Our feet and our footwear work really hard for us every day - sometimes carrying quite a heavy burden.
But do we play our part in paying back some of that hard work?
One way is to give your feet a soothing footbath
using apple cider vinegar which helps with the odor-causing bacteria by naturalizing the pH levels of the skin.
Here are a further ten top tips that could well help...
Apply sandpaper to the soles to roughen them up and achieve a better grip.
Prevention of blisters?
Easy to resolve by applying some clear gel deodorant to the inner heels each time you wear your shoes or trainers - especially if you know they are going to be on your feet for some time.
Just put an unused tea bag
in each shoe to absorb any unpleasant smells.
Water stains on your leather shoes/boots?
The answer is a combination of vinegar and a toothbrush. Dip it into the vinegar and brush on to the leather to remove the stains.
Time to buy a new pair of shoes?
Always wait until later in the day because feet have a tendency to swell during the day and, if you buy early in the day, they could well be too tight.
Panty liners are ideal for absorbing unwanted sweat. Just place one in each shoe as a liner.
Apply some petroleum jelly
using a Q-tip and rub gently until the scuff is gone. This works especially well on patent leather shoes.
Rain got into your boots?
Bunch up newspapers and place inside the boots to soak up any moisture.
Suffering from cold feet?
Give your them a toasty treat by lining your shoes or boots with some woolen fabric.
Leather boots looking shabby?
Revitalize by rubbing the leather with the inside of a banana skin.
