This life hack has gone viral on social media and benefitted people across the world. Here's how you can do it all by yourself.
There are some things in life that don't necessarily make a huge difference but are just straight up annoying. Nothing annoys us more than finding creases on our trainers. We buy leather shoes and trainers not just because they are useful and comfortable, but also because they look good. However, they crease easy and no matter how much we try to maintain them, it is only a matter of time. This is where life hacks come in. They go all the way from simple and fast ways of folding clothes to (apparently) removing the creases off your trainers. A user on Twitter recently shared the hack to removing these annoying creases and the post/idea has gone viral! Since our shoes don't come cheap an take a real punishing, everyone wants to know how to make them last longer.
This hack is pretty simple and does not require a lot of time, and the materials required are easily available too. Firstly, you're going to need a pair of shoes (obviously). Then you're going to need some tissue paper or socks (basically, an old fabric but a good amount of it), an iron, and some hot water. The trick to removing those annoying creases was uploaded to social media by Twitter user and YouTuber Shantel De Bonsu.
Shantel tweeted: "Step 1: stuff your shoe with the socks/old clothes or tissue paper to the point where you can't see the crease anymore and when you press on the top of the shoe it doesn't move." So far, it isn't that hard at all. Seems like the entire procedure is going to be a walk in the park and the results? Well, they are going to be just perfect. Okay, let's not get ahead of ourselves. On to step two. "Step 2: wet your small towel or cloth with hot water, then squeeze the water out so it's damp..."
"Step 3: place your towel or cloth on top of the crease." Now this is where we need to start being a little more careful. The next step is going to require parental guidance if you're a child or a responsible friend or relative/sibling around if you think you're clumsy and accident prone. The YouTuber continued, "Step 4: iron the towel or cloth with VIM but be sure to keep lifting the iron up or you'll burn your shoe! Depending how bad the crease is determines the time in which it will take to get rid of the crease!"

Well...? Is it gone yet? Did you follow every step as instructed? It should be. This life hack totally works (just like all the other popular ones do. That's why they're popular). If it didn't work then it's probably because you don't know what VIM is skipped that part or experiment. VIM is a cleaning product that can be easily found online or in a department store nearby. If not, then you can replace it with another equally strong cleaning product. They work the same.
This life hack was shared by Shantel on the 15th of April and has become insanely popular with retweets after retweets. The original post was retweeted over 150,000 times and had over 337,000 likes. No matter who you are or what you do, those are pretty impressive numbers. Twitter users were pretty impressed by this trick and a lot of them have even spoken up about how it actually works. It doesn't even take a lot of time to execute and what's better than having your shoes look brand new again?
People on social media were pretty impressed by the life hack.
