Our Bubble slides are a popular footwear choice due to their comfort, style, and unique bubble design. However, like any other shoes, they require proper care and maintenance to keep them looking fresh and in good condition. In this guide, we answer some common questions about caring for your bubble slides. Let's dive in and learn the best practices for cleaning and maintaining your favourite bubble slides!
Can Bubble Slides Get Wet?
Bubble slides are 100% EVA foam. While they are designed to withstand regular wear and tear, it's important to note that excessive exposure to water can damage them. It's best to avoid prolonged submerging in water as this can cause the bubbles to lose their shape or the colours to fade. However, , walking in the rain, wearing at the beach and even showering in your bubble slides (I have a pair for gym showering) are perfectly fine.
How to Wash Bubble Slides
Cleaning your bubble slides regularly helps remove dirt, grime, and sweat, keeping them looking fresh and hygienic. Follow these simple steps to wash your bubble slides effectively:
- Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water.
- Add a small amount of mild detergent or liquid soap. Avoid using harsh chemicals or bleach, as they can damage the materials.
2. Spot Cleaning:
- Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the soapy water.
- Gently scrub the surface of your bubble slides, paying extra attention to any stained or soiled areas.
- For stubborn stains, you can use a soft-bristle toothbrush to scrub gently.
- After cleaning, rinse the bubble slides under running water to remove any soap residue.
- Ensure that all the soap is thoroughly rinsed off.
- Pat the slides with a clean towel to remove excess water.
- Let them air dry in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
- Avoid using a hairdryer or any artificial heat, as it can warp or damage the materials.
Can You Put Bubble Slides in the Washing Machine?
While bubble slides can generally tolerate gentle washing, we don't recommend putting them in a washing machine. The agitation and high-speed spinning can be too harsh, causing damage or deformation to the bubbles. It's best to stick to hand washing, as described in the previous section, to ensure the longevity of your bubble slides.
Bubble slides are a trendy and comfortable footwear option that deserves proper care to maintain their appeal and extend their lifespan. Caring for your bubble slides is easy. By following the guidelines above, you can keep your bubble slides clean, fresh, and in great condition. Remember to avoid excessive exposure to water, opt for hand washing over machine washing, and allow them to air dry naturally. With these simple care practices, you'll be able to enjoy your bubble slides for many seasons to come!
