Blisters suck! Once you get blisters on your feet, you do everything to get rid of it. But what would you do when you have to attend a dance party that can’t be missed? Would you wear slippers and go to the party? Of course not. 

You might not know, but rubbing deodorant could help you out. Rub the deodorant on your feet. This would provide a smooth surface for the shoes so that they could glide across smoothly. 

3. When Your Shoes Stink

Shoes stinking is the most common complaint. Who would walk around all day with the stinky shoes? Keep your shoes in the sun. This would prevent bacterial growth; plus, it would dry the moisture. 

Alternatively, you could also use lemon peel to remove the awful smell from the shoes. Put lemon peel in your shoes overnight. This would provide fragrance to smelly shoes. If you have tea bags at home, then you could also keep them inside your shoes for 2-4 hours.

4. Make Your Shoe Waterproof

You are leaving for a walk, and it’s pouring. Would you ruin your favorite shoes? No! If this happens, you can convert your sports shoes into a waterproof shoe. Rub a candle on your shoes. This would coat a thin layer of wax on shoes. Now blowdry them from front to back to create waterproof shoes. 

Try this amazing shoe hack when it rains. You could also use waterproofing spray that is available in the market. Spray on the upper part of the shoe and wipe off the excess spray with a towel. Let it dry overnight. 

5. Loosen up the Tip of Your Shoe

Unfortunately, you have ordered a shoe that is smaller than your foot size. Before returning them, try this trick. Fill two airtight bags or zip locks with water and place them inside your shoes. Keep the shoes in the freezer overnight. Take your shoes out and remove the airtight bags. You could now wear shoes comfortably. What happens is water expands when it turns into ice, and the shoe tips become wider than before. 

Would you be okay keeping your shoes in the freezer? I won’t do this. But you could try if you do not want to return them. 

6. Dry Your Wet Shoes
