Clog Care 101: How to Maintain Your Dansko Clogs

Regarding comfortable and durable footwear for healthcare professionals, Dansko clogs are the gold standard. These stylish and supportive shoes are a favorite among nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals. But just like any footwear, Dansko clogs require proper care and maintenance to keep them looking fresh and keep you feeling your best. Please keep reading for helpful tips on cleaning your Dansko clogs and keeping them in tip-top shape.

Wiping Away the Grime: Cleaning the Exterior

To keep your Dansko clogs looking their best, cleaning the exterior regularly is essential. Here's what you need to do:
  • Remove any loose dirt or debris by gently brushing the clogs with a soft-bristled brush.
  • Wipe the clogs with a damp cloth or sponge soaked in mild soap and water.
  • For stubborn stains, you can gently scrub the affected areas with a soft toothbrush dipped in a mixture of water and mild detergent.
  • Rinse off the soap residue with a clean, damp cloth and allow the clogs to air dry.
Not all Dansko clogs are waterproof, so avoid submerging them completely in water or using harsh chemicals that could damage the materials. With regular cleaning, your clogs should maintain their longevity.

Freshen up the Footbed: Cleaning and Deodorizing

The footbed of your Dansko clogs is where your feet spend most of their time, so keeping it clean and fresh is crucial. Follow these steps:
  • Before cleaning, remove the footbed from the clogs. Dansko offers clogs with removable footbeds for easy maintenance.
  • Hand wash the footbed with mild soap and warm water. Gently scrub away any dirt or stains.
  • Rinse the footbed thoroughly and allow it to air dry. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources that may warp the material.
  • To deodorize the footbed, sprinkle baking soda and let it sit overnight. Vacuum or brush away the baking soda the next day.
  • Once the footbed is completely dry, reinsert it into your clogs, and you're ready!

Protecting and Maintaining the Leather:

If your Dansko clogs feature leather uppers, proper care will help maintain the materials.
  • Use a soft, dry cloth to remove any surface dirt on the leather.
  • Apply a small amount of leather conditioner or cream to a clean cloth and gently rub it onto the leather in circular motions.
  • Allow the conditioner to absorb into the leather for a few minutes, and then buff it with a clean cloth to restore its luster.
  • For extra protection, consider using a leather waterproofing spray to shield your clogs from spills and stains.

Maintain Your Dansko Clogs for Long-lasting Comfort:

Dansko clogs are an investment in comfort and style; with a little TLC, they can serve you well for years to come. Remember to clean the exterior regularly, freshen up the footbed, and protect the leather to keep your clogs pristine. Following these simple maintenance tips will allow you to dance through your shifts quickly!
