How to Clean Scuff Marks Off Shoes

Frugal tip on how to clean scuff marks off of shoes. Make shoes last longer and look better. My daughter comes to me upset saying how her sister is never allowed to wear her shoes again! Yep, I hear this a lot in this house. So when my oldest wore her sister's shoes and left them full of scuff and dirty marks I told my daughter to give me a minute and I would clean them.

So here is the shoe. Now this is a leather shoe so gauge whether you could do this on your shoe. I have found if it is not something like suede it works wonderfully.


Take a slightly damp scrub side of a sponge. Add just a light sprinkle of cleanser and then go around the shoe lightly scrubbing the dirt and scuff marks. I wipe off with a damp cloth or paper towel. You do not have to get the shoe wet.


Waa-laa! Much better and wearable again. I have also used a Magic Eraser as well, but I am always out of them so this works great around here. Sibling harmony restored.

Such a smart Mom-I'm so impressed with you "young girls" who take such pride in caring for your families and teaching such basic skills. I think all the SUPER MOMS must be Bloggers..or so it appears

A great tip....and a good skill to learn.

But did you know that Magic Eraser, and Comet both have high levels of cancer causing ingredients....they are both full of toxic chemicals.

Just thought I would mention it to you in case you were unaware of it.

I agree with the comment above, Elaine....you are a super mom! Thanks for this tip and I'll definitely be trying it. I don't have siblings sharing shoes, but it's still nice to know!

Thanks for joining in with Pinned it Made it Monday today.

Blessings,

Wow, that worked great. I love magic erasers but find for the price they crumble too easy - I wish they were made of a stronger material.
