What do Jennifer Lopez , Depeche Mode , Nancy Sinatra , Beyoncé and Elvis Presley have in common? They all sang about shoes during their careers. And this is quite successful, because everyone still has these songs in their ears. But no wonder: The second skin of the feet made of leather or fabric is and will always be an issue that interests everyone. Since come these 21 tricks around the topic “feet and shoes” but just right.
1 Too tight leather shoes fit, if you put on a pair of thick socks before and then blow-dry the shoes in it.
This makes the material more flexible and adapts to your foot shape.
2 For particularly pointed stiletto heels, it is worth sticking the third and fourth toes with adhesive plaster. This gives you a secure footing, and the plaster relieves the pressure on the balls of your feet.
3 Unusual but helpful: a panty liner in the shoe absorbs any liquid. The perfect trick against smelly sweaty feet.
4 Are your shoe soles slippery? Do you run like on raw eggs? Then just work the sole a bit with sandpaper, and you have a safe appearance again.
5 Especially in new running shoes you often get painful scouring wounds. The perfect antidote? Slight lube or Vaseline. Applied before the sport in the heel area, it works wonders.
6 If you’ve got yourself a bubble then: A foot bath in black tea relieves the pain and even has a disinfecting effect.
7 Care can be so easy: patent leather shoes shine like new when you spray them with a little glass cleaner, let it dry for a short time and then wipe it with a cloth over it. It really is not faster.
8 White fabric shoes will be clean again when you clean them with nail polish remover. This will give you even the most stubborn stains away.
9th With a little hairspray you prevent that your foot in slightly too large shoes back and forth or you even lose the shoe completely. Also perfect for flip flops.
10 This trick is a true classic, but not everyone knows it yet: some newspaper makes wet shoes and boots dry faster.
11 If you put a freezer bag full of water in your too-tight shoes and leave everything in the freezer for one night, the expansion of the water will make the shoes fit the next day like a glove.
