How to clean Birkenstock Boston Clogs

Do you wear your Birkenstock Boston Clogs on a daily basis? Are they dirty and grimy from days, months, or years of wear? This article is for you.

Kick those feet up and take some notes: This is how to clean Birkenstock Boston Clogs with RESHOEVN8R. 

Essential Kit

The only kit you need to clean any Birkenstock sandal or shoe!

Dry Suede Kit

Use this on suede Birkenstocks!

Step 1: Clean the Upper with the Soft Brush

Birkenstock Boston Clogs come in multiple varieties, so we've broken down this portion of the cleaning process by material! 

For Leather Birkenstock Boston Clogs:

For Suede Birkenstock Boston Clogs:

  • Use the Eraser from the Dry Suede Kit to erase small stains and dirt.
  • Brush the suede with the included Medium Brush to remove eraser shavings and surface dirt.
  • If needed, use the Soft Brush and Solution to gently clean any deeper stains. Note: Wetting the suede too much may cause damage. Use as little water & Solution as possible.

Step 2: Clean the Footbed with the Medium Brush

The cork footbed on the Birkenstock Boston Clog is notoriously hard to keep clean. The RESHOEVN8R Medium Brush proves a great solution to this problem. 

  • Dip the Medium Brush in your Solution & water and scrub the footbed until clean. 

Step 3:  Scrub the Sole with the Stiff Brush

  • The Stiff Brush is reserved for cleaning soles. Scrub the sole with the Stiff Brush to complete the preliminary cleaning. 

Step 4: Condition your Leather or Suede with Mink Oil

RESHOEVN8R Mink Oil is a leather and suede conditioner. Apply a thin coat to your Birkenstock Boston Clogs to preserve the premium materials. 

  • Spray a light coat of Mink Oil directly onto the leather/suede from 6-8 inches away.
  • Brush the Mink Oil into the material with soft brush. 
  • Wipe off any excess Mink Oil with the Microfiber Towel.  

Mink Oil should only be applied in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT APPLY INDOORS.
