An inexpensive way of drying your sneakers

We know a lot of people get their sneakers washed professionally, but for the Do-It-Yourself crew, we've got you covered.

We know that Stacey Norman is all about her shoes, and when it comes to her kicks, she is very particular. 

We have to love the way a person can take pride in their shoes, it says a lot about that person's image and how they carry themselves. 

After TikTok cleaner sensation Mbali Nhlapho made her mark with people all over South Africa and social media, dare anyone else come to the forefront with their cleaning hacks. 

One woman has shared a remarkably savvy hack that helps with drying your sneakers after you have washed them. 

Sometimes when you leave your sneakers lying down on the ground to dry, they dry, but a stain forms. Even when you try drying your sneakers on the washing line, they change their shape. 

Not ideal at all. 

This is why we were so impressed with this simple but effective drying hack.
