How To: Polish Your Shoes

The method used here is sound, but there are variations to make your work easier.

1.  inbetween building the undercoats of polish, quickly run a flame over the drying polish.  this ensures the polish goes into the grain and evens the coat.

2.  instead of using a cloth, use a wadded up cotton ball.  it uses less polish and makes your work a little easier.

3.  really, dont use too much water.

remember that a real shine is only possibly with a wax, not the cream/soft type of shoe polish.  and if your results are lack luster, you need to rub longer.
