Whether you’re a runner who needs extra cushioning or you just want day-to-day support, Dr. Scholl's offers many types of inserts. Next to your feet, they understandably may become dirty or begin to smell from sweat and body oil. A quick wash, whether they're gel or cloth types, will clean them and get rid of the odor.

Video of the Day

Step 1

Fill a bucket with ½ gallon of warm water, then add three to five drops of dish soap. Mix the soap and water with your hands.

Step 2

Place the inserts into the soapy water. Swish them around for about a minute, using your fingers to scrub the inserts to remove dirt. Let the inserts soak in the water for five minutes.

Step 3

Take the inserts out of the soapy water and rinse them under running water until all traces of soap are gone.

Step 4

Lay the inserts flat to air-dry completely before putting them back into your shoes.

Tip

  • Replace your shoe inserts every six months, or sooner if they begin to show signs of wear.

Warning

  • Avoid washing the inserts in the washing machine, because the agitation from the machine can ruin them.
