  • Once most of the chocolate has been removed. Clean the entire shoe with a clean brush and a water/ solution mixture. (We recommend this all-natural cleaner.)

  • Let air dry.

*Depending on the chocolate, there may be some oily residue left behind, that you can see once the shoe is dry. The best way to clean oil is to use oil, however ammonia and typical cleaners are too harsh and will discolor your shoes.

  • Using a dye and alcohol-free laundry detergent made with all-natural oils, place the shoes into a laundry bag. Insert the shoes and detergent in the washing basin and set on a normal cycle with cold water.
