There's A Way To Stop Your Feet Slipping In Sweaty Sandals

Sandals are a godsend in hot weather, but they do have a downside: they can slip when your feet are sweaty.

But it turns out that there’s a brilliant hack you can use to make this summer slip hazard a thing of the past.

Fashion expert Clemmie Fieldsend explained to The Sun that if you put a large plaster on both of your feet before stepping into your sandals, they won’t slip off.

It’s because the plaster acts as a sponge, soaking up any excess sweat to ensure you can get around comfortably this summer.

But don’t worry if you prefer slingbacks to traditional sandals, as TikTok has your back with a handy hack for them too.

According to TikToker @roseknows11, a good way to stop slingbacks from slipping off your feet in warm weather is to purchase some ribbon, then wrap it around your feet to secure them!

“Do your slingbacks slide off your heel? Try this trick!” she wrote alongside a video demonstrating the hack.

These hacks will be particularly important for anyone living in the UK this week, where temperatures are predicted to soar. 

According to the Met Office, the UK will unbelievably be hotter than Hawaii thanks to the arrival of a Spanish plume.

The Met Office's Steven Keates told the Mirror Online: “There’s not been much in the way of exceptionally warm days or hot days yet this year, but that is set to change.

“We’re set to see probably a brief spell of hot weather at the end of this coming week.”

Temperatures are set to peak this Friday (17 June) when they could be as high as 32C in the South East and London.

However, Keates said: “It could possibly be a little hotter than that - mid-thirties are possible.”

Friday is also set to be the hottest day of the year so far - a title currently held by 17 May, which had a peak of 27.5C in Heathrow.

But it's not just your feet and general hydration that you need to watch out for in this weather, you also need to keep a close eye on your four-legged friends.

The RSPCA has also issued an urgent warning for people in the UK, advising them against taking their dogs on walks in the heat.

RSPCA dog welfare specialist Esme Wheeler told MyLondon: "The truth is walking dogs in hot weather can be a silent killer.

"While the majority would never leave our dogs in a car on a hot day, or even take our dogs for a really long walk in the heat, many people may still be putting their dogs at risk even on a short walk, or taking them to places such as fields and beaches with little or no shade."
