On my recent trip to Italy, I discovered something that some of you are probably already familiar with, but I was not. Our vacation was taken with a tour group, and the tour guide booked much fancier hotels than we probably would have on our own. A couple of those hotels provided a shoe sponge, in addition to the regular amenities.
Now, I know that shoe polish bottles come with little sponges on the end, but these sponges were meant to be used without polish. I was so delighted to find that a quick rub left shoes shiny and spot-free! After doing lots of walking in the rain and snow, it was nice to be able to at least start the next day with a fresh-looking pair of shoes.
I'm thankful for new-to-me discoveries. Have you ever used a shoe sponge?
Hmm, this is the first I've heard of a shoe sponge.ReplyDelete
I was really amazed at how well (and mess-free!) they worked.Delete
Never heard of them, i will look into it. Sweetie has lots and lots of shoes, and he hates polishing them.ReplyDelete
My only regret was that I didn't try it out sooner.Delete
