Spring Cleaning, Tips to Clean Your Chacos
Posted On: Thursday, April 18, 2013 - Chaconians
Well worn Chacos can show their adventures in scents. If your sandals are getting a little to fragrant here are some helpful tips to remove offensive odors.
Scrub the sandals—including the straps in + out of the footbed—in a paste of baking soda and water. Rinse with warm water, and place in the freezer (this kills the bacteria) overnight. Take them out, place them in direct sunlight and let them dry completely.
You can also throw them in the washing machine with your next load of laundry (cold water is best). Avoid bleach and do not put them in the dryer. Again, let them dry completely.
We do NOT recommend using the dishwasher. It can get too hot and cause the soles to delaminate. No fun!
