Do you like clean shoes?
I’m talking about really clean shoes – and I know how to make old shoes really, really clean.
It happened like this: one day last week, just about everything seemed to be going wrong. Nothing major, but just every little aggravating thing.
For example, I was planning to bake a particular dessert and finally got started with it, only to learn half-way through the mixing process that I didn’t have one of the necessary ingredients. Of course, the others were already in the mixing bowl.
That night, I realized that I had not washed my clothes, including what I needed for the next day. I quickly went upstairs and grabbed the pile of dirty clothes, then tossed them in the washing machine.
Tired and sleepy, I waited until the clothes were washed, then tossed them in the dryer.
Since I absolutely don’t believe in using an iron, I always take clothes out of the dryer immediately to avoid wrinkling, even on those nights when I am struggling to stay awake and alert.
Imagine my surprise when I unloaded the dryer piece by piece and found one of my brown fabric high-heeled pumps.
And the insides were crinkly and a bit ruffled.
Yep, I’ve got the answer for getting clean shoes, but I have no idea how to make them wearable again.
