5 step guide to washing Allbirds
Remove shoelaces and insoles
Remove the shoelaces and insoles from your Allbirds sneakers before washing. This will allow for a more thorough cleaning and will prevent any damage to the laces or insoles during the washing process.
Spot clean any stubborn stains
If there are any stubborn stains on your Allbirds sneakers, treat them with a mild stain remover before washing. This will help to remove the stain more effectively during the washing process.
Machine wash in cold water and gentle detergent
Place inside a pillowcase or mesh bag to protect your shoes. Use a gentle wash cycle. For best results, wash the insoles by hand.
Stuff the shoes with clean, dry towels or paper towels to help them retain their shape, and let them air dry in a well-ventilated area. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, as they can cause the shoes to warp or shrink.
Re-insert insoles and shoelaces
Once your Allbirds sneakers are completely dry, re-insert the insoles and shoelaces. If the insoles are removable and washable, be sure to wash and dry them separately before re-inserting them into the shoes. Your Allbirds sneakers should now be clean and ready to wear!
