To clean them you can use leather products or you can go natural and use distilled white vinegar with a small amount of olive oil. If stained or very dirty, you can use baking soda with water.
Can I paint my ice skates?
You can easily paint your ice skates before an ice skating competition. With either option, all you need is some paint, creativity, and embellishments.

Can U skate with rusty skates?
Rusted ice skate blades prevent you from enjoying your time on the ice and may even make it impossible to skate. Left untreated, rust continues to damage the blades, forcing you to invest in a new pair. Fortunately, most minor rusting can be removed using elbow grease and a professional skate sharpener.
How long should ice skates last?
At best, figure skates last about 20 to 25 hours on the ice before they need sharpening — less if a skater likes her blades particularly sharp, or if something goes wrong. During the regular season that’s usually not a problem; events last a few days and then skaters disperse to their home shops.
How do I clean the inside of my ice skates?
First remove the insoles after each practice or game, and hang them up to dry, making sure they dry completely. Then, using either a solution of vinegar and water or a sports gear odor neutralizing spray, spray down and thoroughly wipe out the interior of your skate.
What paint to use on skates?
I highly recommend Angelus leather paints. (Yes, you can use these on PVC/Vinyl too!) Apply paint with a paint brush or an airbrush. If you’re interested in airbrushing your skates, but don’t want to buy an expensive airbrush rig, Preval spray guns are a great, cheap option.
Can I use coke to remove rust?
Get rid of rust: If you have any rust stains or tools covered in rust, Coca-Cola will eat away at the rust for you. Leave the rusty object submerged in Coke for an hour or overnight and then scrub off the rust. Wet the grout with Coke and let the area sit for a few minutes before wiping with a clean cloth.
