We have tested Saphir Renomat cleaning multiple sneakers. Renomat does a great job removing dark scuffs and stains that would seem otherwise untouched by traditional sneaker cleaners.
Renomat or Saddle soap?
The main difference between these two is that Renomat is great to strip your shoes from old and/or synthetic shoe polish. This cleaner contains just enough solvents to remove shoe polish without affecting the dye in the leather. Renomat is also a great stain remover and can be used on very specific points on the shoes. Saddle soap is a more gentle option compared to the Renomat, and is as the name already reveals a soap so you need to use this product with water. Saddle soap is great for when you want to scrub and wash an entire shoe that collected a lot of dirt.

How to use
We recommend using Saphir Renomat when removing dirt and old shoe polish. For example, if you want to remove a synthetic layer of shoe wax from your shoes, it is best to do this with Renomat. After that, you can provide your shoes with a fresh natural wax layer. Tip: To make sure that the leather of your shoe reacts correctly to the Renomat, we recommend that you first apply a small test amount to an inconspicuous area of the shoe.
For a treatment with Renomat you need:
• Saphir Renomat
• Cotton cloth (eg old t-shirt) or
• Saphir applicator cloth
1. Hold the cloth on the opening of the Renomat bottle and turn the cloth and bottle in one movement so that the cloth absorbs the Renomat. (Tip! Not much Renomat is needed to clean the entire shoe, so start with a small amount).
2. Clean the shoe with the Renomat by rubbing it over the leather with small circular movements. In most cases, two turns over one spot are enough to remove the old shoe polish. The cloth will get dirty/dark from the old layers of shoe polish quite quickly. Don't be alarmed by this, because this is normal and also the intention.
3. Wipe the shoes dry briefly after the treatment. Let the shoes dry for 5 minutes before continuing with, for example, a shoe cream or shoe wax.
