I love Patent Leather. I can’t say I’ve always adored it. I hated wearing patent leather shoes as a young girl because I was very much a tomboy and shiny shoes, in my neighborhood, only came out at holidays, weddings & funerals. As an adult though, I absolutely can’t be without it.
This past week I scored a really cute black patent clutch while Thrifting. It was full of white marks but otherwise in great condition. I bought it in the hopes that I could find a remedy online to remove the marks and restore the finish.
So I did a search and came up with a bunch of sites with how to’s and people opinions on what to use. I settled for one I found on Ehow.com, which was simple and I only needed things I readily had available at home.
I tried this method first on my cheapie clutch & after on my favorite plaid & patent pumps (There was no way in Heezy I was trying this on my shoes first).
Here’s What You’ll Need
- Nail Polish Remover
- Cotton Balls
- A Clean Cloth (1/2 wet 1/2 dry)
- Oil (preferably a very light one like Mineral or Grapeseed-My Choice)
Next I tried it on a pair of my good shoes…Dunh Dunh Dunh (my scary music in text) Just Kidding…it worked!
How do you feel about Patent Leather for Fall/Winter? Yay or Nay?
