TAKING CARE OF YOUR TOOTSIES
Keeping Shoozies Clean
Disinfectant wipes are a great way to remove bacteria from the bottom of your shoes. We recommend a general “bubble wash” of dish soap and water after every wear using a toothbrush to get into the nooks and crannies. For lighter colored shoes, try a solution of baking soda and water. Shoes dislike moisture, so be sure they are completely dry (air drying preferred) before putting them back in the closet or box.
Beautiful (And Practical) Storage Included
We made our packaging aesthetically pleasing and extra-sturdy with the hope that you will reuse and keep for shoe storage. Always avoid storing your shoes in the sun or outside.
Many styles come with a protective film on the outsole and/or platform. This film can remain on the shoe for protection, or it can be removed for a fresh wear. We do recommend cleaning the sole with a mild dish soap and water after each film-free wear.
A packet of loose rhinestones will come with your purchase (just in case you shake what your mama gave you a little too hard). Clean the area with dish soap and water, and wait to dry. Then apply a light dab of superglue to the bottom of the individual rhinestone and reapply with tweezers (pro-tip: eyebrow tweezers work quite well … she who leaves a trail of sparkle).
SATIN FABRIC CARE
lighter colorways are extremely sensitive to stains, so we recommend using cheesecloth or a soft rag (preferably same color as the shoe) with mild dish soap and water. Make sure the soap is colorless, and softly move cloth in a light up and down motion in the direction of the fabric grain. We do not recommend bleach.
Anti-bacterial wipes work very well for clearing up any cloudy areas on a clear vinyl shoe. For removing stains and scuffs, we recommend using a toothbrush with white vinegar in gentle scrubbing motion. Dry with a clean rag.
VEGAN LEATHER CARE
For dirt and stains, use a soft cloth dampened with clean water and a splash of mild detergent. Apply gently in a circular motion, then rinse with warm water. Dry with a soft cloth and make sure no dampness remains before storing or boxing.
FAUX FUR CARE
To keep your slippers cozy and clean, handwashing will be the safest and most effective approach. Scrub outsoles to remove stains, and spot clean furry upper as needed. Using your hands (gloves recommended) or a toothbrush, gently rub any tough stains with a solution of warm water and a spoonful of colorless laundry detergent.
“Floofery” is shipped with feathers upright to protect the quality. Over time, the shape will settle. To get a specific shape or direction from the feathers (or simply extra “floof”) we recommend using a hot hair dryer.
Is susceptible to scuffs and sticky stuff. We recommend a few techniques in caring for patent leather:
Try a basic pencil eraser to eliminate the scuffDab a microfiber cloth or soft rag in mineral oil (Vaseline is also a good substitute) and rub directly on scuffed area. Leave oil on for about 15 minutes, then wipe off with dry cloth/rag completely. You can also try a mild soap and water, but use the water very sparingly. Avoid harsh chemicals that can discolor the patent leather or liquid-like polishes that will not absorb into the material.
Velvet & Vegan Suede
To best care for your velvet and suede shoes, a Scotchgard protector is highly recommended. In the case of dirt, use a soft bristled brush to gently wipe away any residue. Avoid water and moisture whenever possible; but in the case of stains, use a very small amount of water and baby shampoo to gently clean.
