Shine Up Those Shoes

Okay, if you are like me, you buy kids shoes used or pass them down. I just received 5 pairs of hand-me-downs from my sister-in-law (Mother of 3 beautiful girls). 3 of the pairs are white shoes. I decided to shine them up a little the other day with a mixture of baking soda and water. I mixed baking soda with a little water to form a paste. I then used an old ( or if you are mad at your husband at the time, his..ha ha)toothbrush to brush the paste on the shoes. Once I was done a took a damp cloth and washed off what was left of my baking soda paste. The shoes were almost good as new. Let's face it, white shoes never look the same after a couple days worth of wear. Anyway, I also did this to a pair of leather shoes Missy Priss has out grown.

Good Luck and Happy Shinning!!
