I don't understand, does renovateur strip/clean or condition?
I agree with this. Please stop using renomat on these shoes! Do as above and apply some cordovan cream! Very best wishes, Munky.
Renomat is a stripper and renovateur is a conditioner. I have never used Renomat as I have never found a need for something as potential harsh on any of my shoes. I use Renovateur occasionally but not particularly regularly. Generally, don't use too much of anything and brush, brush, brush.
I had bottle of Renomat in a box that I keep my shoe maintenance stuff in and didn’t close the lid tight enough. Started smelling something, opened the box and it had leaked and melted all the bristles on my suede brush. Strong stuff.
I found something that Luigi posted, a few weeks ago, very useful. I have started to put on cream polish with my finger. It is really good at allowing you to gauge how much product you are putting on your shoes. Thanks Luigi. Best wishes, Munky.
Glad you found the trick useful Munky.
By using a cloth I was always using far too much cream, this resulting in gunked shoes - and you all have seen how easily I overdo the subsequent cleaning.
I would only suggest to rub with a slow motion - or not too fast anyway - or you risk to get a little blister on your finger. Don't ask me how I know that!
After that ... as you say, brush, brush, brush is the true keyword.
Have a nice week end! Luigi.
Thanks @benhour! Since it's coming from a shine expert like you I'll take it as a double compliment.
Anyway I know that, as we say in Italy, I still have to eat a lot of dishes of soup ...
Practice, practice ...
Hello! I need some help with a pair of Church's I picked up. Any suggestions for repairing/covering this scratch?
