How To Wash Sheepskin Slippers in One Easy Step


You want me to replace my comfortable, old slippers? Can't I just clean them?

That's a conservation that has taken place in many a room. Above is a picture of my slippers. They are perfect. Nice and broken in. My wife knows to not get me a new pair. 

Yea, I know they do not look that bad; but, that's because they are chocolate. It hides the months and months of use.

Ok, you really need to clean them or she said she will get me a new pair.

So, how does one clean sheepskin slippers.

Washing sheepskin slippers is not something one needs to do often if at all but I get asked this question a lot.

If they are really sheepskin, in the skin itself is a natural oil called lanolin. The lanolin naturally kills bacteria and dust-mites keeping one's slippers clean naturally.

So I could say that one easy step is don't clean them! 

But if you need to wash them do not throw them in the washing machine, unless you really don't deserve nice things. 

The best way to clean them is to spot wash the leather/suede with a damp cloth or use a gentle brush and a mild detergent to get the spots out without drowning the slippers in water.

In most of our slippers and boots the insole is removable for ease of cleaning. 

For cleaning the inside, remove any hair or other unwanted particles from inside that has accumulated in the bottom of your sheepskin slippers.  Then pour a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid or some of our sheepskin shampoo on a damp washrag and scrub the insides of your slippers. Ensure you do not use too much soap or the insides will get too soapy and it will be hard to clean it out.

Then use a rag that absorbs moisture and pat them to absorb the moisture. Set them aside to completely dry. Do not put them in the dryer or in the sun. And that does not mean you can use a hair dryer unless you want to ruin them.

Oh, if they just smell, an easy and much faster way to handle the smell is to sprinkle some baking soda in them directly or put the baking soda in a light sock overnight to absorb the odor.

Got it!
