Cream ones that were actually my wedding shoes but I wore them to another wedding on Saturday and of course they are covered in mud and grass stains. Will a dry cleaners do them?

I am a dry cleaner and I cna tell you we dont/cant clean shoes if that helps. Try something from Robert Dyas I am sure they sell something for cleaning shoes or maybe a cobbler?

our local ones will NOT do them. however, if you live near a dance shoe place they often have a shoe dying service and can dye them their original colour again (may not work)

When I was a ballet dancer we cleaner our satin ballet shoes with surgical spirit on a q tip. I hope that helps - don't get them too wet though...!

we never did that lovingthepink. The water stained the shoe!

Which is why we used a q-tip and then rubbed gently on the marks. Did it for years. I think the sugical spirit was alcohol so not too wet IYSWIM

There is a woman somewhere in North London who will do it. Winchmore Hill. I have number, and did it 5 years ago. How can I get it to you?
