Free Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel

Free Nikwax Sandal Wash

This freebie was originally posted on June 19, 2012.

I always forget about this free Nikwax footwear cleaning gel. It’s probably because you have to take a five to eleven question quiz after signing up and I hate quizes. They were easily the worst part of school. The threat of a pop quiz always put a timer on my harrowing escapes from inside the gym lockers. I think it’s why I get panic attacks just from smelling Gold Bond.

Seriously though, you have to take a freaking quiz and answer all the questions correctly. Click the “clue” button next to each question and it will take you to the page where the answer is found. It took me about 4 or 5 minutes total.

    Ddue… That is annoying that quiz. From what I gather, you don’t get the item unless you get the quiz right. -__-

    For once, a quiz was beneficial…these are interesting products!  Will have to look next time I shop at REI.

    I give up! I tried a few times and it’s just not worth it. Geez.

    i cant even get the page to register me……….. keeps saying i need to tell them an email address of whoever recommended me

  • redmckeown

    couldn’t get past the log in page (even after putting a friend’s email). guess i’ll just have smelly flip flops!

  • Corrina

    Missed one question so I don’t get a freebie. Guess I’ll have to clean my sandals the old-fashioned way: with a washcloth and water.

  • WhyBother

    Agree with everyone else too hard and too much trouble. Worst freebie ever.

  • BriPatrick

    You can take the quiz multiple times until you get the right answers. Then you can take it again every 3 months and get the sample again.

  • DomesticDisaster

    Not five questions, eleven!

    I did go through all 11 questions and got them right after hitting the clue button and reading the product name or reviewing the “benefits of” bullet. The registration and test time took about 10 minutes total. The prize should arrive in 28 days.

    Hope other people actually recieve their products. I have signed up for at least six of their free samples and never recieved a single one.
