Gardening can be a messy business, and it’s inevitable that your shoes will get muddy from time to time. But don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to keep your shoes clean while you garden! The first thing you should do is invest in some sturdy gardening boots or clogs. These types of footwear provide extra protection for your feet and will help keep the mud off of them. Oh, and never, ever, never work in the garden barefoot not matter how many callouses or the thickness of foot fungus you have.
If by chance (or misfortune) mud does find its way onto your shoes while gardening, there are methods for cleaning them back up again without damaging their material or coloration. A simple solution such as baking soda mixed with warm water can work wonders on removing dirt stains; alternatively rubbing alcohol is great for tougher spots like grass stains!
So next time those pesky mud patches appear on our beloved garden kicks - no need fretting over whether we'll ever wear them again - simply bust out one these trusty solutions instead and watch those grime-filled worries fade away like dust in the wind.
