12 Apr The history of slippers
Everyone loves a great pair of slippers, but do we really know where they originated from or why they are such a staple piece in our lives. Well here is your chance to find out!

Taking care of slippers
We all take care of our outdoor shoes, making sure they are clean etc. However, we don’t usually pay that much attention to the care and condition of our slippers. Therefore, we have a guide to help you make the most of your slippers and keep them in the best condition possible.
- Make sure your slippers are machine washable, if they are, then put them in at the correct temperature on a slow, short spin.
- Never wring slippers. They will lose their shape, so instead use a towel to soak up some of the water, then allow to dry naturally.
- Every now and then, put some wipes in the slippers, this will stop the slippers from smelling and ensure they are up to the best quality.
