Fortunately, these handmade accessories are easy to care for; Here we discuss some simple tips to make them look like new.
Longaberger slippers are handcrafted from maple weave. Like other wood products, there are some common sense tips to remember. First, avoid placing them in direct sunlight. Sunlight will make its rich maple color fade. Also, to prevent the wood from drying out, never place it near the vents. Keep them dry and away from damp areas to avoid warping.
During use, its parts can pick up stains or stains. To clean, the first thing you should try is warm water and a mild soap. Be sure to wring out the sponge or cloth well before attempting to gently remove stains or marks from the maple fabric. After washing them with mild soap and water, allow them to air dry before refilling or putting them back in place.
If soap and water don’t work, don’t despair. For those stubborn stains, use a Mr. Clean brand magic eraser. Dampen the Magic Eraser with mild soap and warm water, then try again. No matter how stubborn the stain is, be sure to take a gentle approach. Rubbing can cause discoloration. Again, give your sneakers time to air dry.
If you have a problem with your Longaberger baskets that is not easily solved with these simple tips, keep in mind that you can also order repair kits and dyes from the company. However, with a little care and common sense, your collection should look its best for years to come.
