cleaning shoes tips

Our shoes, just by virtue of where we wear them, can become some of the dirtiest accessories we wear.

You can either step into or get splashed with all kinds of nasty stuff, plus get scuffs and scrapes all over them.

In addition, along with them getting dirty from the environment around you, they can get stinky or smelly from your own feet!

Some shoes are quite expensive, while others are cheap, so the care and attention we pay to them partially depends on how much they cost us, and what materials they're made of.

This, of course, also effects the methods we can use to get them ready for more wear and presentable again.

If you've got tips or tricks for getting your footwear cleaned up, I'd love to hear them. Tell me below!
