What causes rubber clogs and sandals to get so smelly in the first place? Unfortunately, these comfy kicks are the perfect environment for grime and bacteria to accumulate. These substances are readily odiferous, particularly certain bacteria that live on our skin. So, with every step you take, you’re gradually adding to the stink in your shoes.
Nature Lake Clog Wash is the perfect solution for stopping the smell. Simply:
- Drop the tablets into a bucket of water.
- Let the tablets dissolve.
- Submerge your rubber footwear overnight.
- Rinse them off and wear them, fresh and clean!
Not convinced? We understand. It does sound a little too good to be true. But what would you say if we told you we’ve got the evidence to back us up?
In this blog, we’ll break down four of the top ingredients in our Clog Wash formula, and explain why they do such an amazing job fixing those stinky Crocs and rubber sandals!
The alkali: Sodium salts
Clog Wash uses a combination of sodium carbonate (washing soda), sodium percarbonate and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). These substances play multiple roles in the process of getting your footwear smelling fresh.
For starters, they all have high alkalinity, which means they’re basic as opposed to acidic. Their alkaline properties make them good at dissolving greasy and oily substances, including many of the substances our feet naturally produce.
What’s more, they also kill bacteria and fungal spores. When they’re dissolved in water, these sodium salts quickly raise the pH of the solution. Most microorganisms require a near-neutral pH to thrive. Once the pH is raised, odor-causing bacteria are eliminated.
The acid: Citric acid
Citric acid is an ingredient first derived from citrus fruits. It’s what makes lemons and limes taste sour. But it’s also a powerful dissolving agent.
Citric acid is adept at breaking down many difficult-to-remove substances, particularly mineral deposits. It’s got a reputation for making quick work of tough residues, like soap scum. It’s also excellent for dissolving the dirt and grime that gets ground into your footwear.
No scrubbing required
One important takeaway about these key ingredients is that they make scrubbing unnecessary, no matter how stinky your Crocs and rubber sandals have gotten. That’s why, even though it may sound impossibly easy, all you need to do is soak and rinse!
Natural and safe
As much as we wanted our Clog Wash formulation to be ultra-powerful, we also wanted it to be safe and eco-friendly.
Both the sodium salts and the citric acid are naturally occurring ingredients. What’s more, they’re not considered harmful to the environment at the concentrations produced when Clog Wash tablets have been dissolved in water.
No more stinky Crocs, rubber clogs or sandals!
