Reshoevn8r Cleaning Kit: How To Use – Video
Reshoevn8r Cleaning Kit
How is the packaging?
The packaging is very impressive, sleek, and easy to travel with. The design is very simple cardboard style with white Reshoevn8r branding. As with most cardboard it can be recycled, good to see that Reshoevn8r is being environmentally friendly.
The items are wrapped in a peel-away sleeve that has the direction of use information, contents, and a warning disclaimer that states; “Reshoevn8r is not responsible for direct, indirect, incidental or consequential damages resulting from any defect, error or failure to perform using this product.”

Reshoevn8r Cleaning Solution
How to use it?
For suede or nubuck, a suede-specific sneaker cleaning kit works better. The brush provided as part of the Reshoevn8r Original Kit might not produce the best result.
The Reshoevn8r Original Kit requires 7 simple steps:
- Fill a bowl with water.
- Add 4-5 drops of cleaning solution to the water.
- Dry brush shoes to remove dust.
- Dip brush into water and solution mix, shake to ensure it is not oversaturated.
- Scrub the shoe gently in a circular motion. Clean half a shoe then dip the brush back in the mixture to clean the other half.
- Use a microfibre cloth to wipe away excess cleaning solution and water.
- Repeat the process until your sneakers are fresh and air dry shoes for 24 hours.
How long does it last?
The cleaning solution comes in a 118ml clear plastic bottle with Reshoevn8r warning that it will irritate the eyes. Great as you can see how much is left. It is unclear what the expiry date on the bottle is or the shelf life of the solution.
The number of cleans you can get from a single bottle is hard to determine all depends on how much you use.
When the Reshoevn8r shoe cleaner was tested found that 4-5 drops of cleaning solution were enough to clean half of a shoe only. So to clean a whole shoe focus on one side first and then once that side is done dip the brush back into the mixing solution and gently scrub the other side.
Using 4-5 drops of cleaning solution works well and it is enough to clean a pair of sneakers however halfway through you might need to swap the water.
Does the Reshoevn8r cleaning solution work?
Yes, depending on the type of material you clean and the type of stain the cleaning solution will perform differently. While testing the Reshoevn8r Original Kit found it works best on leather sneakers. After repeating the process stains in the stitching did not come out however; the shoes cleaned were really dirty.
The fragrance in the solution smells sort of bland and I didn’t get that freshly cleaned sneakers smell. The cleaning solution works well as you can see from this pair of Nike Air Force 1 Low Supreme “White” on which the product was tested on.
Soap comes from 100% natural coconut and jojoba oils.
Reshoevn8r Medium Bristle Brush
Medium Bristle Brush Measurements
|3.6 inches (90.1 mm)
|1.5 inches (39 mm)
|1.6 inches (40.5 mm)
If you have medium to large hands the brush does feel big enough to firmly grip with one hand and clean your shoes properly. The bristles are on the soft flexy side however on a leather upper sneaker they managed to remove dirt and stains. The softness of the bristles did not chip away at the heat-stamped red Supreme logo.
Is the sneaker cleaning brush good?
Yes, the Reshoevn8r medium bristle brush helps to lift dirt and stains that have sunk into leather sneakers. The cleaning solution works well with the brush on leather sneakers very well. Be mindful that the amount of dirt or type of stain on your shoes will require different cleaning steps and techniques.
Reshoevn8r Sneaker Wipes
Are the Reshoevn8r Sneaker Wipes good?
Yes, the textured raised dots cleaned the pair of Nike Dunk Low UCLA very well by removing all of the drink stains on the leather upper. The 6 wipes provided as part of the cleaning kit, are very durable, and even after harsh cleaning of the midsole the wipes never ripped.
How to use it?
- Tear open the package.
- Gently wipe shoes with a smooth surface.
- If dirt remains, use the rough textured side.
- Repeat until your sneakers are clean.
Water and Reshoevn8r Cleaning Solution.
Wipes are not recommended for suede and nubuck.
Pocket-sized shoe wipes are ideal for travel. Would recommend using the sneaker to wipe the smooth and textured side, giving different cleaning surfaces that are ideal for leather. One wipe could clean at least 2 pairs of shoes without having to use a new pack.
If you are looking for a sneaker cleaning kit that has eco-friendly packaging, includes sneaker wipes, and works well at cleaning leather this kit ticks all the boxes. The amount of cleaning solution you use depends on how dirty your sneakers are 4-5 drops should be enough.
- Eco-Friendly Packaging – We all need to do our bit to save the planet and the fact the Reshoevn8r kit is made from cardboard and can be recycled is a bonus.
- Travel Wipes Included – The wipes are amazing when we tested them they removed all the dirt and stains. And not to mention they are included as part of the cleaning kit other brands are sold separately.
- Medium Bristle Brush – The brush is well designed and big enough to be able to grip comfortably with one hand.

I’ve been reviewing, buying, selling, and rocking sneakers since high school. Learned a lot since my first pair when I was 7 years old were And 1s (if you know you know). A lot has changed since the brand started in 2017 from reselling sneakers to now reviewing and writing informational content. The aim is to be authentic and honest with my opinions. Saucedby Lee out 🙂
