How to Shine Shoes

Tired of having your shoes look worn-out a few hours after you’ve bought them? Want to keep your shoes looking as good as new? Fear not-- with a few handy supplies, and by following these steps, you can learn the easy way to shine them like a pro.

Step 1 Clean dust and dirt from the surface of your shoes or boots with a shoeshine brush or damp cloth.

Step 2 Select a can of wax or creme shoe polish that matches the leather you want to polish.

Step 3 Use a shoe polish brush to apply a conservative amount of polish to the surface of the leather. Brush in circular motions until the leather has a dull coating. Get into tight spots using an old toothbrush.

Step 4 Wait 15 minutes while the polish dries.

Step 5 Brush shoes or boots with a shoeshine brush.

Step 6 Buff to a gleaming shine with a clean cotton cloth, such as an old sweat sock or T-shirt.
