Nothing decreases the value of an otherwise nice pair of sandals like toe, heel and foot marks on the insoles. Such marks on your own shoes make them look worn and dirty if you slip off your sandals at the pool or beach. Heel, toe and foot marks on pre-owned sandals for sale decrease the value and make them much harder to move.
They might look like permanent foot imprints, but they’re really just ground-in dirt and stains. They can be challenging to remove through standard shoe cleaning methods because the grime has been pushed down into the cloth fibers of the insoles repeatedly over time. Fortunately, with the right materials and about 15 minutes of time, you can probably erase most of those hideous marks.
What You’ll Need
- Spray shoe cleaner (spray carpet and upholstery cleaner should work as well)
- Old, soft toothbrush that you don’t plan to ever use again
- Old washcloth or dishcloth
