Frugal Fashion Quick Tip: Perking Up Sad Looking Shoes

So you all dressed up, but you shoes are looking rough. No money or time to get shoe polish, let alone new shoes. Somehow, when my shoes look worn out, I feel worn out all over.

Give this little tip a try.

This works especially well on leather shoes, just not suede.

Brush away any dust or dirt.

Grab a little hand lotion and massage it into the shoe. Be careful to avoid getting too much in little nooks and crannies. Also, you might want to remove any shoelaces.

Let the lotion sit for about five minutes then buff with a clean soft rag.

  1. Very true. Thank for sharing the advice!

  2. Buy nice shoes for special, but all others should be machine washable! Merrell’s, Clark’s, Privo etc. all wash great and go from the garden to work easily!
