Cleaning and washing is critical in the shoe finishing process.
It is the first step before applying other finishes to leathers.
The general purpose of a cleaner is to remove antique, cement, dirt, grease and other contamination from the shoe before finishing.
Washing is more aggressive than cleaning.
It is ideal for stripping finish for re-craft.
