Today's post is not so much "how to" as FYI. Last fall I got a pair of furry lined moccasins better known as "winter time flip flops". I love them. They are easy to slip on and wear around the house but they are also appropriate for public use (even places besides Walmart). Unfortunately, the point is to wear them barefoot, and they end up like this:
I am not a filthy person so don't pretend like yours look any different.
I was terrified to try to clean them, but it had to be done (they smelled as bad as they looked). So, I prepared myself for their ultimate demise and threw them in the washing machine with a load of towels (I didn't want them banging around in case, by the grace of God, my kids took a nap). Here is what they look like now:
A little misshapen, but pretty darn good. I was really surprised at how well they washed up. The fluff is fluffy again, the dirty spots are gone but the best part?
No more stink!
