DIY Dip-Dyed Shoes

If you like your shoes to have a touch of color even if the cold season comes or just thinking to renew their old color, here is a simple way to achieve this. All you need to use is: a pair of sneakers (preferably white), little petroleum jelly, fabric dye (color of your choice), baking soda and toothbrush. Mix the fabric dye according to the package instructions and prepare your shoes by removing laces and other removable parts. Put a layer of petroleum jelly on the rubber edges to protect them from the color and dip the tips of the shoes in the prepared mix just by getting them in and out. Add some more water to the dye bath and dip them again, this time, deeper. Clean the excess of liquid and create a smooth passage between the two shades using a cotton cloth. Allow a few minutes for the color to fixate and rinse the shoes with cold water. Let them dry for a few hours, then, remove the petroleum jelly by sprinkling some baking soda all over the rubber surface and scrubbing with an old toothbrush. Put on the shoe laces and enjoy your new shoes!
