Get Ready To Spend Many Nights of Warmth in the Dead of Winter


If you happen to live in the Northern Hemisphere you are aware that we are in the depths of winter currently.

I just finished dinner, slipped back in my office to write this blog and realized man it's cold back here. Grabbed an alpaca sweater, already had on my sheepskin slippers, of course I slip those on as soon as I walk in the door. Now that is more like it. No need to turn up the heat.

As the temperature drops and winter sets in, it's time to bring out your cozy sheepskin slippers. These luxurious slippers are not only incredibly comfortable but also provide excellent insulation to keep your feet warm during the cold months. However, with the winter weather comes the challenge of keeping your sheepskin slippers clean and in top condition. In this blog post, we will share some expert tips on how to clean and care for your sheepskin slippers, so you can enjoy their warmth and comfort all winter long.

Why are sheepskin slippers prone to getting dirty in winter?

Sheepskin slippers are made from natural materials that can absorb moisture and dirt easily. During winter, when the ground is wet and muddy, it's common for your slippers to get dirty. Additionally, the natural oils in your feet can also transfer onto the slippers, leading to stains and discoloration.

How to clean your sheepskin slippers

Cleaning your sheepskin slippers is a delicate process that requires gentle care. Follow these steps to keep them clean and cozy:

Step 1: Remove loose dirt

Start by gently brushing off any loose dirt or debris from the surface of your slippers. Use a soft-bristled brush or a clean cloth to do this. Be careful not to scrub too hard, as it may damage the delicate sheepskin.

Step 2: Spot clean stains

If you notice any stains on your slippers, it's important to address them promptly. Mix a small amount of mild detergent with water to create a gentle cleaning solution. Dampen a clean cloth with the solution and gently dab the stained area. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing, as it can damage the sheepskin. Rinse the cloth with clean water and blot the area to remove any soap residue.

Step 3: Dry your slippers

After spot cleaning, it's crucial to dry your slippers properly. Avoid using direct heat sources like radiators or hairdryers, as they can cause the sheepskin to shrink or become stiff. Instead, stuff your slippers with clean, dry towels to help them retain their shape and absorb excess moisture. Leave them to air dry in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight.

Step 4: Brush and fluff

Once your slippers are completely dry, use a soft-bristled brush to gently fluff up the sheepskin. This will help restore its natural texture and keep it looking plush and cozy.

Additional tips for maintaining your sheepskin slippers

Here are a few extra tips to ensure your sheepskin slippers stay clean and cozy throughout the winter:

- Avoid wearing your slippers outside, especially in wet or snowy conditions. The moisture and dirt can damage the sheepskin.

- Store your slippers in a cool, dry place when you're not wearing them. Avoid storing them in plastic bags, as this can restrict airflow and cause the sheepskin to deteriorate.

- If your slippers get wet, stuff them with newspaper to absorb the moisture. Allow them to dry naturally, away from direct heat.

- Regularly brush your slippers to remove any dirt or debris and maintain their softness.

- To spot clean the suede you can use distilled white vinegar on a clean cloth or rag and wipe it gently on the suede to be cleaned.

- If there is an oil spot from one of your cooking adventures just rub the spot with white chalk and leave it over night. Brush off in the morning. If still there do that again. The white chalk will absorb the oil.

By following these expert tips, you can ensure that your sheepskin slippers remain clean, cozy, and in excellent condition throughout the cold winter months. So, slip into your favorite pair, relax by the fireplace, and enjoy the warmth and comfort of your well-maintained slippers.

Keep warm this winter!
