    I can't believe I missed that webgem. The orange grain just works tremendously well.

    You have to "bull" the toe.. Takes time but is worth it. Now I need to figure out the rest of the shoe. I have no desire to spend 3 more hours shining tonight..

    Warning: Do not use Renovateur on the AE dress belt (at least walnut for sure). I just did and it pulled the color right off leaving a splotchy mess. Ugh.

    On the positive side, it worked great on the burgundy shell belt.

    Good to know and sorry this happened! I was considering using Ren on a light, walnut-ish Polo Ralph Lauren belt I have. the part the buckle rests on has a mark where it's lightened up from wear.

    Ok

    Ok I saw the video so you recommend some kiwi wax... All I have now is some natural saphir wax that I use in conjunction with there cream polish and Reno. Maybe I need to get some colored wax from kiwi
