Keeping the home tidy is very important, because with everything in its place it will be very easy for you to find it, but also because where there is order it is easier for there to be a correct cleaning.
Something that often causes problems in terms of order at home is our shoes. They often end up in any hole or space that is not intended for them, with the consequent untidiness and lack of hygiene. In addition to the time you can waste when you want to find the pair of shoes you want to wear or, much worse, you only find the shoe for one foot but you don’t know where the other is.
To ensure that your shoes are always tidy and you can easily locate them, we give you 4 tips that you can take into account when organising your shoes:
4 tips to organise your footwear:
1. Before storing and arranging your shoes, they must be clean and disinfected.
Being in direct contact with the dirt in the street and also in contact with the sweat on our feet, our shoes are very likely to catch micro-organisms. It is very important to disinfect the inside of the shoe, since a large number of germs and bacteria accumulate that can easily come into contact with our skin and are also the cause of bad smells. To disinfect them, use Shoe Disinfectant – Fresh Scent.
By spraying this product inside the shoe you will kill up to 99.9% of bacteria such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, viruses and other fungi that cause health problems such as ringworm of the foot or athlete’s foot. By eliminating all these micro-organisms you will also get rid of the bad smell in your shoes.
We must carry out this disinfection throughout the year, but especially in the summer, since it is when we sweat the most and this type of problem can occur.
2. Find a space to store them, if possible isolated from the rest of the clothes. You can use a shoe cabinet, but keep in mind that each shoe cabinet has a maximum capacity, if you use them to store more footwear than they can hold you can damage them.
Another alternative is to use shelves. You can use shelves that are not closed in cabinets to place your shoes. The advantage of this option is that your footwear will always be aired.
3. Fill the shoes with paper, so they will not lose their original shape. Use acid-free paper to avoid damaging them, it is not recommended to use newspaper as this could stain your shoes.
4. Sort them by seasons and, if you can, keep them in their original box so that they keep better and do not lose their shape, especially if you are going to keep them for a long time.
