After using, remember to take out your orthotics. Let it dry and air out at the end of the day. Placing in a convenient and easily noticeable spot makes it easier to remember. Orthotics need to be cleaned and must be done so with gentle scrubbing. A mild soap and water solution would do. Never use a washing machine or a dishwasher for the task. After washing, rinse them out. Let them dry out in the air. If your orthotics have leather top covers, these cannot be washed.
Sometimes, it may be tempting to use orthotics in any pair of footwear that you own. Orthotics work best in the designated footwear. It also ensures that it keeps the proper form and shape.
