I love slippers. I wear them just about every day, until the weather gets besides warm and I switch to flip-flops. But when you think about it, the estimate of slippers is a small gross. It ’ s like wearing the same couple of socks over and over but never washing them. YUCK !
indeed what ’ s a fuzzy-slipper-wearing daughter to do ? You can ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate toss them in the wash machine or the piano fuzzed insides will be ruined and the rubber soles will come apart. So, of course, I went to Pinterest to see if I could find anything about how to wash slippers .
Most of the pins were specific to cleaning Uggs, and all I found was how to clean the outside. The alone suggestion for the at heart was to use baking pop to deodorize them. then I found this post on 104 Homestead and it sounded like a feasible mind .
Yep. I ’ thousand airing my dirty laundry good here for the whole world to see. actually, it ’ s a small hard to see in photos, but trust me, there are some dark stains in that cream-colored hair. Whose estimate was it to make the inner of a skidder a fall color anyhow ? ! ?
here ’ s an even grosser closeup for your wake pleasure. So you get it. The toes are dirty and a nasty dark color and the rest of the inside is hard and flattened. The soft, bleary slippers are a thing of the past. ( I bought these for myself Thanksgiving weekend, so they look like this after three months. )
Gross. I can ’ thyroxine believe I ’ ve been wearing dirty slippers for three months. Anyway, here ’ s what to do about it !
How to Clean Slippers
What you’ll need:
- 2 cups warm water in a mixing bowl
- squirt (yes, that’s the official measurement) Dawn dish soap (I use the blue kind for all sorts of cleaning projects)
- hand mixer
- spray bottle with water
- hair dryer
- baking soda
What to do:
Pour 2 cups warm body of water into a medium mixing bowl. Add a pip-squeak of dish soap and mix with a hand mixer to create a foam .
I found that if I put the mixer all the means down into the bowl, it created bubbles, but if I put the sociable in the bubbles, it then whipped them into a more stable foam .
Using a brush or just your fingers ( that ’ s what I did ) work the foam into the slippers to get them clean. Spray lightly with a little water to rinse the foam off. Be surely not to soak the inside .
Using a hand dry on low or the aplomb set, dry the insides and oeuvre with your fingers. once dry, sprinkle inside with baking sodium carbonate to far deodorize. Use a comb to work the pop through inside. Let them sit for a while and then shake out the excess .
As you can see, they aren ’ thyroxine pristine and pure blank, but they are clean, soft and downy again, and I promise, they smell WAY better. No more malodor. I wouldn ’ thymine suggest this if it didn ’ triiodothyronine influence. Cross my heart. 🙂
here are some early great uses for Dawn dish soap that don ’ t include washing dishes !
