Interesting. I'm wearing a pair of Whiskey Shell Cordovans from Vass today, and it was raining when I went to lunch. I now see small water spots on them even after I wiped them down with a cotton cloth. Hopefully they disappear over a few days or so, otherwise I will try something different.
Does anyone else know if the 50% white vinegar solution is safe for whiskey shell? And if so, how long does one wait before applying it?
Also, when I wiped them down this afternoon w/ the cotton cloth, I buffed with a fair amount of pressure. Is this bad?
