Posted by ADDITION COLLABORATOR
As we’re approaching Spring/Summer in Hong Kong, the weather has become humid and rainy. Ladies must be distressed thinking about what shoes to wear. Well, Melissa jelly shoes, made of the patent material, Melflex® PVC, are your perfect choice. High Quality Melissa footwear ranges from flats, sandals, flip flops, boots, wedges, casual shoes, to even shoes for kids and babies. They are all water-resistant and breathable but also soft, lightweight and trendy. Melissa’s rubber shoes are definitely a must-have item for both adults and children. Although Melissa jelly shoes are well-known for their durability, taking proper care and maintaining them well can prolong their lifespan. Here in this shoe care guide, we have three useful basic tips for you to take care of your pairs of shoes:
Clean you jelly shoes frequently
After every wear, remember to use a wet towel or wipe to remove dirt attached to the surface of your shoes (See more on cleaning jelly shoes!). If there are any stubborn stains, you can try to rub them off with an eraser or wash them with soap or hand-wash. Please avoid dry cleaning or putting them into washing machines. You should also avoid using alcohol-based detergents at all cost, as alcohol may damage the surface of jelly shoes, hence speed up deterioration.
Place your jelly shoes in dry, cool areas
Remember to dry your Melissa jelly sandals or shoes after a rainy day. Protect your shoes by not putting them under the sun or blow-dry with hair dryers. High temperature accelerates aging of rubber, making it brittle and in the worst case scenario, crack. Also, please do not clip and hang dry them to avoid deformation. Melissa jelly shoes are water-resistant, so you just have to wipe them dry with a towel or simply let it air-dry under shadow. And remember to put it back to the shoes bag to keep the Melissa signature smells – our trademark – which is a mix of lollypops, candies and bubblegum.
