One of life’s greatest indulgences is a decent pair of house shoes. They provide support where you most need it, keep your toes toasty, and aid in winding down after a hard day. With all this in mind, developing a close bond with a favorite pair makes sense. All house shoes eventually need to be changed, which is only natural. You may need to clean them if they are only lightly scuffed, a little dusty, or somewhat discolored but otherwise in good condition. You know what slippers are and if you can wash them in the washing machine.

Why You Should Avoid Washing Machine For Washing Slippers?

Do slippers fit in a washer? It depends, is the brief response. A conventional washing machine with cold or warm water and a gentle cycle may be used to wash certain fabrics like cotton and terry cloth. As long as your slippers don’t have thick rubber bottoms and are made of one of these fabrics, like our happy face slippers, you may be able to throw them in the wash and let them air dry. But generally speaking, it’s advisable to refrain from washing slippers in the same machine as your house shoes. Most of the time, spot cleaning or hand washing footwear will be sufficient to avoid the material shrinking and protect your drum from harm.

The washing machine should  not be used to clean rubber soled slippers, suede house shoes, or types with shearing or fake fur inner. I adore pajamas. Until the temperature becomes too high, I wear them almost daily before switching to flip-flops. But when you think about it, wearing slippers is kind of disgusting. It’s comparable to always wearing the same pair of socks without ever washing them. So what should a girl wearing fluffy slippers do? I will suggest you to avoid using washing machine for this since they would destroy the rubber soles and soft, fluffy inside. Naturally, I went to Pinterest to check if there was any information on how to wash slippers.

I only found instructions for cleaning the exterior since most pins were dedicated to washing uggs. The only recommendation for the inside was to deodorize them with baking soda. It is a bit difficult to notice in pictures, but that cream colored fluff has some black stains.

For your viewing enjoyment, check out this even more disgusting closeup. You understand. The interior is hard and flattened, and the toes are filthy and have an unpleasant black hue. The days of wearing fluffy, plush slippers are over. It is unbelievable that I have had soiled slippers on for three months. Anyway, here are some solutions!

Cleaning Slippers

You’ll require:

  • In a mixing basin, put two cups of warm water.
  • Squirt dawn dish soap
  • Hand blender
  • Water-filled spray bottle
  • Blow dryer
  • Bread soda
  • Comb

Steps to take:

To generate a foam, add a spray of dish soap and blend with a hand mixer. I discovered that placing the mixer in the bowl all the way produced bubbles, but placing it in the bubbles caused them to whip into a more stable froth. Work the foam into the slippers to clean them using a brush or simply your fingertips. To remove the foam, softly mist the surface with some water. Avoid soaking the inside. Dry the interiors using a hand drier set to low or cold, then manipulate with your fingers. Sprinkle baking soda inside after it has dried to neutralize odors further. Work the soda through the inside with a comb. Shake out the excess after letting them settle for a time.
