TOMS

To Wash or Not To Wash??  That is the question!

Okay..So I have these TOMS..I LOVE my TOMS!

But….

The girl that sold me my first pair of Toms told me to buy them a 1/2 size smaller.  (They are supposed to stretch… Umm No!)

So….I have worn and worn them without socks until…the stench was quite

DISGUSTING!

So I sprayed them several times with Bath & Body Spray…it helped but quickly the stench came back…

SO with much debate…I decided I would wash them and see how they fared in the laundry.

The results are in….

Obviously, these are the canvas ones and I would not suggest washing the ones that are made of those cute little sparkles!  But, I am happy that I can continue to wear my fresh smelling TOMS!

Oh and I just threw them in the washer with some TIDE and then let them air dry!

  3. Thank you for this post! My TOMS are STANKY too. I have been wanting to wash them but I was afraid that I would ruin them! Thanks for being the guinea pig on this one! I'm tossing my TOMS in the machine! :)

  10. Hi! Visiting from the blog hop.

    I'm a TOMS fanatic. I have somewhere around 11 pairs! I would definitely tell people to get whatever size they normally get in a shoe... I would not buy a half size smaller!

    I'm glad to hear that washing in the washing machine works well... I normally wash them with some detergent in the sink and then air dry!

  11. Thanks for sharing. I live in my Toms and as all of us know sometimes life and feet can stink. Glad that I can give them a quick wash and make them smell better.
