- rubber gloves;
Rub the beeswax over the entirety of the shoe. Use dish washing gloves or rubber gloves, throw those on to keep your hands clean. The beeswax washes off pretty easily though so this isn’t crucial.
Next, use a blow dryer to seal the deal. Melt the wax all over the shoe then let set for about 5 minutes before wearing! Splash a little water to test out your new waterproof shoes.
This trick is so much cheaper and easier than buying a bottle of waterproof spray at the store! The best part is that there’s no harsh chemicals floating around afterwards.
