They say you can judge a man's charecter by looking at his shoes. Shining shoes imply perfection,cleanliness,discipline and the list goes on...and what keeps shoes shining??? Shoe polish of course!! Because shoe polish is not a cleaning agent,the footwear should be dry and clean before application. Shoe polish is applied to the shoe using a rag,cloth or brush.Another technique,known as spit-polishing or bull polishing,involves gently rubbing polish into the leather with a cloth and a drop of water or spit! Ye,you read right...spit!! ou will be surprised to know that this achieves the mirror-like,high gloss finish sometimes known as a spit shine which is especially valued in military organizations. Polishes containing carnauba wax can be used as a protective coating to extend the life and look of a leather shoe.
