#HauteHack: How To Fix Scuff Marks From Leather Shoes

By  | 

Here at Hauterfly HQ, we understand why it’s necessary to keep fashion hacks handy; you never know when you might need them. So much so, that we bring you atleast two hacks per week to make your life easier. Be it a dilemma in the beauty department — where you need to know quick ways to cover up your dark circles — or a simple fashion hack about breaking into brand new (and really tight) shoes. Whatever the problem, we’ve got your back.

I know how upsetting it can get when you pull out one of your favourite leather shoes from the shoe closet and notice scuff marks on them. I consider this another reason for a heartbreak! Shoe lover or not, finding perfect shoes that have a special place in your heart usually makes it to most girl’s shopping checklist. So, finding a scuff mark on a particular shoe does not only mean not being able to wear them anymore. It also leads to seeking out a similar pair that’s probably going to fill the void in your shoe closet.

But not anymore! Thanks to all the research I’ve put in, I’ve figured out that fixing a scuff, especially from a patent leather shoe, is as easy as it gets. Here’s what you need to do. Dab some petroleum jelly on the scuff mark that is visible on the leather shoe. You need to put enough jelly so as to cover the mark entirely. Now, use a cotton bud or a soft cloth and buff gently. Keep repeating this till the mark disappears. If you think you need to restore the shine on your shoe, gently clean it using glass cleaner. Now that’s pretty easy, ain’t it?
