Sneaker Cleaning Kit

How is the packaging?  

Right from the jump, the packing isn’t very exciting its bulky, easily cracks and the items inside are not secured firmly. However, none of the items inside the packing were damaged. The outer Squeaky Clean branded box peels at the top and a slide-out white tray that shows the cleaning items.  

What’s included? 


  • Ready-to-use cleaning foam.
  • Wooden handle brush. 
  • Microfibre Cloth 

Ready-To-Use Foam Solution


How to use it?

Do not use on suede or nubuck found that using a suede-specific sneaker cleaning kit works better. 

In comparison to sneaker cleaning kits that require you to mix water with the cleaning solution, only the foam is needed.

The Squeaky Clean solution requires three simple steps:

  1. Dry dust sneakers, bags, or hats to remove the top layer of dirt. 
  2. Squeeze foam from the bottle directly onto the brush. 
  3. Brush in a circular motion until the dirt has been removed. 
  4. Use a microfibre cloth to wipe away the excess foam. 
  5. Repeat the process until your sneakers are fresh. 

How long does it last? 


The ready-to-use liquid foam comes in a 200ml pump action plastic bottle. Crease Protect states that the foam cleaning formula has a 3-year shelf life. Each bottle is labeled with an expiry date.  

The amount of cleans you can get from a single bottle is hard to determine all depends on how much you use. 

When the Squeaky Clean foam shoe cleaner was tested found that 3-5 pumps of foam 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 squeeze more foam onto the brush and scrub the other side. 

Only using 3-5 pumps of the foam starts to fade and it’s less effective in removing the dirt and stains. To clean a pair of sneakers you need a minimum of 15-20 squeezes of foam. 

Does the ready-to-use foam work? 


Yes, depending on the type of material you are cleaning and the type of stain the foam will perform differently. While testing the squeaky clean premium shoe cleaner kit found it works best on leather, synthetic leather, mesh, fabric, and flyknit sneakers. 

The fragrance in the solution smells nice a bit like shower gel but the smell can get a bit overwhelming, make sure the room is well ventilated. Definitely leaves your trainers smelling better than they did before cleaning. 

Squeaky Clean Foam Ingredients:

  • 5-15% anionic surfactants 
  • 2-benzisothiazol-3(2h)-one
  • 2-methyl-2h-isothiazol-3-one



Squeaky Clean Brush Measurements:  

Length3.2 inches (80.5 mm)
Width1.6 inches (40.6 mm)
Depth1.2 inches (30 mm)

If you have medium to large hands the brush does feel small and it is hard to get a firm grip. But the bristles are stiff enough to clean properly and remove dirt make sure you scrub gently. The stiffness of the bristles can chip away at paint or damage suede try to be gentle in these areas. 

Is the sneaker cleaning brush good?  


Yes, the Squeaky Clean Kit brush helps to lift dirt and stains that have sunk into leather sneakers. The foam solution works well with the brush on leather, mesh, fabric, and flyknit sneakers. Be mindful that the amount of dirt or type of stain on your shoes will require you to repeat cleaning process. 

Microfibre Cloth 


Is the Microfibre cloth good? 

The microfibre cloth is low quality in terms of how it feels, thin, and isn’t very large in surface area. Just by looking at it, you can see through the microfibre cloth and when wiping down the shoes not all the foam is removed. 

Would recommend using a different microfibre cloth for the cleaning process, the one provided isn’t up to scratch in my opinion. Having felt the cleaning cloth it’s clear to see that it won’t last very long if you have many sneakers to clean or plan on keeping them for a long time.   

The surface area of the microfibre cloth is reasonable it measures 28 x 30 cm which was more than enough to clean a pair of sneakers when we tested. 


If you are looking for a sneaker cleaning kit that is budget-friendly, easy to use, and works well at cleaning different trainers. From testing this product we reckon it would easily clean 50-80 pairs of sneakers if used moderately. 

  • Budget Friendly – At the price for all the sneaker cleaning kits tested it was the cheapest. However; the only thing that lets it down is the packaging and microfibre cloth. Improvements could be made to the quality of the microfibre cloth, one provided is good enough to clean a limited number of pairs.
  • Easy-To-Use – Very simple to use this kit requires no water and the foam depending on how often you use it could last you 6 – 9 months if you are cleaning your sneakers at least twice a month.
  • All essential items included – No need to purchase anything extra to help with the cleaning process, which is a bonus. The 200ml ready-to-use foam solution is slightly bulky to travel with in my opinion and works best at home.
