Clean area to be repaired, by wiping away dirt and oils. Use the included
sanding stick to further clean and roughen up the surface to be repaired.

be sure the area to be repaired is clean, dry and roughened.
Squeeze out a bead of Shoe Goo directly on the area to be repaired. Use
the included stick to spread the Goo evenly over the area.
Wetting the stick in water before using it makes spreading easier.

Awesome DIY (color: black)
NEW!! Awesome DIY is a heat-curing heel repair to build up worn down heels.
First clean to remove dirt. Uuse the included sanding stick to roughen up area to be repaired.
Cut a strip of plastic (we used a clear file folder) or cut the Awesome DIY package itself, and use cellophane tape to create a barrier around the area to be repaired.
Squeeze out enough Awesome DIY to fill the area, and use the included ice cream stick to fill in all spaces, and smooth the top surface.
Using a receptical (we used the bottom of a water bottle) filled with boiling hot water, simply dip the heel into the water. Be careful not to touch the sides of the receptical for at least 1 minute, to preserve the shape of the repair. Allow the heel to remain in the water for 5 full minutes.
After heating the repair for 5 minutes, remove from water, remove taped plastic barrier. Test to be sure the Awesome DIY has fully cured by sticking a toothpick in it. If the toothpick comes out clean, the repair is finished!
A hair dryer can also be used to heat the repair area, but be sure to get enough heat deep into the repair, at least 7 or 8 minutes. Hold the hair dryer steadily on each section of the repair. Check with toothpick.
