    I suggest you'd better start with brushing before and after each wearing of your shoes.
    You need to appply conditioner when you feel the leather become dry.
    And apply cream polish if there is a need to rejuvenate the color.
    Otherwise, just give them a good constant brushing and you'll be fine.

    Interesting post. I have Renomat as part of my cleaning "routine" that i use once in a while if i think the shoes needs a clean up. Maybe i'll be better off removing Renomat and simply water+brushing before applying Renovateur.

    Can i ask what you use for Suede shoes?

    I'm not sure why you use water. Renovateur is a water-based cream. I can't help with the suede as I don't own any! Very best wishes, Munky

    I think Munky is right about Renomat.
    I can't tell if it's necessary or not, having never used it, but making its use a part of shoe care routine seems to me like using bleach each time you wash your underwear.
    Common washing powder should usually be enough... :rolleyes:
    A nice Sunday to all, Luigi.

    I simply dip the brush in water to firstly remove any dirt off the shoe, and then let it dry for approximately 10 minutes and then use Renovateur. Was explained that using a brush dipped in water was good to remove any excessive dirt before applying Renovateur (and using Renomat before applying Renovateur).

    I like the idea of using less products, so i think i will try some time without Renomat.
