Happy Flip Flop Friday! How to Keep Your Flip Flops Looking Pretty

Hello Everyone! Happy Friday– and what a beautiful day it is here in sunny San Diego.  We haven’t celebrated Flip Flop Friday for a while so I figured it was time to get back on track with that–haha.  And what better way than to talk about how to keep your flip-flops clean.

Flip flops are my favorite “shoes” of summer. They are great for wearing to the pool,  the beach and just hanging out.  Now that the Fall season is upon us, have you noticed your favorite pair is getting a  little dingy? Here is how to bring them back to life and better than ever!

Instructions… here are a few options to get your flip-flops looking pretty again…

  • Start with plain soap and water and an old toothbrush. Remove most of the  grime with a little scrubbing.
  • Put them in the dishwasher. Do not wash them with dishes– use a gentle  cleaner when running your rubber sandals through the wash. Add vinegar and baking soda to the wash to do double  duty–cleaning your shoes and your dishwasher at the same time. (thrifty, right?)
  • Let your tub fill with water while you take a shower. Soak flip-flops  to loosen dirt, and scrub with a nail brush afterward.
  • Use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser as an easy way to remove grime from your flip-flops and  bathtub.
  • Try an oxygen cleaner and water to get stains off your sandals. You may need  to add the power of a scrub brush for maximum results.
  • Use steel wool pads with soap to get down and dirty with the grit in your  flip-flops. This method works best after soaking the sandals in a sink of water  for about an hour.

  1. this is interesting. i bet a well maintained pair of flipflops says a lot abt a person, kinda like a nicely polished pair of shoes. i look forward to reading more about your shopping escapades.

  2. Love this! Especially with the emergence of more expensive, quality brands of flip-flops such as Flojos or Havianas it’s important to take care of them so you can extend their life-span and save yourself some moolah.

    Love, B
