You’ve heard it a thousand times, but let me make it clear: never leave your wet pointe shoes in your dance bag! Not allowing them to properly dry will decrease the life of your expensive pointe shoes.

Many types of shellacs and glues are available for re-hardening pointe shoes. One in particular that I have heard of is called Fabulon, which can be purchased at your local hardware store or sometimes even through dance stores.
