If you’ve ever cleaned your shoes — especially white ones — you know firsthand that it’s a complete chore. Also, depending on your shoe’s main fabric, those deep-set stains are hard to remove, if at all.

Thousands of shoppers say one product perfectly protects their shoes from stains while keeping white shoes white with no yellowing or fading: the Jason Markk Repel and Repel Refill Shoe Protector Spray.

Here’s how it works. The Jason Markk Repel spray forms a colorless, strong, and breathable barrier on your shoe to repel stains and liquids. Best of all, it’s safe to use on all materials, including suede, nubuck, canvas, nylon, cotton, knits and more.

The water-based spray is also odorless and colorless and has no toxic odors or harmful dyes that can imprint or transfer onto your shoe. It also won’t alter the look or feel of the material.

The Jason Markk Repel and Repel Refill Shoe Protector Spray emits a fine mist combined with continuous spray functionality to cover large areas quickly and evenly in all directions.

When you’re ready to use it, hold the bottle upright 6 to 8 inches away from your clean, dry shoe. Spray evenly, covering the entire surface area, but don’t oversaturate. That’s it! Before exposing the shoe to liquid, ensure it’s completely dried.

Also, this protector spray doesn’t just work on shoes. It also does the same job on other items made with absorbent materials like headwear, backpacks, bags and more.

The best-selling Jason Markk Repel and Repel Refill Shoe Protector Spray has Amazon editors’ stamp or approval and over 2,000 reviews on Amazon. One of the most frequent comments is that it’s a perfect solution for keeping white shoes white with “no yellowing” at all.

WOW does this stuff work!” one five-star reviewer wrote. “It works so well that I bought a second pair of white sneaks and I wear both pairs all of the time. My shoes stayed sparkly white — it was my laces I had to wash.”
