The rains are here and this time sooner than expected. We all enjoy getting drenched in the rain and then stuffing hot hot pakodas with a sip of kadak chai to keep the monsoon mood going. The wet mud, on the other hand, can make things a lil difficult. Especially, with all the dirt on our shoes that get invited home.
Nobody likes their shoes to be caked with mud. Especially, with shoes that are not water-proof. Cleaning them can a bit difficult. So, here are some tips that will help you protect your shoes and make you curse the rains a little lesser.
Here are four easy hacks to take care of your shoes in the Monsoon:
If your expensive shoes get wet in the rain then it is important you dry them in an airy spot or under the fan so they dry naturally. Don’t leave your wet shoes near an air-conditioner because they will remain damp. Make sure they dry from the inside thoroughly otherwise you may get skin infections wearing damp shoes.
If you want your shoes to last long then cleaning them is critical because wet and mud will not only spoil the quality of your shoes but also the texture. Use a toothbrush or a dry cloth and remove the mud stuck on your shoes. Sprinkle a little powder inside your shoes because it will soak up the moistness in them.
It is necessary to pamper your shoes to keep the quality intact if you have invested so much in them, you don’t want them to dematerialize because of the rains. Polish them to keep the quality and texture just as new. The clean & care mousse from our clean collection is perfect to retain the shoes’ quality & shine.
Store them right:
Packing them immediately or letting them lay around for a couple of days is a big NO! If you want to increase the durability of your expensive shoes then storing them in a dry place is a must. Keep them open on a shoe rack and let the moisture in the shoes dry itself slowly but completely.
Points to remember:
1. Never use a dryer to dry the shoes. This can loosen the glue from the soles.
2. Always remove the shoe lace and insoles to easy the process.
3. Do not dry shoes under harsh sunlight. This can harm the shoe.
