Step 1

Fill your sink with about 2 gallons of cold water and 1 tablespoon of delicate laundry detergent. Swish the mixture around with your hand to dissolve the soap.

Step 2

Submerge the socks in the water and gently massage or knead them with your hands for a few minutes.

Step 3

Lightly scrub the insides and outsides of the socks with a cleaning rag.

Step 4

Drain the dirty water and rinse the socks with clean, cold water until you have rinsed out all of the detergent.


Step 5

Squeeze the excess water out of the socks, re-shape them with your hands, if they've lost their shape, and place them on a towel to air dry.


Although some people toss their slipper socks into the regular wash, hand-washing in cold water and air drying is recommended for extending the life of your footwear.
