking their best, smelling their best and protected.
Cleaning your sneakers from the comfort of your own home doesn’t have to be a tedious or challenging experience. The Sneaker Lab Premium Kit a range of products for the complete solution. The products include the signature Sneaker Lab sneaker cleaner, the odour protector, the sneaker protection spray, as well as a premium hardwood brush. The Sneaker Cleaner is an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable cleaning solution, which cleans your sneakers at a microscopic level for up to three days after its application. The odour protection spray is a water-based formula, which is absorbed into the fibres of the fabric to give your sneakers a long-lasting invisible barrier against smells within the shoe. Spray the sneaker protection, water-based solution to protect the exterior of your shoes against dirt and dust wherever you go.
Sneaker LAB shoe care expert, Cody Felix, says about the product line: “Most chemicals or products found in the pantry will damage the fabric of your shoes or turn them yellow. This process can only be reversed by using harsh chemicals that will irreversibly damage your kicks. Instead, turn to Sneaker LAB’s range of products, which are safe for use on all fabrics and work at a microscopic level to clean, care for and protect your sneakers. It is far easier to prevent your sneakers from turning yellow than to try to get them back to their original colour again. Sneaker LAB offers natural cleaning power, that works.
