Care instructions

TOFFELI shoes are 100% genuine wool and very easy to care for. With good care you can extend their life and take care of their life and beautiful appearance.

You can clean the dirt from the shoe's surface by brushing the surface with a scrub brush. If there are stains on the surface, you can remove tehm with a sponge and mild soap. In winter time you can ventilate the shoes outdoors, and in summer they can be refreshed with baking soda if necessary: ​​sprinkle baking soda on the surface, leave it on for half an hour and then vacuum it off.

Felt shoes should never be washed in a washing machine, and there is no need to wash them anyway. The wool used in the felt shoes is antibacterial material, and therefore the bacteria do not live in it. For the same reason, the wool material of the shoe won't smell easily.

Rain won't ruin felt shoes immediately, but it is important to dry them after use in case they get wet. If felt shoes are used repeatedly in rainy weather, their wool fiber will gradually begin to stretch and give up, or detach from the plastic sole.

Felt shoes dry well at normal room temperatures, but do not dry them in a sauna, as wool shrinks at high temperatures.

The advantages of EVA plastic are flexibility, softness, good weather resistance and chemical resistance. In addition, it has good thermal insulation properties and shock absorption.

It's recommended to keep felt shoes in a stable place without too much humidity. If the shoes are out of use for a long time, they can be protected with a plastic bag for or similar type of shoe cover.
