Caring For Leather Shoes

Shine your patent leather shoes by rubbing them with a small amount of petroleum jelly. Leather shoes or purses can be shined quickly with a light application of furniture polish.

To preserve leather shoes, first clean thoroughly with saddle soap, then rub down with mink oil, working the oil well into seams. Both are available at better shoe stores. The shoes will be waterproof and remain supple for a long time.
