Does anybody here wear rubber gloves when polishing their shoes? I generally wrap a t shirt around by thumb, however the polish always bleeds through. My friend witnessed this and freaked out claiming some substances in shoe polish can harm you and blah, blah, blah. I say he is being a pussy and unless you are eating a block of wax a day there is nothing to worry about. I have even licked the spot on the t shirt where the wax builds up to get a good spit shine on the toes of my shoes. Am I taking the precautions too lightly, or are some people just wimps?
