How to clean your rangers?
Before waxing your rangers, it is essential to clean thoroughly. Indeed, a good cleaning makes it possible to prepare well for the next step. First, use a soft cloth to quickly dust off the shoe. Then, using a brush with stiff bristles, clean them with a little lukewarm water in order to remove the remaining soil residue.
For waxing, use a suitable wax to apply with a brush (different from the one for cleaning). Let them dry naturally before buffing with a cloth or pantyhose until a uniform shine is obtained while removing the excess leather.
