Lately, the weather has been rather hot... but with plenty of rain. Besides making our daily commute a bit more challenging, it also means that we might end up walking in the rain, or at least wading through puddles of water. Of course, this isn’t good news for our shoes. Luckily, cleaning your shoes after a rainy day isn’t always that hard. Quite often, these simple tricks is all you need...


1. To clean spots on leather shoes, take a soft cloth, dip it in water, then in baking soda, and gently rub the areas affected. For rubber shoes, wooden heels, and composite heels, use the same method, but substitute scouring powder for baking soda. Afterwards, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe the shoe.

2. If you have suede shoes, however, you don’t want to use method number one. Instead, you can rub off dirt with an eraser or remove any noticeable stains with an emery board. Afterwards, use a clean toothbrush to gently scrub the area affected. If the suede gets really matted, you can use steam (perhaps you could hold the shoe near the spout of a kettle) and then brush it again.

3. Prevention is better than a cure, right? So, you might want to have a supply of water-resistant spray at hand. These are sold in many shoe shops or shoe repair counters, and can easily make life easier when the rainy season starts in earnest.
