Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

is there any way that you can remove all those little lint balls that you get on the insides of your kicks???
i have it really chronic on my jordans but i do actually play basketball in them so that could be the problem..

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

who do you play ball for?

read timbo's guide at the start of the thread.. he says about trying to use a vaccuum cleaner or one massive ass sticker to pull them off.

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

use stickers to get most of it off,

rest just use fingers, sorry you gotta put the elbow grease in sometimes

I have teh penises.

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

I use a battery powered lint remover to get them balls off. Looks like a small cheap electric shaver.

soapy water and bleach on the laces.

shoes are for losers

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

sevenone shit nice job with that.

you say no worries but that looks like it took determination haha

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

I find that after cleaning / 1st stain proofing giving leathers, plastics and foams a light spray (really light) and rub over with tyre shine (silicon based) makes it easier to remove stains etc and fend off some shit.

It also works much better on your car dash then armour all etc, does not leave that residue or make plastics as dependent on constant re-applications.

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

Canvas material


Take a same approach as to cleaning mesh?

Re: Cleaning/Restoration Thread Help

i'd say so.
canvas is more durable so if you clean them like you would clean mesh, im sure nothing will go wrong
