Glerup Slippers Care Guide

If you own a pair of Glerup wool slippers, you know that the slipper is flexible and easy to jump into. It keeps the foot warm and dry, due to the wool’s great capacity of absorbing moisture. If you've lived in your slippers for a season or more, you know that a well loved slipper can get a bit worn and possibly a bit smelly over time. 

Below are some tips of how to keep your slippers in their prime with a little love and care so you can wear them for years to come.

General Upkeep 

Before and after a season of wearing your glerups (or every 6 months or so) vacuum or blow your glerups clean of dust. The leather soles can be brushed and cleaned with a leather brush.
Glerups have a tendency to shed within the first 3-4 weeks of wear, which is totally normal and is due to the natural treatment of glerups wool. Simply pluck the shedding fibers off and discard (or compost) as desired. :-)
Glerups are machine-washable on a cold, delicate cycle, washed separately. After washing, put your Glerups on while they're still wet to help shape them snug to your foot. Allow your Glerups to fully air-dry outside if possible. 


Though odor is unlikely because of wool's natural ability to self-clean, if you start to notice a smell after wearing your Glerups, allow them to rest, outside if possible for a couple of hours.


If you happen to get a stain on your Glerups, it's recommended you gently clean the stain with a lightly wet, microfiber cloth as soon as possible. If it's a tough stain that won't lift with just water, purchasing wool soap may be a good investment to use for spot treating your Glerups. You may have to repeat the process a few times, but make sure that you always leave the slippers to dry before starting over again.

Happy lounging,
