Cornstarch + shoes

I am currently in a state of mild frustration over a pair of Sperrys that squeak.

One wiki article said I should put ample amount of talcum powder or cornstarch into the shoes’ soles, let it sit overnight, and the annoying squeak would be gone.


On the contrary, the squeak became louder.

Perhaps I should put a little water into the soles as well, to let the cornstarch harden? How about putting some eggs and salt and pepper as well? And throw in some rosemary, too?

I’m just fascinated at how kitchen stuff can go beyond the sink, ref, or cupboard. Shoes and cornstarch — who would ever link them in a common endeavor? (…which in my case, is a powdery fail…)
