So many of you being worried of whether it's safe to wash Eco Faux Fur items or not I made this video to show how easy it actually is to take care of your woollen slippers and other small Eco Faux Furs items at home. 

Oftentimes the woollen items just need to be freshened up and they clean themselves when placed outdoors in the fresh air. However sometimes proper wash is needed and you really don't need to be afraid of it at all. Just carefully follow the recipe above and guaranteed your favourite woollens will never let you down.

Here's what you need:

- 7 - 10 litre basin
- 3 x 5 litres of water
- water thermometer
- 15 millilitres of washing detergent suitable for wool and silk
- absorbent tea towel
- clothes line or clothes horse - you can either hang the slippers to dry on the clothes line or level-dry them on a clothes horse - both outdoors and indoors do the job as long as the environment is dry.
- clothes pegs

The thing to bear in mind when washing wool and especially tufted items is that wool felts if rubbed or twisted or moved in too warm water so avoid those actions and make sure the water temperature is not in any circumstances above 30 degrees Celsius (85 degrees Fahrenheit).
