When you are searching for cleaners to care for your sneakers, you are taking a step in the right direction. However, that positive step can quickly go wrong if you blindly choose products without knowing the ingredients that make them up.
 
X shares natural cleaning productsDrugstore ingredients are often bad news for your health and for your shoes. Unlike organic or environmentally-conscious materials, these harmful cleaners use harsh chemicals to force your shoes clean.
l
Here at X, we prefer a gentler approach. Keep reading to check out the reasons we prefer to use natural cleaning products.

What's lurking in your drugstore products?

While heading to your local discount store may be convenient and cheap, when it comes to sneaker cleaning products, you may want to reconsider. While local retailers focus on access, this doesn't necessarily mean they promote the healthiest choices.

Harsh cleaners are bad for your health.

Sneaker cleaning products with strong chemicals only temporarily provide results when it comes to restoring color and shine.
l
Moreover, continuously using harsh cleaners over time causes dangerous chemical exposure. This can lead to issues like skin irritation, respiratory problems and eventually even serious diseases like cancer.

Luckily, knowing which ingredients   you need to avoid is half the solution.

First, stay clear of tetrachloroethylene, an ingredient commonly used in shoe polishes that doubles as an industrial solvent to degrease brakes.

Opt for natural cleaning products so you avoid harmful ingredients like tetrachloroethylene and nitrobenzene.


Next, nitrobenzene lends a pleasant almond smell to drugstore cleaners. However, it's effects are far from pleasant, sometimes causing blood to stop adequately carrying oxygen and decreasing fertility chances.

And, they aren't great for your shoes either.

In addition, harsh cleaning products are not just harmful to your body, but also to your favorite shoes.

Extended use will cause that temporary payoff to quickly fade, leaving your sneakers looking old and dull.

Moreover, the vitality of your sneakers suffers, with harsh ingredients causing additional wear and tear on your shoes.

Choosing to invest in natural cleaning products will save your body and shoes in the long run. After all, natural cleaning products don't come with a lengthy list of warning labels and side effects.

In addition, natural cleaning products also save the environment.

While harsh cleaners contain hazardous materials, natural cleaning products are readily biodegradable and don't leave a negative footprint behind when you're done using them.


 Unlike the hazardous materials in harsh cleaners, natural cleaning products are biodegradable and safer for the environment.


Which natural cleaning products does X offer?

X Sneaker Care offers natural cleaning products like a waterless foam cleaner and spray-on water and stain repellant to maintain the color and shine of your newly clean shoes.

Moreover, X Sneaker Care natural cleaning products stay true to the promise of being environmentally-conscious. They are 99 percent vegetable-derived, solvent-free and readily biodegradable.

The formula makes the products ideal for restoring leather, patent leather, rubber and synthetic fabrics and meshes without adding damage.

In addition, the exclusive kit includes two boar bristle brushes, microfiber cloths and a canvas carrying bag. 

The brushes are especially useful at dislodging stubborn environmental irritants while the microfiber cloths cling to dirt and grease and easily lift scuffs or stains.
