2. Keep Your White Sneakers Clean
Of course, after wearing them a lot on your city trip vacations, your sneakers won’t look that proper any more. For cleaning them you should follow our guide for how to make them look like new or try the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
3. Break In Your Heels
To make your new summer sandals pain free right from the first step, break them in properly by following this hack.
4. …And Make Them Even More Comfortable
It really works: tape together your third and fourth toe to avoid pain in the front part of the sole of your foot. This way the sensitive, pain-causing nerve between the toes gets bemused.
5. Fight Sweat Stains With Lemons
Sometimes sweat stains are so tenacious that even the washing machine will fail to remove them. A mix of water and lemon juice, sprayed on the underarm area (or other sweat stain parts) will help. By gently rubbing to soaked fabric together the stains will start to lift. After this, the washing machine will do the rest. Very resistent stains need a longer soaking time – salt helps for the scrubbing.
6. …Or Aspirin
As an alternative to the lemon juice you can use Aspirin to remove sweat stains. Five tablets in a sink full of water and have the same effect as an OxiClean solution. Let you shirt soak overnight, wash it the next day and it will be as good as new!
7. Use Antiperspirant At The Right Time
This is no joke: By applying deo already at night, it performs better the next day. Deodorant works by stopping moisture escaping from the body. Because the skin is drier and sweat glands are less active at night the antiperspirant has enough time to clog the sweat ducts. Goodbye you nasty stains!

12. Take Advantage Of The Birk & Stalk Trend
When it’s really hot your feet tend to swell and feel heavy. In the heat of summer walking on it’s own can be challenging, even more exhausting it is when wearing big or high shoes. Thank god for Birkenstocks! They are comfortable (and therefore make walking fleet-footed) and prevent a light and fresh feeling of the feet. No use to add, that they are also very trending.
