When washing sheepskin there are a few main factors to be aware of. Incorrect washing can cause the sheepskin to de-tan and if this happens they will have to be thrown out. To avoid this please follow these strict instructions.
Only use only a small amount of an approved Neutral or Mild Wool Wash if unavailable then don't use anything.
Do not use any Bleach, Detergents or Enzyme Washing Products!
Only use cold water or warm water below 40⁰C. If you are not sure of the temperature of your washing machine, then only use cold water. Also some washing machines insert the hot water before the cold, this will ruin the sheepskin. If your washing machine does this or you are unsure then only use cold water.
Avoid Direct Heat when drying, dry outside in the shade or inside away from heaters, radiators or fires. Do not let the sheepskin dry out to fast, it is best to leave a small amount of moisture left in the skin.
After the sheepskin is dry, brush with a pet brush to restore pile and finish with a solid shake.
All footwear is best spot cleaned, using a small amount of liquid and a cloth. Follow the rules above and treat like you would cleaning carpet.
