- TAKE CARE OF YOUR TOASTIES –
At Toasties, we want our products to last.
That’s why we are giving you here some cool granny tips to cherish and take care of your Toasties for life !
1. SHAKE + AIR IT !
In order to keep your sheepskin fluid and clean, you can shake it frequently to remove dust and air it. Especially for big pieces with dense sheepskin (home furniture), you can shake it, air it and vacuum it at least once a week.
2. A FEW RAIN DROPS – NO PANIC !
We know how life can be unpredictable, such as the weather! If a few rain drops fall on your Toasties accessories, just let it dry naturally and it will perfectly recover. If a few rain drops stains persist, you can still gently rub your products between your hand palms and stains should disappear. Just like that !
For the most far-sighted Toasties aficionados : if you want to protect best your Toasties (leather side), you can use a water resistant spray. It will not make your products 100% waterproof, but it will reduce risks to have stains from rain. Make sure you use a colorless and qualitative waterproof spray not to damage your Toasties’ unique colors.
Toasties metal finishes (metallic paper applied to the leather side of the sheepskin) might be more fragile than plain sheepskin. Despite their appearance, they are not waterproof or water-repellent and are therefore to handle with care.
Over time, the metallic effect may patine and/or create some crackings that might happen due to environmental hazards (such as rain drops, heat, humidity and other movements).
3. BRUSH GENTLY !
Only for the Suede side of your Toasties.
At Toasties, we have developed « The Magic Suede Brush » to preserve your leather longer and keep it elegant for everyday.
How to use it?
We recommend using the brush carefully and brushing very gently the Suede side of your Toasties (brush in the same direction). Be kind and the rest will follow!

Also, you can use a small comb to brush gently your sheepskin – on the wool/hairy side.
Just like ours, sheepskin have different types of hair (curly, locks, frizzy or straight,…) if it gets messy / knotty - we recommend you to brush it very gently, not to break the natural curls and improve the look of your Toasties hairy sheepskins !
4. SAVON DE MARSEILLE & CO !
Only for the wool side of your Toasties.
In case of emergency stains with: wine/food/ketchup/grease/etc… just slightly wet with lukewarm water the wool side of your Toasties with a clean sponge and use of few drops of savon de marseille. Then, gently rub the area in circles, rinse with clear water and carefully dry it with a clean towel.
Tadaaa, the stain shall not resist!
