After experiencing a cold and seemingly endless winter, as the weather (eventually) heats up, it may be time for you to trust slippers. We have put together this guide so you can rest assured that your slippers will receive the cleaning they need without being damaged.

The first step in washing slippers is to find out what material they are made of, whether it is textiles (such as cotton), leather or suede. The distinction is important because each material requires a different technology.


1. Textile slippers

Textile slippers are perfect to treat your feet comfortably and can be easily washed to return to their previous glory.

Many textile slippers are machine washable, you can check the label inside the slippers to find out this information. But don't despair, if they can't wash or if you're not sure, just follow the steps below:

Prepare slippers (even if they are machine washable). You can wipe off the soles of your shoes with a damp towel to remove any loose dirt, and then pre-treat any stains with detergent.

If your slippers are machine washable, you can put them in the washing machine and let it do magic. Otherwise, fill the bowl or immerse it in warm soapy water and let the slippers soak for at least 30 minutes to lift up the dirt.

Pass the soapy water through the slippers, then immerse them in warm, clean water to wash off the soap.

Wrap the slippers with a dry towel to absorb excess water.

Finally, leave the slippers in a dry place, and lightly fill the slippers with a paper towel to reshape the slippers (do not use newspaper, because the ink will run and stain the slippers).

Warning: Never use a tumble dryer to dry slippers, as the heat will dissolve the adhesive and damage the footwear.

2. Sude slippers

Sude slippers are the eternal favorite of many people, but when it comes to cleaning them, it can be a bit of a minefield. Whether you choose moccasin or zongzi, the following simple steps will make the slippers look (and smell) like new:

Wipe off any loose dirt on the bottom of the slippers with a lightly damp towel. Use a suede brush to gently wipe the upper part to remove any surface dirt. Use cornstarch to treat stains to absorb excess grease and oil (treatment is best immediately after dyeing occurs). If cornstarch does not work, you can try a professional suede cleaner and follow the product's instructions.


To refresh the cut-lined interior, sprinkle the lining with baking soda and use a suede brush to make sure it is thoroughly coated. Leave the station for a few hours, then suck up the baking soda. Let the slippers dry before putting them on.

Tip: Use a hair dryer in a cool environment to restore the bulkiness of the cut lining.

3.Leather slippers

Luxurious leather slippers are ideal for anyone looking for a luxurious indoor footwear experience. To maintain the quality of real leather slippers, it is very important to keep them clean. Use a soft, dry cloth to gently wipe off any dirt. Use warm water and a cloth (or even baby wipes) to clean the non-leather interior of the slippers. To prevent material damage, use leather-safe soap only on the upper part of the slippers.

Shine lightly with a soft cotton cloth.

Follow the instructions on the bottle and apply leather conditioner on top. This is a good way to extend the life of slippers and encourage the leather to age well. Let the slippers dry for a few hours before putting them on to prevent any stretching.
