In need of a good cleaning

25 January 2011 // Filed under Posts

Every day I exit my house and find myself like the British in India. Skating across the centimeter thick ice that lines the sidewalks my silver rubber boots are to the New England winter what the canvas trouser is to subtropical climates, neither functional nor native. Instead I should have a pair of winter boots, those hideous plastic, canvas, and fur lined atrocities of the fashion world. But I refuse!

Only issue with my silver space age boots from Kenneth Cole were the scuffs marks on the toe. Determined to wear them I scoured the internet for home remedies. One site suggested white toothpaste. That failed. Another suggested acetone, the main ingredient in nail polish remover. Anything that has the power to remove acrylic I was wary of trying but it seemed to have enthusiastic support on forums. So taking a q-tip I applied a small amount to the effected area and scrubbed. It worked! My moon boots look as good as new.
