The case of the boot and the Twinkle Toes Talc!
Went down the village to vote and then quickly popped into the Co-op to grab some pasta for a quick and easy dinner! It was LOVELY, diced bacon a nice salad and some yummy garlic bread.
Loaded the dishwasher, tidied the kitchen, took the tin foil from the grill pan and put it in the bin, just as I bent down to put it in the bin, SPLAT. Bacon fat all over my lovely green, suede boot!
I resisted temptation to wipe it off and with some cyber help, cornstarch was recommended. No cornstarch in cupboard I grabbed at Amelia's "Tinkerbell Magic Talc" (she calls in twinkle toes powder!) and smothered my poor boot! At least I have magic on my side.
Hey ho, if it doesn't work at least my boot will smell nice and fresh and it will be a great excuse to treat myself to another pair of boots...or two....there must be some bargains out there, right?
