interesting. didn't know that.
Really Renomat? I can see that with Renovateur, but not Renomat.
Is there a way to apply neutral wax on top of a shoe that has a layer of creme polish on top of it without rubbing off all the creme?
I'm using saphir medium brown creme and the neutral wax, and I can't stop the creme from rubbing off the shoe onto the cloth, taking all the color off the shoe.
Am I pressing too hard when applying the neutral wax? Do I just need to buy medium brown wax and use that to try to get my high shine back?
Yes. Wait until the cream polish is dry.
Or, let the neutral wax dry up so the solvent content will go down, leaving more wax. Dry waxes are easier to spit shine.
A bit off topic but need to condition my e60 seats - lexol is the standard right?
I gave it a whole weekend of drying before trying the neutral, I would think it would be fully dry.
I'll have to buy some cheaper neutral to let dry out, I don't think I want to do that with my MDO.
Is there a better short term solution, like another coat of creme or something? I've also seen individuals post about doing a coat of renovateur after the creme but before the wax, would that help?
It IS off-topic, but I have always used Leatherique for my BMW interiors (e30, e39, e46), although I'm sure Lexol would work just fine.
It's a bit off topic, but I've been using lexol for lotion, and is this normal?
How were there not more comments on this comment? This was hysterical.
Whenever I use a specific Saphir Cream Color Number, I follow up with the same Saphir color match in a wax. This helps avoid the use of a neutral wax.

Everyone pretending to be too mature.
I normally use waterbased (Boston shoe cream for cheaper stuff) shoe cream for my shoes, neutral for daily maintenance and with pigment if there are any scratches or creases that need to be less visible. If I take a slightly damp cloth and rub it against the leather, it will get stained from the pigmented shoe cream even days after polishing it and removing excess pigment.
My question is: I would like to apply leather cream (shoe cream) to my briefcase and other leatherproducts such as gloves. I suspect that using a pigmented shoe cream will stain clothes and other material when wearing the briefcase etc, especially if it would rain. What product do you recommend as an alternative? Would a shoe cream that is not purely waterbased (such as Saphir Creme Surfine, which contains waxes and oils) be better?
