With the wet weather coming in I will have to do this. I am sick of trying to get shoes dry by the fire or radiators. I always say I am going to buy waterproofing to put on shoes but it is one of them things that when I am in the shops I dont think of so this will be a handy hack to have.

This is such a handy tutorial. I always ruin my suede boots in the snow bc I forget to waterproof my shoes. Thanks for the tutorial!

Definitely a must DIY!!
