Do you guys use bare hands/fingers for applying renovateur? I used to then read some stuff here and got scared. So then I tried with latex (doctor) gloves but it's not as easy, so then tried with a cloth which works but still not as easy.
I'm now scared of chemicals in all of the Saphir and Collonil 1909 products I own after the on-going "scientific" debates here. I think from now I'm going to polish shoes while wearing a mask and gloves at all times.
I swipe a bag of my wife's makeup pads - they are kind of like a soft, dense foam - works great for applying creams and paste wax as well as Renovateur and Cordovan Cream.
Yup. Make-up pads are much better.
Despite its popularity by the Armoury and Leather Soul, I find cotton rounds have way too much lint.
