WFMW- shiny shoes

If you have leather, fake leather or shoes like those (smooth, shiny shoes) you can take some VO5 hair creme and a paper towel and give your shoes a big boost.  It covers scratches beautifully, shines up well and keeps the shoe from drying out.  There is no coloring to rub off on your clothes and if you are pressed for time to get to work, church or an evening out this tip is fast!  This works great on kids dress shoes as well.

I wanted to add to last week’s WFMW about getting laundry really clean.  If you do not have any oxiclean or you have some old or really set in stains you can dissolve 1/2 cup of Arm and Hammer Super Washer Soda in a glass of hotwater.  Add the liquid to your washer, let it fill and start washing long enough to thoroughly mix it into your clothing.  Turn off the washer and let sit over night.  In the morning add detergent and wash as usual.  I am amazed at some of the old, set in stains that this (or the Oxiclean liquid) has gotten out.   For more of the WFMW’s visit Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer.  You can click WFMW in my catagories to find archived entries.
