The bane of every shoe owner is not the shoes getting old and worn out, no! It’s the shoes becoming dirty. Most times we may try the conventional water and dry rag but this method doesn’t work for most shoes.
Here are 5 shoe cleaning hacks to help solve your problems.
- Toothpaste And Water
This hack is efficient for removing stains and grime from leather shoes and white soled sneakers easily. Coloured toothpaste may stain the soles rather than remove the stains. It is advisable to use plain white toothpaste. To carry out this hack, you are to
- Use a new toothbrush and then squeeze whatever brand of plain white toothpaste you have on the toothbrush.
- Apply water to the toothbrush, hence making it wet and then start scrubbing the dirty part of the shoe.
- When you are certain it is sufficiently scrubbed, wipe off the shoe with a wet cloth.
- Petroleum Jelly and q-tip
Vaseline is mild and gentle on leather. To remove scuff marks on patent leather shoes, apply Vaseline on the shoes using q-tip (cotton bud). Vaseline helps to soften scuff marks as well as remove them from your shoes without any damage.
3. White vinegar and Water
Water stains on boots can be an eyesore. So, to get rid of them, a solution of white vinegar and water would do the trick to ensure their instant removal.
4.Fingernail file and White Rubber Eraser
These can be used to remove stains and dirt from suede shoes. They help buff away the fibers that is holding the stains and dirty shoes on the suede shoes.
5. Hair Conditioner and Boots.
Hair conditioners do more than make the hair clean and shine. Leather boots can also shine and sparkle when shoe conditioners are used on them.
After cleaning your boots, they can be polished with small amounts of hair conditioners. The resulting effects would have the boots looking as new as possible. This is a killer right?
