OK, Gentlemen, I have a question (I did post this in another group, sorry if repeat):  When polishing y'all's dress shoes, have ANY of y'all ever seen a difference between before and after you buff with a soft cloth?  I mean, after you use the brush to remove the polish, all the instructional vids/directions all say to buff with a cloth after the polish is removed.

Also, most of the instructional info says, for an uuber shine, sprinkle with water/add spit/breath on them (as AoM recommends). Have any of y'all seen an improvement of shine via the addition of moisture?

We heard the same thing about heating shoe polish in the Air Force Cadets. From memory it never went well.

I don't know Jon I really enjoy shinning my boots and shoes? It's becoming a lost art in many places. I cringe a little bit everytime I see someone with nice footwear that are neglected and scratched up.

I've been told that using a hair dryer to melt the wax onto your shoes makes a brighter shine.any truth to this?

Prior to shining your shoes, remove the laces. After shining your shoes, use an extra set of thick laces and run them through the eyelets to remove any polish in the eyelets before threading the original laces of the shoes.

It does, but I do it every now and then and prior to shining my shoes.

Thank you very much, I have been told Saddle Soap can take off the polish though, is this true?
