How To: Clean Your TOMS

Hey guys!  The number one most asked question I get at work is how do I clean my TOMS?  Well.... it's pretty easy!  According to TOMS you should only hand wash your shoes.  Never ever ever put your shoes into the washing machine unless they are super old or super dirty and beyond normal wear.

What you will need: one 16 oz bottle with screw cap; small nail or something sharp and pointed; Sandal Life cleaner (can be purchased at any Tradehome Shoes); warm water

  1. Clean out the bottle thoroughly - use soapy water if the bottle contained anything except water.
  2. With the clean and dry bottle, put the screw cap back on.  Poke a small hole in the lid just big enough for water to come out.  Remove cap and set aside.
  3. Pour in 1/3 of the cleaner into the bottle, fill with warm tap water until the bottle is 3/4 full.  Replace cap.  Shake well with finger over the hole.
  4. Grab your dirty pair of TOMS.  Take the bottle and pour the solution all over the shoe - inside and out.  Make sure it soaks all the way through the fabric.
  5. Using a toothbrush or the brush that comes with the cleaner, scrub your TOMS.
  6. Rinse thoroughly and let air dry overnight in a warm area (or outside in the sun).
Your TOMS are now clean!  Store the solution at room temperature.  Reuse anytime your TOMS start to smell or are getting dirty.  I use this solution at least twice a month on light colors and once a month on darker colors.  Happy Cleaning!
