How to Clean Your Merrell Shoes

by Kallie Johnson ; Updated September 28, 2017

Merrell designs shoes for outdoor enthusiasts. They manufacture several different styles and designs for men, women and children, such as hiking boots, sandals and shoes which feature no shoelaces. Merrell shoes should be cleaned as needed to remove dirt and stains.

Place the shoes outdoors. Brush the Merrell shoes with a shoe-cleaning brush to remove mud and dirt. If needed, remove the insoles of the shoes and shake out any dust and dirt.

Place a squirt or tbsp. of a mild, liquid cleaning soap into a bucket. The mild cleaning soap can be a mild liquid laundry detergent, dish soap or hand soap. Fill the bucket with a gallon of warm water.

Dip a clean cloth or rag in the soapy water. Squeeze to remove excess moisture. Wipe the shoes with the damp cloth. Scrub as needed to remove stains. Continue cleaning the entire surface of the shoes, including the soles, until the shoe is clean.

Dampen a clean cloth or rag in cool water. Wipe down the shoes to remove any soap residue.

Allow the shoes to air dry. Repeat the cleaning process if stains remain.
