To Dark or wrong polish on shoes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I polished my lovely Tan shoes with Tan polish. Sadly its obvious that the polish was far to dark. I want to remove the polish if possible and some how restore the color.

 

Is there anyway to this?

 

TIA

Hi,

 

I'm going to move this to Menswear Advice, where this might get a few more eyes who are focused on giving this type of advice.  

 

This should do the trick https://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-reno-mat-cleaner.html

Dont worry about renomat. There are two simple and cheap ways to remove excess wax/polish, and both involves knowledge of basic chemistry. First cheapo way is just to use a rag soaked in vodka. Second cheapo way is to use neutral wax polish, as neutral wax contains a higher proportion of solvents versus wax and pigments. Neither product will damage leather or strip dyes. Voila!

Saddle soap to remove the polish, then neutral shoe cream
