3. Cleaning and Sanitizing:

- Remove the Bugs: Using a soft brush, gently remove any visible bugs or eggs from your shoes. Pay attention to seams and stitching.

- Spot Treatment: For stubborn stains or bug residue, create a mixture of mild soap and warm water. Gently scrub affected areas with a soft cloth or toothbrush.

- Deep Cleaning: If bugs have made a home in the interior of your shoes, remove the insoles and clean them separately. You can also use an upholstery cleaner on the fabric portion of the shoe.

4. Natural Remedies:

- Tea Tree Oil Solution: Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with water and spray the solution inside your shoes. Tea tree oil acts as a natural bug repellent.
