How To Properly Clean The Inside Of Your Shoes
Hey, smelly shoes can happen to anybody. When you’re gallivanting around in your shoes at all hours of the day and night, things are bound to get a little gross. We already told you how to take care of your favorite heels, but what about the insides of your favorite kicks or flats?
Here are seven ways you can clean the inside of your best pair of shoes – and hopefully get rid of that weird smell.
Prevent The Gunk
Put Dryer Sheets In Them
Make Cute – And Functional – Sachets
Use Soap (Duh)
Sometimes, all you need is some good dish soap and a sponge. Just make sure to apply the soap to your sponge, instead of directly to your shoes (there’s a chance you could stain them further!)
Use White Vinegar And Baking Soda
Yeah, we know, this one sounds a little bit crazy. If your running shoes are smelling a little gross, feel free to slip them in a bag and put them in the freezer. The odor-causing bacteria won’t be able to make it in the cold temperature.
Whatever You Do, Let Them Air Dry
Please, please don’t use a hair dryer or your heat register to speed up the process. Chances are, they’ll loose their shape and you’ll end up ruining the shoes you’re trying to save. After you wipe or wash out the inside of your shoes, let those babies air-dry.
