DIY- Scuff Removal (2 simple steps)

13 Apr

Good afternoon!  I thought I’d share my scuff removal tips with you all as I clean my heels up after a night out.  I try to clean my heels after each wear, keeping them beautiful for many years!  It’s also much easier to maintain them with a quick wipe down and scuff removal than to let it build up. I’ve always been able to clean my leather shoes pretty easily but had such a hard time with patent leather until one day it somehow popped in my head to try nail polish remover on a big red scuff and IT WORKED!  Since then I’ve wiped away dozens of scuffs successfully!

What you’ll need:

*nail polish remover

*1, maybe 2 Q-tips (cotton swabs)

* 2 minutes of your time

 

Once you have your Q-tips and nail polish remover, you simply dip the Q-tip into the nail polish remover and gently wipe over the scuff in a back and forth motion until it disappears! Once the scuff is removed, flip the Q-tip around and use the dry side to wipe off any access nail polish remover. It’s that easy! and YES this removes those unsightly red Louboutin scuffs! I have used this method on leather and patent leather and have found that it works especially well on patent leather because the surface is so slick.  I have NOT tried it on suede because quite frankly I’m scared that it would smear the stain rather than remove it.  I hope this helps you all next time you have a shoe in need of scuff removal!
