This Twitter ‘life hack’ explains how to get creases out of your sneakers
Shoes. These days, most of us in the civilised world wear them. Obviously, you bogans in Queensland kinda see them as an optional extra, but most of us love a good pair of shoes. It’s not even a stretch to suggest that after the old-fashioned double-plugger, a good set of sneakers is right up there with the most versatile and reliable. The downside to this is that even if you keep them clean, sneakers can start to look pretty f**ken scungy after a while. Fortunately, Twitter is here to save the day…
If you’ve ever had a pair of sneakers you really liked because they were just so goddamn comfy, you’ll know how annoying it can be when you one day realise they’re no longer fit for anything other than bumming around the house.
One of the key signs that your joggers are getting a bit past their use-by-date isn’t even the smell.
Yeah, nah, it’s the creases.
Shantel De Bonsu – a Twitter user and YouTuber – is here to help with those creases.
If this chick knows anything about sneakers it’s…well…it’s the headline of the article. Here’s how she does it:
“Step 1: stuff your shoe with the socks/old clothes or tissue paper to the point where you can’t see the crease anymore and when you press on the top of the shoe it doesn’t move.”
Rightio, sounds like a lot of tissue, but if a few trees have to cark it in the name of fashion, who the f**k are we to complain?
“Step 2: wet your small towel or cloth with hot water, then squeeze the water out so it’s damp…
That’s a whole step there. Don’t miss it.
“Step 3: place your towel or cloth on top of the crease.”
Yeah, rightio, you could probably be combine those into one step, but you’re the expert. We’ll let it slide.
“Step 4: iron the towel or cloth with VIM but be sure to keep lifting the iron up or you’ll burn your shoe! Depending how bad the crease is determines the time in which it will take to get rid of the crease!”
F**k, hang on. We were mouthing off.
Do we iron the towel or the shoe? Ah, f**k, yeah, gotcha.
The answer’s back there in step 3. And, that’s it. If you haven’t melted your f**ken shoe, it should be fixed. Other blokes and blokettes online eve shared their images to show that it does work.
F**K YES, SHANTEL! Gonna try this s**t on me Crocs. Should be f**ken bonza!
Final thought: Next time you’re too f**ken pov to go to the store and replace your creased trainers, try this s**t out. You might save yourself a heap of cash to use on beer. And we all know that’s the goal. Good shit, Shantel. You get a Top Sheila award. You rule!
