|Save Yourself From Stinky Keens!|
So today is Friday and I was hoping to write each Friday about Homework because it really is cool and important. But the truth is, I’m so darn tired from a late night at the ER last night (story at a later post – all is good: 10 blue stitches on my bungee-jumping-in-the-house 7 year old’s leg) so I thought I’d write about the MOST PRESSING element in our lives right now: the STANK from our kid’s Keens.
We LOVE our Keens. In fact, when we were in Colorado last year, we became the Von Trapp Family of Keen wearers. Each of us in our own well ventilated yet toe-covering pair just in time for our musical revue – I mean our river rafting trip.
But I digress.
The smell coming from our kid’s Keens is so rotten, we’ve banished the shoes to dark, lonely places in the house so we don't' have to see, hear or smell them as they fester... But apparently, that’s exactly the problem.
Here’s the solution according to eHow dot com:
n go to your refrigerator
n get out your Baking Soda
n sprinkle it on LIBERALLY
n shake out Baking Soda
n throw Keen’s in gentle washing machine cycle with just a little detergent
n air dry with a fan and a sprinkle of baking soda.
For any other shoe I would not go through this ridiculous, high-maintenance process of care. What is this, a poodle? But for the Keens, I will. Because they really are the ULTIMATE kids, summer shoe. Stink or not.
Agree or not? Have a better idea? Hate baking soda? Lemme know.
Namaste & Three Cheers. –A
