In fact, well-kept shoes depict how important you believe it is to give a positive image of yourself by paying painstaking attention to every minute detail of your appearance, starting right from your feet.
Fortunately, this shoe care secret will help you make a better one.

– Brush off the dirt and infection
Scrape the dry mud off the shoes and brush off all the dirt and debris with a shoe brush. You can also use an old toothbrush and some soap solution to scrub away the fungus. Ensure that you brush even the smallest crevices to remove all traces.

Rub or clean off as much dirt as possible with a cloth. Place a sheet of tissue paper or a paper napkin within the shoe and leave it for a few minutes. Repeat the process to dry out the shoe completely. Post this, sprinkle some talcum powder to absorb any lingering moisture.
– A simple trick
Stuff shoes with newspaper to retain their shape and prevent them from bending or creasing. In addition, keep the shoes in a cloth shoe cover before putting them in the box. Also, use silica bags to keep the shoes safe from moisture.
