This product really works. I had leather sandals that were at least 5 years old. The leather footbed had become quite dirty. After a quick application and minimal scrubbing with the applicator tip, the footbeds look like new.

I used this on a pair of Teva flip flops and Chaco sandals. It did a great job cleaning both. I was impressed that it got into all of the little grooves on the surface of the of the Chaco footbed. I had never really cleaned these sandals after years of use and one wash with this cleaner really worked.

I really wondered why I needed this sandal wash -- but also realized that nothing else was working for my favorite sandals. I'd tried homemade concoctions and commercial products, but still felt embarrassed by my oldies-but-smellies. Based on reviews and favorable experience with other Nikwax products, I decided to try this stuff. Yes, it really works. I've even used it on my leather insoles (NOT recommended by Nikwax), and it works beautifully. For leather, I don't rinse with running water; I use a damp washcloth over and over to wipe away the product. Then I cover the insole with rice, let the rice absorb moisture overnight, and I'm able to wear the sandals in the morning. I hesitate to say that this is safe for all leather sandals because I'm using it "off label," but I've had great luck.
