bumbag styling

Bumbags, fanny packs, money belt, belt bag, whatever you want to call them, the laughable ’80’s accessory is officially back and I know what you’re thinking; how could something with such an embarrassing name ever make a serious come-back in the modern fashion world? Well, in a world so fickle as fashion, and with a little help from Armani and McCartney on the catwalks, a-listers Kendall Jenner and Miley Cyrus rocking serious street style, and a hoard of pioneering festival go-oers at Glastonbury; 2017 is the year of the bumbag.

So you’ve invested in a pair of Birkenstock sandals. Good choice, as they look good, offer great arch support, and will probably be the most comfortable pair of sandals you’ll ever slip your feet into.

You’re going to be wearing them a lot, which means they’re going to start showing signs of wear and tear at some point. Luckily, we’ve prepared a handy guide on how to clean Birkenstock sandals so you can keep them looking fresh all summer long.

Birkenstocks can be cleaned using lukewarm water, bicarbonate of soda, and a little bit of elbow grease. Follow our step-by-step guide to cleaning your favourite, well worn Birkenstock sandals.

How to clean Birkenstock sandals

Things you will need:

  • Water
  • Mixing bowl
  • Bicarbonate of soda
  • Suede cleaning brush
  • Toothbrush
  • Cloth
  • Sponge

Step 1: Remove excess dirt

  • Use the suede cleaning brush to gently brush both soles to remove surface dirt.

Step 2: Prepare the mixture

  • Mix bicarbonate of soda and water to roughly 2 parts bicarbonate of soda to 1 part water (the paste should be quite thick).

Step 3: Apply the paste

  • Apply to the footbeds using the toothbrush in circular motions.
  • Avoid the exposed cork sides.
  • Cover thoroughly.

Step 4: Clean using the sponge

  • Remove all the mixture.
  • Don’t over saturate with water.

Step 5: Dab dry with the cloth

  • Leave to dry in a cool place (drying in direct sunlight can crack the cork soles).
  • Finally, use the suede brush again to soften the soles.

If you haven’t already guessed, we’re major fans of Birkenstock here at schuh and if you haven’t got around to treating your feet to a pair from this year’s cracking selection, you might want to pop on over and get shopping.
