Mum reveals her VERY simple trick for  stopping her $8 Kmart slides from squeaking as she walks

An Australian mum has revealed a clever trick to stop her $8 Kmart sandals from squeaking while she walks.

The department store’s double buckle footbed slides are a popular option among customers and seem to replicate the Birkenstock design, but a constant squeakiness often occurs when worn.

Posting to the Kmart Mums Facebook group, Vivian Maple said to silence the shoes she pierces each arch a few times with scissors.

‘It will leave holes in your shoes but no one will see them anyway once you wear them,’ she said online.

‘Afterwards I did a few laps around the house and no more farting noises,’ Vivian said.

‘I’m glad because I was going to throw my sandals out. Now I can wear them this summer. Hopefully this trick helps others here.’

The slides are made from a synthetic material which is able to be easily pierced to create the tiny holes in each shoe.
