How do you wash hey dude shoes?
Hey! If you are reading this, it probably means that you have a pair of Hey Dude shoes. Well, if you’re like me and don’t want to ruin your favourite pair of black suede Hey Dudes by washing them in the washing machine then I’m here to save the day for ya. Just follow these easy steps below!
Put on rubber gloves (I used yellow ones because they were scented with lemon) so as not to irritate your hands while scrubbing.
Fill up your tub with warm water and add ¼ cup laundry detergent or baby shampoo (my personal preference is baby shampoo). Remove laces from the shoe so it will be easier to wash later on.
Place your shoe in the water and begin scrubbing (alternating between brushing the toe end, heel end, side panels, & stitching). Then place aside in a sunny spot or near the heater to dry.
Place laces back into your shoes so they don’t get ruined. And you are done!!! Keep in mind that this method will prevent the suede material from wearing away
These are three simple steps to washing your shoes. First, soak the shoe in water for 10-15 minutes before scrubbing it with a sponge or brush. Second, use dish soap and warm water to wash off any dirt on the shoe’s surface along with any debris that may have gotten stuck between its grooves. Lastly, rinse the entire shoe thoroughly under running water until all of the soapy residues have been removed from both sides of the fabric lining inside each shoe. This is an easy process that will take no more than 15 minutes total! Now you know how to properly care for your favourite pair of sneakers without damaging them by following these few important tips!
