Sandal Cleaning Tips

All these activities can take a toll on your comfy sandals. Open-toed shoes like sandals are especially vulnerable to dust and dirt in the summertime. Proper shoe care and cleaning, especially sandals which are usually worn barefoot, is also very good for proper foot hygiene and wellness.
