Footwear Care

Care for your Old Friend® Footwear

 

Although there are many methods of cleaning slippers, some may be damaging and permanent.  To keep your Old Friend® Footwear in the best looking condition these are the methods that we have found to be most useful.

Any soaps or products of any kind should be used in the lightest concentration possible as they may result in discoloration of your footwear.

 

DO NOT PUT OLD FRIEND® FOOTWEAR IN WASHING MACHINE OR SUBMERGE IN WATER!

 

Leather

  • Clean the leather with a damp cloth and warm water or diluted, mild leather detergent.
  • Rinse cloth out and rub again, try and remove moisture immediately with a dry cloth.
  • Leather cleaning kits are also available (can be found at your local shoe repair store); you can gently use the kit’s eraser on troubled spots, and then rub with a stiff brush.

  • Do not use a blow dryer or heater if they get wet, air dry inside and away from sunlight. 

 

Sheepskin 

  • Gently rub sheepskin fleece with a wet cloth and mild detergent, repeat with warm rinse water and remove moisture with a dry cloth.
  • Brush fleece lightly to renew nap.
  • Always air dry your slippers in the shade, never in direct sunlight.

  • Sheepskin can also be freshened with baking soda.
    • Sprinkle baking soda over fleece, let it stand overnight, and shake or vacuum the powder out the next day.
  • You can also spray lightly with an anti-bacterial spray.
    • Let spray dry before using slipper again.
