So, you’ve stepped in dog poop. And you weren’t wearing those nice, convenient smooth-soled ankle boots, either – you had on your most ridgy-soled pair of cross-trainers, or the expensive snow boots guaranteed to grip icy surfaces (and, it turns out, other more icky substances).
The last time this happened, you put the shoe on the mud porch and went into denial until the seasons changed or your husband threw the shoe away by mistake – but you don’t want to lose another Adidas to doody. Now what?
We interviewed civilians, pet experts, colleagues, and even fashion writers to find out what they do when shoe meets poo. Some of their answers came from left field (Play-Doh!), others from the junk drawer (chopsticks!), but we hope you’ll find at least one solution that works for you.
