How to Wash Your Boots in the Washing Machine
Boots are an essential part of our winter wardrobe. They look chic and classy. However, due to continuous use, they can get dirty. It is very easy to use a front or top washing machine to wash your boots. To save your time and money here is an easy and quick step-by-step guide to washing boots.
1) Read the manual
Before you start washing boots, it is important that you carefully and thoroughly read the instruction manual of the cabin washing machine. The manual has instructions regarding the best way to wash your boots, depending upon their material and fabric. If the cabin washing machine cannot wash your boots, you can go for a toothbrush to dust off any dirt or use a damp cloth or towel.
2) Remove surface dirt
Before you place your boots in the cabin for washing, use a toothbrush or damp cloth to remove any stubborn dirt around the awkward part of the boots. You can also place your boots under tap water and scrub off the dirt. Doing this step will increase the washing machine’s efficiency in washing boots.
3) Prepare the cabin for washing
To prepare the washing machine for washing boots, keep the temperature cooler than 30 degrees to prevent the color from fading. This is a very important step, especially if you are washing PVC or PU.
4) Air dry
Once you have washed the boots, you should air-dry your boots as using a dryer can expose them to very high temperatures that will melt the glue holding the fabric together and ruin the boots. Instead, you should put the boots in a warm place where they can air dry over time.
Also, place some crumpled newspaper inside the boots when you leave them to air dry. The newspaper helps dry them quicker by absorbing excess moisture and helps maintain the shape of the shoes as they dry.
In a nutshell
Boots can become very dirty over time and may have different stubborn stains that won't wash off. However, you can use a cabin washing machine to wash off stubborn stains by following the steps mentioned above.
