Shoes are almost every girl’s best friend, but it’s tough when they let you down. Here are some tips and tricks you should know ...
Scuffed patent leather?
The gleam of patent leather is seductive, but it starts looking bad quickly when you get a scuff. Luckily a little Vaseline applied with an ear bud will solve the problem.
If it’s suede that’s looking grungy, a special suede brush or nail file will buff out. Just be gentle, though.
Don’t pick at that leather water mark and risk ruining your shoe. A little vinegar on a toothbrush will soon work that mark out and you’ll be looking good again.
Boots won’t zip?
Good old Vaseline is your friend again here. Or rub a little bit of candle wax up and down the zip. Sticky zips will be a thing of the past.
Need to boost that shine?
Of course, we’ve all had that morning when your shoes need a buff but you’re all out of shoe polish. A small amount of hand or body lotion will do the trick! Rub in gently until it is all absorbed. If the shoes are patent leather, a spritz of glass cleaner works like magic.
Never worry about replacing expensive shoes again - you can fix up that damage in a heartbeat.
