We’ve all been there: you’ve splashed out on a pair of [insert label of choice here] suede heels in a to-die-for hue, only to wear them on the one rainy day of the week, spill your morning latte on one and get mud marks on the other. Disaster.
But all is not lost – thanks to one lifesaver of a Twitter user (praise be), who has let the world in on her suede-cleaning secret: micellar water.
“Micellar water has just took [sic] all the stains out my suede heels,” Kiera O’Hagan shares. “Everyone needs to try this.”
And so, we did. And we can happily report that a pair of millennial pink Country Road slides, once dotted with dirt stains, have never looked cleaner – all thanks to a couple of quick dabs with a cotton wool ball dipped in micellar water.
According to Glamour, who shared O’Hagan’s tweet, the skin-cleansing solution also works a treat on white sneakers. Who knew?
