Hello lovely fashionista's
the Broke Fatshionista is back from vacation and I cannot wait to share some of my pics but as I upload and begin to pick through and edit ill leave you with some of my recent thrift finds and a tip for those used shoes.....
Finding sz 9-10 used shoes has become a daunting task the more and more I thrift...and I become overjoyed when I find a pair of shoes that I like, with some wear still left in them for my size foot. Yes oh yes I praise the thrifting Gods and pray their color tag is 50% that week lol for an even better deal.
TIP: When looking for shoes never pass over the mens section.
It is always a great idea to clean everything you thrift if at all possible immediately after bringing the item home and inside your house. Not saying I have found a critter in my items but I do this to be safe. Some items that may call for dry cleaning I throw in the freezer for an hr, which will kill hidden bugs or whatever maybe in them...then I get them cleaned. I do this with shoes also.
The way I disinfect used/thrifted shoes
- Throw them in a bag and into the freezer for an 1hr-2 (solely up to you)
- You can mix a small amount of alcohol and a tiny bit of water into a spray bottle and spray the inside of shoes...the alcohol will kill germs and old bacteria
- I also spray the outer and inner part of the shoe with disinfectant
- Put a deodorizing powder inside the shoe to freshen the smell
|A few of my thrifted shoes the blue with bows and the brown are some recent finds|
Now you have some clean used shoes and are good to go. I take no chances when putting my toes into something and you shouldn't either, enjoy the thrifting tips and more to come.
