Which detergent should you use when washing the slippers?

A neutral, mild wool detergent will help to prolong the lifespan of your favourite wool Slippers or any other piece of clothing.

Using a neutral, mild detergent, that is preferably LE KAPMOZ recommended, should be your go-to when hand washing or machine washing wool clothing.

Avoid using heavy-duty detergents, “Bio” detergents containing enzymes, or any detergents containing bleaches. Never use bleach, either chlorine or oxygen based, when washing wool.

If powdered detergents are used, it is always best to pre-dissolve the detergent prior to adding to the wash. This helps to prevent concentrated specks of detergent from coming into contact with the shoes, which may cause holes.

Final rinse softeners or conditioners can be used, but care should be taken to keep the amount down to minimum. Excessive amount of softener can lead to the formation of pills during subsequent washes – this is because softeners tend to act as a lubricant
and enable fibres to move out onto the surface of the slippers more easily.

Wash and Care

Machine 40°C (or 30°C) mild wash

This washing cycle ensures a much reduced mechanical treatment. Reduce the quantity of laundry in the washing machine. The drum should be not more than one-third full. It’s best to use a cycle for wool or delicates for these garments

Hand wash

Hand wash at a water temperature between 30°C and a maximum of 40°C, depending on the particular article. First dissolve a fine wool detergent in plenty of water. Allow the clothes to float in the solution and agitate carefully. Do not rub, pull and wring
out. Then rinse the clothing well and press the superfluous water out carefully before pulling the item into shape. Treat coloured and sensitive pieces rapidly and do not leave lying in the wet state.

After washing your wool slippers, it is recommended the slippers is carefully dried flat. To carefully flat dry wool slippers it is recommended it is placed on a pale colored or white towel, and one which is free from lint.
