Thrift Tips:How to clean used shoes for...re-use



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.

Anywho after that i toss them in the basket and usually bring the babies home. This week I had the pleasure of finding some boat shoes. Similar to the sperry shoes but made by docker. 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.



Both shoes on the top are mens...dont pass by that section without giving it a good look first.

The water trapped between the cloth and the
surface of your vehicle acts like a lubricant as it's transferred into the storage
cells of the chamois. So if you feel thazt your cultured marble products have become dull,
then wax them to restore that original glaze. Check your car carefully before you pull
away for dings, leaks, oor other damage.
