Help! My shoes got wet. Can I store them straight away?No. If you put wet shoes straight inside the wardrobe your whole wardrobe can become damp. This can lead to mould growth, which can spread throughout your shoe collection and even onto any clothes hanging nearby in the wardrobe. To prevent this happening, dry out wet shoes fully and then brush off any dirt or caked mud with a small, soft-bristled shoe brush (it should come off quite easily when it’s dry). Once clean and dry, your shoes can go back in the closet. You could also hanging moisture absorbers in your wardrobe to prevent any accidental mishaps.

Making these shelves adjustable in height will allow you to accommodate a range of footwear, from slippers to boots. If you prefer fixed shelves, you’ll need to leave 12-18 centimetres clear between each shelf.Placing the shelves at an angle can work well, as it will allow you accommodate shoes in a depth shallower than 30 centimetres.10 Genius Shoe Storage Hacks
