How can I clean my Havaianas?
Because Havaianas are made from natural rubber it is important to clean them with a mild detergent. Please do not use bleach.
Dip your Havaianas in warm water with mild detergent for a few minutes. Use a soft sponge (non abrasive) to clean them and then rinse them. Do not put them into a washing machine, this can damage the product.
How long does a pair of Havaianas last?
There is no exact answer to this because the durability of a pair of Havaianas depends on several factors, such as frequency of use, type of use, type of floor/ground, product care, among others.

How can I fix a twisted strap?
Twisted straps are a common occurrence on Havaianas due to the material they’re made of and packaging/shipping can also cause the straps to sometimes twist out of place. Rubber is a pliable material and can be easily bent. There is an easy way to solve this problem: twist the toe post at the front of the flip flop so that it lines up straight, and then pull the straps into the correct position. Then place a fairly weighty item (a thick book or similar) on top of the straps to hold them in this position for 24-48 hours, this usually puts them right.
