Yes, I understand. However, I saw a finisher and trimming machine. They must use it for some of their tasks. Just didn't notice an out-sole stitching machine. Do you know that their process entails hand-stitching all of there re-soles?
I may be in a smaller minority...I have one brush that I use for dusting each day, and one that I use for polishing. I don't have anything lighter than chestnut and a little bit of mottling doesn't bother me (not that I've seen any, mind you).
Since my unfortunate experiment with Lexol (I didn't realise that it was liquid and manged to pour it into my shoes), I haven't touched it since. I am feeling braver now. How to you used it (the brown bottled)? Do you use a very little, as with shoe cream and wax? Or do you just generally splosh it all over? How long do you leave it and do you brush the shoes afterwards? With thanks, as always, M.
