Vaseline Jelly tip!
So, I said when I launched this blog that it wouldn’t have household tips. I lied. I tried something yesterday that actually worked and although I’m sure someone thought/created/knew about it since the dawn of time I didn’t so I am stating right here and right now that I am the thinker upper of this fabulous tip. I can you know. It’s my blog. I can say what I want. You can’t stop me.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
I must wear shoes like a two year old. I put on a pair of navy leather shoes yesterday and discovered that the toes were all scuffed, like when toddlers run their toes along the walk or kick things over and over and over. These shoes were relatively new. Damn! Now what? The black Sharpie marker that I usually use to hide a multitude of sins wouldn’t do in this case. Out of the blue a thought came crashing into this clever, brilliant mind [happens often folks – just does – it’s a gift]
How it happened.
Have used this stuff forever to remove my eye makeup. [Another hint that I have hidden within this post.] So I grabbed that half pound jar, daintily dipped a finger in and lovingly smoothed it on the toe scuffs. The miracle happened right before my eyes. Scuff disappeared. A nice shining glow wrapped my shoes. And I’m thinking that it also might be a bit of protection from the black melty salty snow tufts that are still dotting every surface in America. Be sure and do the Dainty Dip…initially I executed the Plunging Scoop resulting in a huge glistening glob of goo and had to use a towel to wipe it off my shoe.
There you have it. A helpful hint. Let’s recap:
Vaseline. A miracle Jelly of Petroleum.
What do you use it for? Seriously. I want to know.
