I can't begin to tell you how many times I've ruined a pair of shoes by walking across a muddy soccer field. But, not any more...here's why.
Take the oldest pair of shoes you can find. It will be better if they are water-proof, and keep them in your car. The next time you go to a game or practice and the field is in questionable condition, slip on your game shoes and fear no more! Once you return to the car, slip them off and into a plastic bag that you have stored inside your car. There's no reason to get your car dirty as well. To keep your car smelling fresh, keep a dryer sheet under your seat, it will absorb all of those foul odors. Here's another Daily Shortcut. If you ever need to wash a pair of sneakers, place the clean, wet sneakers in front of the vent of your refrigerator overnight. In the morning, they'll be dry.
