Espadrilles are a summer footwear delight, but when the fiber soles get dirty, do you know the (espa)drill for cleaning them? Here are a few tips:
1. DO NOT put them in the washing machine or submerge them in water.
2. Let any dirt dry, and then wipe with a dry cotton cloth or use a vacuum to remove loose dirt.
3. Next, you can either A). spray a foaming carpet cleaner and blot the fibers with an absorbent cloth and a small toothbrush for any stubborn spots or B) dip a toothbrush in a mixture of 1 Tbsp of mild detergent mixed with 2 cups of water and gently scrub off the dirt.
4. Remove any excess detergent with a clean damp cloth.
