The best sneaker wipes to keep your kicks fresh, clean and germ-free
by R.K's Aroma on Jul 14, 2022
Sneakers have now become an integral part of our wardrobes. We wear them everywhere from going for a run to the grocery store and to the office too. Whether it is a $50 pair of Chuck Taylors or a $400 pair of common projects, and whether you prefer a casual worn-in or a brand new look, all kicks have one thing in common: THEY GET DIRTY! And there is no miracle thing that can prevent your sneakers from getting dirty. Unless you put a bag over them, there is really nothing out there that you can do. Dirt is dirt. If your hectic day keeps you on your feet all day, It will not take long to get dirt to appear, especially with shoes meant for active use.
Even though you cannot prevent your kicks from getting dirty, you can still clean them and make them look fresh and new. There are of course numerous capable cobblers and sneaker-cleaning specialists who can do it in just a snap of fingers. But, there are also many at-home cleaning methods (formulas, brushes, spot treatments, etc.) that only cost about a third of the price of a visit to a professional. One such cleaning method that you can do on the go is using SNEAKER WIPES.
What are sneaker wipes? Scroll down to learn more about them, they are essential for an on the go lifestyle, because there is nothing quicker than these quick fix shoe cleaning wipes.
What Are Sneaker Wipes?
What do you do to clean your shoes? Like many others, do you also throw your sneakers into the washing machine and hope for the best? If yes, please don’t do it. Your shoes come out of the machine looking worse than they were when you put them in. So, what should you do? You need a great product that can clean your dirty kicks without damaging them.
Sneaker wipes just like a facial wipe or a hand sanitizing wipe offer a quick and the easiest solution to remove mud, grime, and grass stains from your shoes. And with the coronavirus numbers being at worrying heights, sneakers wipes do double duty by wiping off bacteria and germs from your kicks to keep your house germ-free.
Because style is not the only reason why people want to clean their sneakers nowadays. According to the CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention), did you know your footwear can harbour bacteria, viruses and diseases, tracking them into your home? While some are resorted to using shoe covers, I recommend you to have the best sneaker wipes at the ready for staying vigilant (health and style-wise).
Most of these sneaker wipes are also travel-friendly, so you can easily stash them in your purse, bag, or pocket.
How To Choose The Best Sneaker Wipes
If you are looking for a sneaker wipe, then trust me finding the best one is like running in one place - you will exert energy but couldn’t get very far. With dozens of cleaners and cleaning wipes available in the market, we often don’t choose the right one as we don’t know exactly what we need. A good sneaker wipe revitalizes the material, removes dirt and stains, and restores the sneaker’s aesthetic without damaging and discolouring. Some products include a brush, and others come with a liquid cleaner.
So when you shop for the best sneaker wipes, keep the following three factors in mind -
Always look for sneaker wipes that are safe to use both for your sneakers and yourself. Look for the ones that are suitable for most fabric and materials including canvas, leather, mesh, knit, and vinyl.
The best sneaker wipes get the job done without too many chemicals as ingredients. Because harsh chemicals can create risk for your hands and small kids. So, make sure the shoe cleaning wipes don’t contain too many over-loaded chemicals.
If you would like to clean your kicks on the go, choose wipes that come in individually wrapped packages. So that you can clean quickly before arriving at someone else’s home, getting in the car after shopping, or after having a commute. You can also keep all the sneaker wipes at the front door so that you can use them immediately once you get home.
The Best Sneaker Wipes - R.K’s Aroma Sneaker Wipe (Effectual Essential)
Seeker Wipe are the premium shoe wipes from R.K’s Aroma that effectively clean almost any material, be it canvas, leather, mesh, nylon, sports shoes, synthetic leather, and even knit (for the Yeezy fans out there). But despite their cleaning powers, the R.K’s Aroma wipes are free of harsh chemicals and soap. Instead, the wipes use bio engineered bacteria (probiotics - the good kind of bacteria) to break down and wipe away grime.
R.K’s Aroma Sneaker Wipe pack contains twelve individually wrapped wipes, which make these wipes a good choice for slipping in your pocket, gym bag, or purse when leaving the house.
No need to mess up with sprays, foams, or brushes, you can simply wipe away the dirt and dinginess with these sneaker wipes. They are pre-moistened, thick and don’t leave any residue. They work well in taking out grass marks, dirt, scuffs and much more to keep your shoes look fresh and new.
Ingredients Used In R.K’s Aroma Sneaker Wipe
Shoe cleaning wipes that are made of harmful chemicals may do wonders in removing the dirt, but at the same time, they will damage the material of the shoe. Whereas, natural sneaker cleaning wipes allow you to easily erase years of built-in grime and dirt to restore the kicks to their original glory. The formula used in R.K’s Aroma sneaker wipe is made with 100% natural ingredients that are sourced from certified organic sellers. It contains -
We all know that baking soda and vinegar are the heroes around our houses for cleaning and accomplishing other household tasks. But, did you know there is another edible natural ingredient that can do wonders in cleaning dirt? Coconut oil is an extremely versatile natural ingredient that can help you with cleaning the most tedious ones.
The natural enzymes in the oil help you in breaking down stains and dirt without causing any harm to the material of your shoes. Coconut oil also contains lauric acid which has a host of antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. These antibacterial properties will also help you in wiping off the bacteria and germs that your kicks carry.
Potassium Sorbate is a nature-identical chemical additive that is widely used in drinks, foods, and personal care products to increase their shelf life. It is synthetically produced from sorbic acid (naturally found in some fruits like berries of mountain ash) and potassium hydroxide.
Himalayan Rock Salt
Whether you go to a local grocery store and a shopping mall, you can see Himalayan rock salt or lamps that claim to purify the air. There is no denying that this ingredient is trendy right now. The benefits it is offering go far behind its pretty aesthetic. Whether you consume it, add it to your bath, apply it to your skin or wipe clean any product, Himalayan rock salt can be good in a number of ways.
Himalayan salt just like table salt contains sodium chloride, but it also has up to 84 other minerals and traces of elements. The pure Himalayan salt is anti fungal, anti-bacterial, and antimicrobial. Therefore, it is really hard on dirt but very gentle on your shoes.
All laundry detergents and sneaker cleaners available in the market use “surfactants” to break down dirt, grime, sweat, and everything else you do not want on your shoes. These surfactants are derived from chemicals like diethanolamine, quaternion - 15, petroleum distillates and more which may cause skin irritation, liver problems and lung cancers. Keeping the health of the customers and their sneakers in mind, we at R.K’s Aroma only use eco-friendly and naturally derived surfactants like coconut oil in our sneaker wipe. Therefore, these wipes are not only non-toxic to sneakers but also are non-toxic to humans.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
No natural medicine cabinet or a green cleaning kit is complete without the tea tree essential oil. Made from the Australian tea tree leaves, the tea tree essential oil has been used by many professionals and therapists for hundreds of years to clean surfaces and treat cuts and wounds. The oil is a power source of anti fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that make it a safe cleaner.
Your shoes, especially the ones you wear for the gym, are a treasure trove for bacteria, grime, dirt, sweat, etc… So, it is a great idea to use R.K’s Aroma Sneaker wipe that contains tea tree oil to clean your shoes.
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is a natural ingredient that is extracted from the peel of fresh lemons using cold-pressing techniques. Lemon Essential oil is a powerhouse for cleaning almost everything. It works best for degreasing and removing stains & adhesives. In fact, Lemon essential oil is known to have a powerful ability to cut through anything. Not only this the fresh scent uplifts and reminds us of summer.
