Well I use Garnier micellar water.  The type I use is the  blue cap that works on waterproof mascara.  Well this works so well I decided to clean my dingy looking side soles of some of my sketchers....back to white.   Thought I would pass that one on.

I’d never have thought to try that! 

 

I have the same product but I rarely use it; I usually use the wipes to remove my makeup. I’ll have to try it on my dingy soles.

Re: New use for micellar water

If it can clean the dirty side walls of my sneakers I'm not sure I would want it on my face!

IMHO, micellar water is not good to use on your skin...it's a basically a petroleum-based chemical solvent similar to paint thinner. It's no wonder that it can clean side walls of sneakers! i

I don’t think it’s an indicator that it’s harsh. I use face wipes to clean my feet and sandals at the end of the day and they are not harsh at all.

Re: New use for micellar water

I toss my skechers (and DH's) in the washer. They come out beautifully colored & white side walls alike.

 

I also use micellar on my face to remove makeup, never thouth of using it for anythnig else.

Re: New use for micellar water

I bought some micellar water once and didn't like it. So now I use it to 'quick-clean' my makeup brushes. Just put a little on a paper towel then swipe my brushes on it....back 'n forth until they come clean. Works like a charm.

Re: New use for micellar water

I use Simple micellar water at times and so far have had no problems with it.  I have extremely sensitive skin and - knock on wood --- have had not issues so far.  It doesn't seem irritating at all.
