Saturday afternoon I got caught in a very refreshing rainstorm on my way to see 20 Feet from Stardom (which I totally recommend, that is both getting caught in the rain and the film). My Dansko clogs were soaked. I let them dry on a windowsill when I got home, but things seemed a little funky when I put them on again on Sunday afternoon. When I removed them on Sunday evening it smelled like I'd been aging cheesy in those things. Yes, it was that bad!
To get them back on track, I used:
- about 1/4 cup water, room temperature
- about 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 cleaning cloths
- an old toothbrush
Here's what I did:
- I wiped the insides of the clogs with a cloth.
- I mixed the water and vinegar together in a cup.
- I dipped another cloth into the mixture, then wrung it out so that it wasn't dripping wet. I used this to scrub the insides of the shoes (footbed, inside roof). Some elbow grease was necessary. #realtalk
- I dipped a toothbrush in the mixture and used it to reach funky nooks and crankys.
- I let the shoes air dry completely overnight.
