My favorite neighbor has gotten me addicted to Mini Melissa shoes. They are very cute stylish, comfortable shoes that are supposed to be Eco-Friendly. For me, it started with a pair of pink bows, and now I have about seven pairs in 2 different sizes.

Everything was going fine until I picked my daughter up from school with a horrific stain on her Darth Vader Mini Melissa shoes. I was so upset and could not imagine what could have made such a stain. Obviously, stains are bound to happen when kids are involved.

Mini Melissa Shoe Cleaning

The best way to spot clean the Mini Melissa shoes is with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I am a huge fan of them. They saved my white bag and had used it to clean tough to budge stains. They work great on everyday dirt and even some stubborn stains. I look over the Mini Melissa’s ever few days to ensure there are no stains sitting for too long.

After a dirty play in the grass or sand, I give the Mini Melissa’s a full service clean. I start by scrubbing any stains with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Then, I spray the food beds with the Oxy Clean Laundry Spot Cleaner and let sit for 10 minutes. Next, I heat water in the jars in the microwave for 2 minutes so that it is not quite boiling. In each jar dissolved a 1/2 cup of Oxy Clean Detergent. Submerge the shoes in the large jar and let soak for 1 hour. Rinse with cool, clear water and let dry in a shoe rack (formerly a bottle rack).

If you have a stubborn stain that doesn’t come out during the process, you can try this tactic. I have only done it on white Mini Melissa’s so far. I cannot promise that this will work on other colors. Lather the 10% Peroxide Acne Medication in a thin layer over the stained area. Leave outside in the sun in 15-minute increments. Clean it off with a white paper towel and water.

How to Clean Mini Melissa Shoes Everyday

My daughter gets her shoes pretty dirty and sandy every so I like to clean them almost every time she wears her Mini Melissa shoes. I wash the shoes in the sink to get the sand and dirt out of the shoes. Then, I go over the shoes with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You can also wash the shoes in the  washing machine on low, cold water, and no spin. I usually put them in with a white towel so they don’t get thrown around too much.

  1. Hello!

    Pretty random but is there any chance you are going to sell those Mini Melissas when your little outgrows them? I have been looking for a pair of size 7s for our Disney trip in February!
