The Nike sign on your shoes is made of plastic that is durable and coated in a gloss sealant. This gives it a shiny, glossy look. Sometimes the shine fades due to scuff marks, dirt and general use. You can keep this look for months if you take care of your shoes and clean the Nike sign with mild detergent and a brush.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Mix detergent in a bowl at a ratio of one part detergent to 100 parts water. That is about 1 tbsp. for a 1/2 gallon.
Dip a soft-bristle brush into the bowl so that the entire brush is coated in soapy water. Remove the brush and tap it on the side of the bowl to remove excess water.
Gently brush the front side of the Nike sign on your shoes, working the detergent water into the dirt or grease that is on the sign. Quickly remove any water which has dripped onto the shoe leather with a towel.
Continue to lightly scrub for a minute or so. Then wipe the sign clean with a towel. If the sign is not clean, repeat Step 3 until it is completely free of dirt and grime.
Tips & Warnings
Use gentle soap for mild dirt stains, and only use heavier detergents for darker stains.
Do not let water stand on leather Nike shoes. Have a towel ready to blot away water as soon as it drips onto the leather part of your shoes.
