    Protect Shoes From Moisture With This Smart Water-Resistant Hack

    No umbrella necessary.

    by , ,

    What you need:

    · Canvas shoes

    · Beeswax

    · Hair dryer


    1. Heat up the beeswax with the hair dryer set to high. When slightly softened, rub the beeswax all over the shoe.

    2. With the hair dryer set to high, melt the beeswax into the shoes until fully melted and absorbed by the canvas.

    3. Let dry for at least 10 minutes before going in the water. While the shoe will not be completely waterproof, it will be water-resistant and dry quickly.
