Shining Boots
and Shoes
Brush off any dirt or dust on the boot, from heel to toe
with the hard-bristled brush.
Wrap the duster cloth around your index finger, making
sure there are no wrinkles. Apply a medium layer of
polish to the boot using the duster and your finger.
Rubbing in until a faint shine starts to show.
Once the faint shine comes through and the polish
has been worked into the boot, take your index
finger and the cloth and dip it lightly into the water,
and start rubbing it into the boot over the polish in
small circles about an inch wide. Keep doing this
until a greater shine comes through and the swirls
start to disappear.
Leave it to dry for a few minutes, and then once
dry, take your index finger again and apply a thin
layer of polish to the boot, start rubbing it in until
an even better shine comes through, then apply
the water to it using the method in Step 3. Leave to
dry again.
Take the damp index finger and apply a tiny dot of
polish to the boot and work in till it shines. Make sure
that the cloth is very damp but not dripping.
Repeat Step 5 until you get the desired level of shine.
Take the duster (fold it into a
smallish rectangle) or soft
shoe brush and buff the
boot all over until it starts to
shine as much as you want
it to be.
