A few months ago I invested a couple hundred dollars on a new pair of Danskos to wear to work. I love them so much, that they are on my feet constantly. I finally got grossed out by the thick layer of wayward bloody mary mix, hollandaise sauce and champagne (brunch bar tender) coating the damn things, so this morning I took the laces out and gave them a good cleaning.
Here’s a before picture of the shoes:
And the laces:
I soaked the laces in vinegar and baking soda for the time it took to clean and polish the shoes with leather polish. Maybe five minutes? Then I wrapped them in paper towels for a little while.
So shiny. It feels like I got a new pair of shoes. But I didn’t have to spend any money or put on pants. Wooo!
OMG the Graboid!
