How to keep Patent Leather Shoes Clean

  1. I apologize if this has been asked and answered before, but does anyone know how to keep patent leather shoes clean?


    I was wondering if there is something I can spray on them to keep their shine and to prevent them from get scratched/dirty.

    Thank you.
  2. There is actually a cleaner lotion for patent leather.. your cobbler should be able to supply some..

    The sprays I used to waterproof them actually left some "rainbow" grease spots even though the can said it can be used on patent leather. However, the cleaner lotion cleans the rainbow and now I just clean my shoes every now and then.. no more protective sprays..
  3. Wipe them down with a cloth. That's always worked for me!
  4. I use a paper towel to clean out streaks and stains and it generally works. After reading the post above, I am going to try to find a cleaner or lotion for patent leather. I didn't know this was an option.
