Fun Shoe Tips!!

Here's a few ideas that you may want to keep in mind.  Little things I've learned over the years to help keep my shoes in tip top shape!  - - -

~  I live in Idaho, and I wear my suede boots all winter long, thru the ice, snow, and the salt used for melting the ice and snow... If you're like me, then you've probably noticed the salt stains left on your boots after sloshing thru the wet winter weather... TaKe NoTE:

* White vinegar cleans salt-stained leather and suede shoes. Make a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Dab it onto a cotton rag (or a nylon-bristle brush if you're cleaning suede), rub gently over the entire shoe, and let dry.

~ This next tip comes in VERY handy when you have a 6 year old boy in the springtime. My son LOVES puddles... (I think he's magnetically drawn to them) And in the springtime when everything is melting, and there are hundreds of puddles calling his name, I welcome home a very soggy footed first grader nearly every day... TaKe NoTe:

*Help wet shoes preserve their shape―and speed up drying―by placing crumpled newspaper in them overnight.

I think these are GREAT TIPS!  Hope you can use them and enjoy them as well!
