How do you deep clean roller skates?
It’s easy to clean your skate wheels using just mild soap (like Dawn dish soap) and water. Just make sure to check your wheels first—if your wheels have metal cores, you need to keep them dry so they don’t rust.
Can I wash my skate pads?
Also, occasionally wash your pads. Throw them in the washing machine on the delicate cycle with about three-quarters of a cup of washing detergent. When the washer fills up with water, pause the cycle so the pads can soak in the soap for about 30 minutes.
Can I wash my roller blades?
