Pointe Shoe Care

So, at a local dance store they told how to re-harden the boxes of my shoes. And I thought I would share that with you.

 What You Will Need:
- paint brush
- dead pointe shoes
- oven
- acrylic based floor wax
-small container
- baking tray
- aluminum foil


1. Reheat oven to 250 degrees.
2.Pour a very small amout of floor wax into small container (With this a little goes a long way).
3. Take paint brush and paint the floor wax in the entire box of your shoes.
4. Repeat on other shoe.
5. Line baking tray with aluminum foil and place pointe shoes on tray.
6. Now turn OFF oven and put pointe shoes in, keep in there for 2-4 hours.

When you take them out they will be hard and ready to dance in.
