Whether you’re hiking at your local park or simply hiking around retail stores, keeping your shoes in tip-top condition can be a challenge. Whether you wear sneakers everywhere or have a shoe for every occasion, you’ve probably looked down at your footwear at some point wishing they looked a little cleaner. We know we have!

Luckily, no matter what material your shoes are made of, there’s a genius cleaning hack you can try. Check out the video above to see our favorite tricks in action and keep reading for all of the details.

If your leather shoes are in need of some TLC, try nail polish remover to get rid of any grim and then rub the inside of banana peels on the leather for some added shine. And if you have any patent leather shoes, a little spritz of glass cleaner can polish them right up. However, if you’re looking to spruce up your suede shoes, skip the nail polish remover and glass cleaner and use a Magic Eraser.
