I agree with basically everything this man, a butler, says about polishing shoes.
Some tips to remember:
- Don’t forget to take the laces out and polish the tongue.
- Alternate shoe wax with shoe polish cream.
- Put the shoe cream or wax on one shoe with a toothbrush, then let it sit while you put the cream or wax on the other shoe. Do not put the cream on and brush right away. The polish needs some time to soak in.
- Then brush. My suggestion from experience is to dip the shoe brush in a tiny bit of water on the tips of the brush, so that the shoe will be extra shiny, if that is how you want it.
More in my next post about what kind of shoe polish cream vs. shoe wax to use.
