How to dry your shoes

It is a golden rule that you need to keep your feet warm. This advice was given by our grandmothers. Freezing leads to fever and colds, so you should make sure that your shoes are always warm and dry.

During winter weather, even the best quality shoes can get wet. OBOZ.UA publishes effective ways to help you dry your shoes quickly.

How to dry shoes

The easiest way is to put your shoes on or under a radiator. People also often advised to use the hot mode of a hair dryer. In fact, such actions can lead to deformation of the shoe: both natural leather models and shoes made of currently popular eco-leather. It is better to use less risky life hacks.

First life hack

Ordinary table salt is a cheap and effective way to remove excess moisture without damaging your shoes. Experts advise heating salt in a frying pan, pouring it into a sock, and putting it in your shoes. Warm salt will quickly and efficiently absorb moisture, but you will have to clean the shoes from tiny residues that may remain on the insole.

Second life hack

If you don't have time to wait for the salt to absorb moisture, you can also use a hair dryer but only in the cold mode. Hot temperatures can harm the fabric, sole, and skin. To avoid damaging the sole and deforming the shoe, turn on the cool mode.

Third life hack

When we buy shoes, we usually immediately throw the small sachets of round powder that come with them in the trash. These sachets are filled with silica gel, and you should keep them in case of force majeure. Silica gel absorbs moisture efficiently. You can buy the product in hardware and household stores.
