Canvas or Man-Made Material
- Brush or wipe off surface dirt with a dry, soft cloth. Check the area between the sole and the shoe for dirt that is trapped. Use a toothbrush to remove stuck dirt.
- Dampen another cloth and apply a small amount of hand soap to a corner of the cloth. Select a soap that does not contain added lotions or scents.
- Rub the dirt spot in a circular motion with the soapy cloth. Rinse the dirt from the cloth and check the spot. Keep rubbing the spot with the soapy cloth until the stain is gone.
- Gently remove any remaining soap with a clean, damp cloth.
- Stuff the canvas shoes with cloth to retain their shape and set in a sunny spot to dry.
- Remove surface dirt with a dry, soft cloth. This will prevent more dirt from being rubbed into the white leather loafer while cleaning.
- Clean marks with saddle soap applied to a damp cloth. Gently rub the mark until it is removed.
- Apply a leather conditioner to the clean loafer and allow it to dry. The conditioner will keep the leather supple.
- Spray the dry leather loafer with a leather protective spray. The spray will provide a thin coating to prevent water from penetrating the leather.
