How to Wash Isotoner Slippers (All Types)

In short: All Isotoner slippers are machine washable, no matter the style. Simply toss them in the washer with cool water, add in mild laundry detergent, then air dry away from heat.

Isotoner slippers are made with high-quality materials (microsuede, microterry lining, and gel-infused memory foam), but they need cleaning from time to time. Here’s how:

How to wash Isotoner slippers

No matter the style, all Isotoner slippers are machine washable, as long as you use mild detergent and cold water on a gentle cycle. They should be air-dried and not be put in the dryer.

To protect the microsuede, microterry lining, and gel-infused memory foam of Isotoner slippers, you should use a mild detergent. We recommend using this mild, yet powerful detergent.

1. Wipe down the soles

Before you toss your Isotoner slippers into the water, it would be wise to wipe down the soles first, especially if you have worn them outdoors. This extra step ensures the best result.

The easiest way to clean the soles is to wipe them with these baby wipes (they are infused with gentle soap). Doing so will prevent mud and dirt from circulating in the wash water.

2. Pre-treat stains

Heavy stains are tougher to remove, even inside the washing machine. If your Isotoner slippers have food stains or heavily soiled areas, like the interior soles, please pre-treat them first.

Use a dab detergent to break apart stains. Rub the detergent into the stained area with a soft-bristled brush. Allow the detergent to work for at least 10 minutes before washing.

If you have trouble removing the stain, use a heavy-duty detergent that contains enzymes to help break down the stain. Rub the detergent into the stained area with a soft-bristled brush. 

3. Machine wash the slippers

Once the soles are clean and stains have been pre-treated, it’s time to toss your Isotoner slippers into the washing machine. Add them to a load of similar colors and fabrics.

Set the washing machine to a gentle cycle with cold water, then add the correct amount of detergent. You can also choose to use a shoe laundry bag to protect your Isotoner slippers.

Once the washing cycle is complete, you should air dry the slippers away from direct sunlight or extreme heat sources. If you must dry them in the dryer, make sure the heat is not too high.

4. Hand wash the slippers (another option)

If for some reason you cannot or do not wish to use the washing machine, another method to wash your Isotoner slippers is to hand wash them in a sink or bucket. 

Start by filling a sink or bucket with cold water. Add one capful of mild detergent or follow the product instructions. Mix everything together until the liquid inside becomes sudsy.

Add the Isotoner slippers to the soapy water and allow them to soak for at least 40 minutes to lift the soil. Gently squeeze the solution through the slippers and then drain away the soapy water.

Fill the sink with fresh water and rinse the slippers until no more soap bubbles appear. Gently press out excess water. Roll the Isotoner slippers in a thick towel to help absorb water.

5. Air dry away from heat

Whether machine or hand-washed, Isotoner slippers should be allowed to air-dry completely. Reshape the slippers and allow them to rest in a well-ventilated area to dry.

You can also stuff the slippers with paper towels if you are worried about them holding their shape. Don’t use newspapers because the ink may stain the inside of the slippers.

Be sure to replace the paper towels often until the slippers become dry. Never place Isotoner slippers in the dryer. Extreme heat can cause damage to the material. 

Key takeaways

Now you know how to wash Isotoner slippers. Be sure to wipe down the soles, and pre-treat stains, then wash the slippers with a mild detergent in cold water on a gentle cycle. Then, air-dry.

You can also choose to hand wash Isotoner slippers by creating a soapy solution of mild detergent and cold water inside a sink or bucket. Wash the slippers until they are clean.
