So you’ve got a cute pair of TOMS, feeling good about your foot fashion for a cause, but after some wear your TOMS shoes could use a freshening up. The manufacturer recommends hand washing, but we have found a few directions for washing them in the washing machine that do work! So here you go!


  1. Remove surface dirt from your TOMS with a soft bristled brush.
  2. Set your washing machine to the most gentle cycle you have, delicate or hand wash, and be sure to set the water to cold.
  3. When the machine fills halfway with water add a small amount of gentle detergent.
  4. When the machine fills 3/4 of the way with water add the TOMS shoes.
  5. To dry your TOMS it is best to place them in the sun with a dryer sheet stuffed in them to kill any remaining odor.


Of course you could just hand wash your TOMS with cold water and gentle detergent like TOMS Shoes recommends. What pair of TOMS do you rock?
