Maybe in the future you could wrap the trees in cling film before procedures?

Played with my new hanger project lambskin polishing mitt yesterday while applying Saphir to my cordovans. Buffs much better than a brush and does not leave those small micro-lines. I highly recommend it for anyone with a decent amount of cordovan.

Are you referring to the $85 lambswool mitt? I use a discarded silk scarf in a rapid to and fro motion, produces a deep shine

Can some gurus here compare Burgol paste and cremes with Saphir pleas?

I ordered 3 from valmour but didn't use them much, I need to learn how to use them. They were not producing much shine on calf, guess I applied too much polish then. Perhaps they are good as the final touch

What is actually the hype about 'raised surface' shoe shining clothes/mitts ... silk has no raised surface but produces good shine?

Calf you should use cotton and water if you want a mirror shine. I just use my brushes to knock the dust off between wears.

The Lambswool Shoeshine Mitt is just for finishing and rebuffing. You should never apply polish to one - it would ruin it.

I use mine in the morning to rebuff and while traveling, again to rebuff.

I got a couple cheap lambswool mitts. I prefer them over brushes. Their only problem is that the wool is pretty shallow; I imagine higher-quality mitts are plusher.

mmm sorry but i have to disagree with that!!! cotton -cottonballs make mirror shine prosedure last for ages!and most of the time fibers from cotton traped in the wax and make it look awfull! the easyer way is with cotton old t-shirt (washed about 15-20 times at least so no fibers ll left in the wax) to build the first layers and a micro fiber(sunglasses colth is perfect for that) for the final buff! smile.gif

Can one have Dainite soles made with removable heel tabs or does one have to have rubber soles exchanged in a whole?

If you can tell what the ugly mark is from, someone might help...
