Fall & Winter Shoe Care Part I

Fall & Winter Shoe Care Part I

Hello it’s Tammy Parrish from The
Clothing Compass. I wanted to talk to you today and give you some tips about how to take care of your shoes and get them ready for fall and winter. I hope you
enjoy the tips! We have a suede shoe — a boot — and what I want to do is get rid of these worn places so obviously first I’m going to brush the boots but a
trick that’s Bianca from LINJA shoes www.linjashoes.com taught me is a way to get these to
really get this out is to use your kettle. So you want to turn the kettle on,
and once it starts boiling you’re going to brush the suede in the steam. So now
the steam’s coming out, and I’m gonna brush that in the steam and it really
does help. So that came out much better in the steam than without the steam. So
that’s a tip to get some really tough places out of your suede. The next tip
is for patent leather shoes. You obviously cannot use regular shoe polish
on this, so your secret ingredient is Vaseline — petroleum jelly — which you can find in all drugstores. So you just take a bit on a clean cloth
(I use this for my shoes). Take a little bit of the petroleum jelly and rub it
over the shoe and also wipe it off. What you’ll see is all of those spots come off. It nicely shines patent leather shoes. If you have a leather shoe that needs a bit of
polishing, if you’re running out the door & you don’t have time for a full shine —
before you put your socks on, use one of your socks as a polishing cloth. It goes
like this — literally — just use your sock and polish your shoe. Now this only
works if your shoes have been polished recently. It’s a nice
way to give a quick touch-up if you would like more tips please visit
