I’m not much of a cleaning person. I like to just enjoy the outdoors and to enjoy my clean-ness. But this past spring, the idea of cleaning my birkenstocks came up, so I cleaned them after playing winter sports and then I bought some cleaning supplies and started cleaning them.
I just love cleaning, and birkenstocks are my favorite outdoor accessories. They’re not nearly as fun to clean when you have to wear them, but they’re the perfect size and shape for almost any surface, and they don’t take up a lot of room. While they’re not as flashy as, say, a pair of jeans, they’re still a great way to clean your outdoor clothes without having to think about it.
Now I know you’re thinking, “but it looks like they’re made out of plastic!” but they are actually cloth. And because of that, they’re also much easier to clean. I know birkenstocks are not the most common outdoor apparel out there, but just because I love them doesnt mean I cant find more uses for them.
In the video above, they talk about how birkenstocks are made from natural fibers, which are stronger and more durable than synthetic fibers. This is a huge plus especially if you live in a hot climate.
They use the most common natural fibers to make birkenstocks. The ones that are the least common are cotton, nylon, and silk. Cotton has the longest life of any fiber and is very durable. Nylon is a softer fiber that does not need to be washed as often. Silk is a very inexpensive fiber made from water-soluble thread that is very easy to find, so it is great for making clothes for summer.
Birkenstocks are a good alternative in hot climates because they don’t take up much space. They are also fairly cheap. The only downside is that they won’t wash well. So it’s best for your home to have a big tub of hot water just to make them more comfortable when you get home.
I guess so, but I still would recommend keeping them in a bowl of warm water. You can use hot water to gently clean them a little. Then use a hot dry cloth to keep them looking nice. And you can always throw them in the wash once in a while.
Of course, the other downside is that if you do it too often, you could start to see little holes develop. The best way to prevent this is by using a spray bottle with a big nozzle, so that you can pour the water into the hole and slowly drip the water out.
There’s also one more thing to keep in mind if you live in the mountains. If you’re in a wilderness area or a mountain area, it’s fine to just water it down. But if you’re in the countryside or in a forest, you may need to use some water. Because the water goes into the ground, it can damage your body. You can use it for a couple of days or so to get rid of the damage.
This is a great way to clean out those birkenstocks that you have left over from the previous game too. It also works well for those really dusty ones that you got on your last trip, which may not come back from the dryer.
