5 Easy Shoe Care Tips For Happy Feet

Women love shoes - and every kind of them. They wish that their stylish pair of heels or the classic ballerinas would last forever, but sadly, that is not the case. Long-term use leads to wear and tear, and finally, they need to be sent to shoe heaven. Some lose their former sheen and glory, some remain stinky and some others become excessively dirty and muddy that they require a complete makeover. So whether they are new or old, to get your women’s shoes back to being beautiful and functional, here are a few tips that you need to try.

Tips For Odourless Running Shoes

Stinky shoes are a result of bacteria thriving and releasing their odours due to your sweat. Here's how to make your women’s shoes smell pleasant:

  1. Place the shoes in a freezer by packing them in a plastic bag. This kills the bacteria.

  2. Or spray rubbing alcohol or white vinegar to kill them

  3. Fill an empty tea filter with baking soda and place it inside the shoes to remove the stench

  4. You can also place them every day under the sun to maintain freshness after using them

  5. Put a few drops of tea tree essential oil onto a cotton ball & place it inside your shoe for fragrance

  6. Or you can place cedarwood instead to deodorize

  7. And finally, you get your running shoes smelling like perfume

Here are some quick-fix solutions to ensure your women’s shoes are non-slippery as much as possible:


  1. Scrape the soles of your women’s formal shoes onto the gravel or rough concrete to produce scuffs which would increase the traction of your shoes

  2. Rub sandpaper on the soles to make them rough

  3. You can apply hairspray onto the sole to make them sticky and non-slippery

  4. Or apply puff paint instead for a long term solution

  5. You can also attach a non-slip sole onto the shoe sole to prevent skidding or slipping

  6. And finally, you get a shoe that prevents you from embarrassing slips
