My oldest has a slight obsession with Puma shoes. Truth be told so do I. How is it that a five year old (almost six, if you ask him) can have a preference and know the difference between shoes? In an effort to try and keep a running, jumping, playing in mud, grass stains type of kid shoes clean I tried a new cleaning product. Guess what it is?
Toothpaste and a Toothbrush.
Shocking right? Mr. Clean came upstairs and saw me scrubbing Little Puma's shoes as they were covered in toothpaste. He said, "Oh, no what are trying now?" I said, "Magic, just wait." Although acting confident I was thinking "holy crap I just ruined a 3 week old pair of Puma shoes". Much to mine and Mr. Clean's surprise it worked fantastically. I seriously couldn't believe it. Here is a picture of his shoes before I took a toothbrush and toothpaste to them.
and after the T&T attack.....
Why didn't I do this with the other 4 pairs I have thrown away? If you have little boys you NEED to use this on their gym shoes. It will save you a ton of money and keep those sweet little men looking good in their Puma swag!
Do you have any cleaning tricks like this? If so, please fill us all in!
