3 Shoe Care Tips to Know

Posted by Clean Rite on January 18, 2021

Shoes are an everyday clothing item for many, but they’re also an investment in your feet and personal style. With a little bit of TLC, you can make a pair of shoes last much longer — which can save you quite a bit in the long run. Here are our quick shoe care tips we think you should know:


#1: Wash Them in the Laundry

Nope — we’re not kidding. 

Many shoes these days are 100% washable, and this can be a great shortcut to keep them around longer. We recommend checking your shoes for washing/care instructions, or contacting the brand to see what they suggest. If your shoes are washable, place them in a tied up mesh bag, and let the machine do the work. 


#2: Keep the Inside Clean

The inside of your shoes is where the magic happens, but they’re also the part that can deteriorate the fastest. And since we don’t often take a look inside our shoes, the damage can also go unnoticed. 

So how do you care for the inside of your shoes? There are actually quite a few ways:

  • Always wear clean socks
  • Invest in deodorizer sprays/packets that help remove moisture
  • Purchase insoles, and replace them regularly
  • Wipe down the insides occasionally with a vinegar/water mix

And of course, it’s always helpful to get a professional to clean them for you. While not all laundromats clean shoes, there’s a good chance they can point you in the right direction. 


#3: Store Them Safely

Having a designated space for your shoes can go a long way in making sure they stay fresher, longer. Even a simple shoe box can act as a convenient way to keep your shoes out of sunlight or away from family pets. 

Of course, you can also go a step further and create closet inserts to keep everything neat, organized, and off the floor. That’s a luxury — but we can at least recommend a simple shoe rack or designated spot on the closet floor.
