Welcome to Two-Minute Tuesday, where I share quick tips, tidbits, and ideas.
This week I want to share a quick tip on extending the life of your strappy sandals.
I love to wear strappy sandals all summer. They're perfect because I can wear them with jeans and a cute shirt, or with slacks and business casual attire. They look dressier than flip flops, but they're super comfy.
However, I have also noticed that strappy sandals tend to get these annoying stringy things hanging off of the straps after just a few wearings.
Maybe no one else notices, but when I look down at my cute shoes and see these ugly strings, I feel tacky and less put-together. It bugs me because it makes my shoes look much more worn out than they actually are.
Here's a quick tip to help keep your straps looking newer for longer.
First, cut off any existing hanging strings, as close to the strap as possible.
Next, apply a clear sealant on just the edges of the straps. I used Mod Podge because I had it on hand and was out of clear nail polish, but I think clear nail polish would work the best.
Let the Mod Podge or nail polish dry and you're good to go! The sealant should prevent, or at least slow down, the unraveling of any strings on the edge of the straps.
Check back next Tuesday for another quick tidbit, or later in the week
for more in-depth posts on a multitude of topics.
