I often use my time on Sunday to do stuff that I won’t normally get to do on a weekdays, for instance for doing the laundry, cooking at home, sleeping (oh yes, lots of it!) and of course cleaning my shoe collection. I guess I’m a hoarder. I hoard on everything and especially shoes! They often come head to head with my makeup and skincare collection.
Several simple things that I would like to do just to keep my shoes on tip top conditions:
- Wipe them clean with damp clothes to cleanse the freshly used pair so that the dirt wont stick on the shoe material. Afterward, I will wipe them dry to make sure that it will not leave water stain on the leather or canvas.
- Taking some of my collection out of their boxes and give them a chance to breath fresh air and of course making sure that no harm come to them. I once discovered two pairs of shoes have been infested with nasty fungus because of the AC water leak that dripped down to my shoe closet. Luckily, they’re fairly new so I can just wiped them clean with damp cloth. From then on, I make sure that I regularly check my shoe collection in rotation.
- Taking out the rarely used pair and making sure that they’re going to have a fair chance of seeing the daylight for the upcoming week. Like how I find this beautiful pair buried down at the bottom of the shoe boxes pile. Last time I wore it was probably two years ago when I went to Singapore for a Fashion Week. So this beauty is coming with me next week for an important meeting. Hopefully you’re my lucky charm!
