Nikwax - Sandal Wash
Easy to use deodorizing cleaner for all non waterproof footwear, including shoes, sandals, insoles and footbeds. Sandals are designed to be worn next to skin, keeping your feet cool in warm conditions. They can be constructed from various materials including leather, fabric, synthetics, cork, rubber and plastic.
Wearing sandals with bare feet will lead to a build up of dirt and body oils on the sandal surface. In turn this will encourage the growth of bacteria, which cause smelly sandals after a few days use, especially in hot conditions. The same issue will apply with footbeds over time, even if you’re wearing socks. Additionally, if sandals are not adequately cleaned, bacterial growth will also lead to decomposition of the sandal materials and stitching. This is especially common in natural materials such as leather and cork as they are broken down by bacteria for nourishment, leading to them rotting and reducing the useful lifetime of your footwear.
Nikwax Sandal Wash™ is a highly effective cleaner and deodorizer which has been specifically designed and optimized to clean and deodorize all non waterproof footwear, including shoes, sandals and next to skin areas of footwear, such as insoles and footbeds.
Once your sandals have been used a few times and are starting to smell, use Nikwax Sandal Wash™ to clean, deodorize and freshen. Always apply this product to all non waterproof footwear, including shoes, sandals and next to skin areas of footwear, such as insoles and footbeds to keep them in top condition. Recommended for CrocsTM, Birkenstock®, Keen® and TevaTM footwear.
