Fur sandals are a stylish and comfortable footwear option for many people, but they can be a bit of a challenge to clean.
Unlike traditional sandals made of leather or synthetic materials, fur sandals require a bit more care to keep them looking their best. But don’t worry! With the right tools and techniques, cleaning your fur sandals at home is a cakewalk.
In this article, we’ll go over all the steps you need to keep your fur sandals clean and looking like new.
Whether you have a pair of fluffy fur sliders or a more traditional sandal with a fur trim, these tips will help you keep your sandals looking their best.
So let’s get started!
Materials to Assemble
You will need the following materials in order to clean your fur sandals at home.
- A soft-bristled brush or a lint roller: These can be used to gently remove any dirt or debris that is stuck to the fur.
- Mild soap: Use it to gently clean the fur. Avoid using harsh detergents, as they can strip the natural oils from the fur and cause it to become dry and flaky.
- Warm water: To mix with mild soap.
- Clean cloth: You will need at least two clean cloths for blotting and removing soap from the fur.
- White vinegar: This can be used to spot clean stains on the fur.
- Fur conditioner (optional): This can be used to add extra shine to the fur after cleaning. Be sure to choose a conditioner specifically designed for fur. Conditioners designed for pet hair are also applicable. SEE HERE
By having these materials on hand, you are ready and equipped to clean your fur sandals at home with no issues.
Deep Cleaning Of Your Fur Sandals
If your fur sandals are entirely stained and in a harsh state, you should consider giving them a deep cleaning to restore their full shine.
It might seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite easy with the right tools and techniques.
Here’s how to do it:
- Brush off any excess dirt or debris from the fur. You can use a soft-bristled brush or a lint roller to gently remove any dirt that is stuck to the fur.
- Mix a solution of mild soap and warm water. Dip a clean cloth into the solution and gently blot the fur, taking care not to soak it.
- Blot the fur and remove the soap using a second clean cloth. Be sure to blot thoroughly, as any soap residue can lead to drying and matting of the fur.
- Allow the fur to air dry once you have removed as much of the soap as possible. Avoid using heat sources such as a hair dryer or placing the sandals in direct sunlight, as this can cause the fur to dry out and become brittle. Instead, put your sandals in a ventilated area like a window.
- To add extra shine to the fur, you can use a conditioner specifically designed for fur. Simply apply a small amount to a clean cloth and gently rub it into the fur.
With these simple steps, you can keep your fur sandals looking clean and fresh. Consider deep cleaning your fur sandals every 3 to 4 months.
Just be sure to be delicate when washing, as rough cleaning can damage the fur.
Spot Cleaning Of Your Fur Slippers
If your fur sandals have any stains, you can try spot-cleaning them with a mixture of water and white vinegar.
Dab the mixture onto the stain with a clean cloth and blot gently until the stain is lifted.
Then allow the fur to air dry. You can apply a little bit of a fur conditioner solution to give your sandals some shine.
Spot cleaning can be done whenever you stain your furry sandals or sliders. Just don’t wait long to avoid the dirt or stain sticking and damaging your fur.
