5 Easy Ways To Take Care Of Your Shoes So They Don’t Fall Apart
Raise your hand if you have ever thrown away a pair of shoes because they seemed “worn out” or you thought you couldn’t repair them. If you’re raising your hand, you’re not alone. Three hundred million pairs of shoes go to landfills every year. To help reduce waste, review these five simple tips to repair your favorite shoes.
Hydrogen Peroxide And Baking Soda
Let’s be honest: Your shoes get dirty the more times you wear them. Instead of throwing these shoes out to buy shiny new ones, apply a homemade mixture of water, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide to your shoes, leave them alone for a few hours, and you’ll find your shoes look brand new.
Similar to using hydrogen peroxide and baking powder to clean your white shoes, if you notice stains on your leather shoes, there’s a simple way to clean this. Rub isopropyl alcohol on your shoes to safely remove any stains. To remove stubborn stains, moisten a cotton ball with denatured alcohol.
Your shoes accumulate odors the more times you wear them. Eventually, you may feel inclined to throw the shoes away. You don’t have to do this. Instead, you can insert unused tea bags into the soles of your shoes to remove bad odors. Not only are you getting a second purpose for your tea bags, but you’re helping your shoes!
Sometimes, your leather boots lose their stylish shapes. Luckily, wine bottles have the perfect weight and height to help reshape your boots. Insert bottles into your boots to maintain your shoes. In addition, this will look like a trendy decoration in your house, which will be a great conversation starter.
There are so many ways to polish your shoes, but one simple way is to apply a small amount of hair conditioner to help polish and moisturize your leather shoes. Use a clean rag to rub small amounts of the conditioner onto the dry leather. The conditioner will also provide a protective coat on your shoes.
