So I'm finally at the point where my shell boots (#8's and Cigar) are getting scuffed up where a damp cloth and horsehair brush aren't cutting it anymore. I know that sparse amounts of paste wax a la the Mac method will get out the scuffs but before doing that, should I try switching to a stiffer brush than horsehair, and if so, which brush would you recommend?
Also, I recall people talking a few months back or so about the potential wonders of buffing with a buffer attachment used with a power drill. Can anybody share any positive results from this and what kind of cloth and method they used to cover the buffer attachment with?
I ask about covering the attachment because I've got a buffer attachment for my power drill but the material (a sort of "wooly cloth" for lack of a better phrase) seems much too harsh and looks as if it would actually scuff the shell rather than buff it. I'm curious if covering it with something like an old stocking (didn't gaga use pantyhose for buffing his extensive Japanese collection?) or a flannel cloth might prevent this.
Sorry if these have already been addressed but searching the thread hasn't yielded much and plus I'd like to hear some testimonies for those who did use a buffer attachment.
