2 brilliant back to school shoe hacks

Back to school is looming and I have promised my self to be more organised this year and try and plan ahead. School uniform is needed and new school shoes (sigh) Missing items and wrecked shoes cause me all sorts of problems but this year I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve that will help.

How to avoid shoe stains

Shoes get worn quickly with my football mad son and daughter who seem to do little else at break times other than kicks a ball around the playground and ruin their shoes and the knees of their trousers.  But this year I have a secret weapon in Ultra Repel which protects shoes from rain and stains (shame it doesn’t repel footballs too)  Basically it adds water and stain repellent to smooth leather, suede, and fabric. Very useful!

My daughter loves her little suede like winter boots but they do stain when they get wet. This should provide a great solution.

One can provides over 10 applications and its fast drying. I am going to give those a go on my converse!

Available to buy in shoe stores (not online)


How to prevent missing or mixed up shoes

Oh my daughter has come home with other children school shoes and PE shoes on several occasions. To be fair to her most of her and her friend school shoes do look similar. Cherry Splats are a great solution for this. These self adhesive shoe stickers are just perfect to stick inside shoes you just do not want to lose!


Just £3 and enough  for 6 pairs of shoes.



Good luck with your back to school planning. Do you have any clever ideas to share with me?

    I believe everything posted made a lot of sense. But, consider this, suppose you were to create a killer headline? I ain’t saying your content is not solid., however what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news headlines to get people interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.|
