Haha I used to save the boxes / tubes for nice scotch. Then I had like 30 of them piled in a corner so threw them all out

Whats the general consensus on using a bit of scotch for shoe waxing/polishing?

I believe that Scotch Guard is a water proofing spray not a polish.   I would think that using some scotch guard on your shoes would be a good idea if you walk around in them outside, which  I generally don't.  I wound not advise depending on scotch guard as a means of polishing your shoes but instead for waterproofing them, mine are all waterproofed by the factory, however I may add some additional water proofing as well.

Some people prefer to use rubbing alcohol instead of water.

 

So why not scotch? wink.gif

My understanding is that most water/alcohol solutions are used in the aid of stretching leather. Not sure I would use spirits to polish my shoes, maybe to stretch them...

The question was regarding Scotch, not Scotch Guard.  Please... Please don't spray your "nice" shoes with Scotch Guard.
