How to clean your insolesUpdated 5 months ago

This is designed to give you general instructions on how to clean your insoles. Some products and materials may not be suitable for use with these instructions. Please refer to the manufacturer's instructions if you have any questions.


What you'll need:

  • A mild soap or detergent.
  • Warm water.
  • Two washcloths.
  • A soft-bristle brush, if necessary (for tough stains).

Steps:

  1. Mix a small amount of soap with water. You don't want the solution to be overly soapy or sudsy, so just use enough soap to clean effectively without leaving too much soap residue.
  2. Dip the washcloth in your soap-and-water solution. Wring the washcloth out almost completely. You want the cloth to be damp, not wet.
  3. Gently scrub the insoles to remove dirt and stains. For tougher stains, gently use a soft bristle brush.
  4. If the washcloth begins to dry out, repeat steps 2 and 3.
  5. Run your second washcloth under clean, warm water. Again, wring it out almost completely.
  6. Use the clean washcloth to wipe off the insoles, which will help remove any residual soap or dirt.
  7. Air dry the insoles in a well-ventilated spot. If necessary, drip dry the insoles if they absorbed water during the cleaning process.

A few things to be aware of:

  • Most insoles should not be submerged in water. You should avoid holding your insoles under running water and avoid letting them soak.
  • Do not machine wash or machine dry your insoles unless the manufacturer's cleaning and care instructions specifically permit it.
  • Using a firm brush or any other firm cleaning tool could damage your insoles.
  • Some chemical cleaners may damage your insoles.
