I ended up taking that advice, thank benhour


Also, thank you everyone.  After finding this site 2 weeks ago, I've learned much about the craft of shoe shine and even patina, and it all started after finding a jar of Meltonian polish in the closet.  Maybe not directly, but many of you have posted valuable information in the past that has created a database of knowledge for the inquiring mind.  I finished my first pair today, and am beyond pleased as a first run, and learned it all right here. So thanks again and I owe you all a beer.  Haha, cheers.

If I used Saphir shoe cream that is darker than my shoes for years, is there any way to revert to back to the original colour? Without using acetone, that is.

I believe Saphir Renomat and Renovateur could get you moving int he right direction.

I heard that car leather conditioners work well on shoes. Is there any difference between those for cars and those for shoes? What ingredients should I look for, besides avoiding silicon?

 

 

On a side note, I have this Collonil Leather Gel. Anyone used this before? Does it contain silicon?
