Woman reveals genius hack to help you get rid of creases in trainers involving socks, towel, iron and hot water

THERE is nothing more irritating than when your brand new pair of trainers start developing creases.

Shantel dé Bonsu – a self-confessed ‘trainer connoisseur’ – has explained her simple method for getting your kicks looking brand new again.

In a viral Twitter thread, she explained that all you need is “socks/ old clothes/ tissue paper”, a small towel or cloth, an iron and hot water.

Alongside some before and after pics of trainers she had used the de-creasing trick on, she then wrote: “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.”

“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

“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!”

Shantel added: “HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YA! Send me your before and after pictures too.”

She also shared a YouTube video which showed her demonstrating how to use the hack.
