The basic of all care is to remove dust by careful brushing. Use bar cleaner for white sole of casual shoes.
Care as if you care your skin. Cleanse off dirt and cream you applied the last time, and go back to your “face without make-up”.
Polish / finish
Apply shoe cream evenly. Wrap cloth around your finger and use small amount of cream each time. After you are done polishing, brush to blend.
After brushing, evenly apply waterproof spray. Use deodorant/antibacterial spray for antibacterial steps.
