    It has been said that the Saphir Wax is the final application to seal the Saphir Cream. The OP mentioned he used Reno and Wax. Not sure if he used Reno, then cream, then wax as a 3-step process (which is recommended on Saphir sites. However, the Saphir sites suggest the weather product to be added after the was step. That makes 4-steps when considering potential rain days.

    If anyone is happy with Kiwi, then stay with it. But there is ample testimonials from others have enjoyed a much better satin or waxed shine using Saphir products. And if one more item is available for adverse weather, I see not issue with investing $13 to product the work.

    Hmmm . . . maybe it is a love - hate relationship.

    Are you going to work this morning?

    Nice.

    Wednesday "hump day" gives us all a look forward to the weekend.

    (How many web browsers do you have opened?)

    Browsers or tabs?

    Honest question: What does one do for work in Montana?

    Tabs and browsers.

    I try to shut down my computers at least once a week (not just a soft reboot) so as to refresh the resources. But many times I see that I get up to 70 tabs in 10 browsers, which include Google Chrome, Firefox, and a few Internet Explorer. Sometimes I fall victim to screen-sucking where I end up locating new resources on the web for bookmarking or using within my profession.

    Work in Montana? There are more cattle in this state than people (less than a million). Mining, oil, tourism, support services and virtual offices in finance, investments, law, and other service oriented areas.

    My office moved from Newport Beach to Montana and the Northwest back around the time the US Chamber of Commerce reported that 24% of the American workforce is deemed to be able to work anywhere in the country by 1996 with virtual technology. We took our national clients with us, and it has been a great journey. If the office had moved to your area in Manhattan (?), then I would probably be still exploring the Big City and the eastern coast. Home and work is where we make it happen.

    Who would have thought that prisoners would have use of the internet and social sites. Isn't that amazing? Not sure about the Supermax, but I have seen other news reports on prisoners who have private cells, TV, book library, and internet cafes.

    Come to think about it, if they did live and learn on the internet and spiffed up their skills - they may be more employable than some of these your kids graduating from schools.

    Would be good if they did that instead of becoming better criminals

    I don't see any of those processes on the official Saphir site.

    Hired troll to peddle Saphir products?

    Don't remember seeing the guy actually post any of his own experiences but just all copy and paste from Saphir venders and random websites

    Gloves could be a good idea, last nights efforts were successful. I only did the Reno and the cream but the shoes, AE Boca Ratons and Dalton's, both in walnut, achieved a nice healthy glow.

    I tried the neutral wax on one of the toe caps and once again it removed the pigment and didn't shine up much as all, I think I may need pigmented wax instead.

    So I've read through a lot of this thread and the biggest thing I came away with is a headache[​IMG]

    I've got a question about two pairs of Carmina's I just ordered.

    What would be the best shoe care kit for these (shoe trees, creams, polishes, etc.):

    and

    I appreciate any answers I get!
