The sudden rains always bring many inconveniences to everyone, and the rain is also an “obsession” for our shoes. Whenever the shoes get wet, we will feel very uncomfortable. Moreover, it will take long for the shoes to dry, and they will also have a terrible smell. Let’s find out several tips for making the shoes waterproof in the following article.
Tips for keeping your shoes from being wet during rainy days
Using beeswax or candles
You can use candle wax or beeswax to rub the surface of the shoes and then use the hair dryer to heat the waxed shoe surface. The heat of the hairdryer helps wax melt evenly into the surface to protect the shoes from dirty rainwater.
Using waterproof Vaseline
Before you go to the street, apply the Vaseline evenly over the shoes. You can use a brush to spread the cream evenly. Vaseline has the same effect as wax, preventing water from attaching to the shoes. If dirty water splashes on your shoes, you just need to rinse them with clean water. Your shoes won’t get dirty.
Using Nano waterproof spray
Two outstanding features of the Nano aerosol are waterproofness and dust-resistance. Usually, after each spray, your shoes will be protected for 7 to 15 days.
Instructions for using waterproof Nano aerosol:
Step 1: Clean the shoes. Note that if the shoes are wet, let them dry completely.
Step 2: Shake the aerosol well before spraying. Keep the spray a distance of 6-8 inches from the shoes to give maximum coverage.
Step 3: Let the shoes dry naturally for at least 1 hour to 2 hours but not under direct sunlight. You can use a dryer to reduce drying time. When it is completely dry, leave it there for about 1 hour, then you can put on your shoes. This is time-consuming because it takes time for the shoes to dry. Therefore, you can do it in the evening, and you can wear your shoes the next morning.
Using rain shoe covers
The use of rain shoe covers will help you best protect your shoes, increase the life of the shoes you wear and end the feeling of having to wear wet and dusty shoes when it rains. In addition, this helps us protect the environment. Instead of using rustle plastic bags that are not waterproof during heavy rainfall and also negatively affect the environment, you should choose a heavy shoe cover that is water resistant, supple, durable, comfortable and fashionable.
How to handle wet shoes in case of rain
If one day you are walking on the street and suddenly it rains and your shoes get wet, follow the steps below to help the shoes dry quickly and leave no odor.
How to do:
If your shoes are so wet, rinse them with clean water once, then use a cloth to dampen the water on the shoes. Grab a newspaper circular and put it inside the shoes to absorb moisture. Finally, dry the shoes in a cool place or put them in front of a fan to help them dry faster.
