  • Tips on Cleaning that Medieval Footwear

    Posted on February 4th, 2011 admin No comments


    While we all know that it’s a lot more fun to collect your medieval collectibles than it is to clean them, it’s still important to make sure it gets done. A good way to make sure that they get cleaned regularly is to write out a schedule so you’ll know when it needs to be done. Keeping your collectibles clean and in showcase condition will help them to last much longer. While you’ll find a lot of information on the right way to clean helmets, shields and medieval swords, it’s hard to find a lot of details on medieval shoe cleaning. This article was written expressly to help you learn how to keep your medieval collectibles look their very best from your helmet to your footwear. We will even provide you with the information you need to know where you can go to purchase new medieval boots and shoes.

    But before we get to that, you should write out a cleaning schedule for your collectibles. You may need to clean your footwear very often, depending on how it is displayed in your collection. For example, if you store your medieval footwear in a glass display case, you won’t have to clean it as often as you would if they were stored in another way. You should try to clean your medieval collectible items about 3-4 times each year in order to keep them looking their best. Obviously, that cleaning rule would have to be changed depending upon your situation.

    Once you decide upon a schedule that works for you, you should then think about the type of footwear you have in your collection. This is important because you will need to clean leather materials differently than you would clean metal footwear or other materials. For example, your metal medieval shoe or boot collectibles should only be cleaned with a special oil or wax. If you have any leather pieces in your collection, you’ll need to use a special cleaner and preserver to clean it properly. Never use a wire brush or other type of rough cleaning tool on any type of footwear as they can become damaged very easily. Keep all of your footwear away from water as it will cause a lot of damage to both leather and steel collectibles.
