How To Use Pure Polish Cream Polish

How to Use Cream Polish (Color & Neutral)


Pure Polish Cream Polish

(Short Instructions)

Apply with fingertip or clean cotton cloth in 1 inch circles. Wait 10 minutes. Horsehair brush each shoe thoroughly for a deep, rich shine.

(Long Instructions)

To get the greatest benefit from this polish, and to get the best shine, use it in the following manner:

Use a soft cotton cloth (an old t-shirt will do) and rub it on the surface of the polish in the tin. If the polish is soft rub gently, if the polish is firm rub with a little more pressure. You want to add just a little polish to the cloth (you can always add more if you like).

Rub the polish onto the shoe in about 1 inch circles. You should have enough polish on the cloth to cover each section (or one quarter) of the shoe at a time. Repeat this process until polish has been applied to cover both shoes.

Wait 10 minutes and Boar’s hair (shorter stiffer bristles) or Horsehair brush each shoe thoroughly. This process helps the cream polish penetrate and get absorbed into the leather. However, this will not produce a great shine yet, so don’t be disappointed.

Wait another 10 minutes. Using a clean cotton cloth, do a single light wipe-down across each shoe, to remove any excess cream polish that hasn’t penetrated the leather pores. Follow-up with a thorough Horsehair brushing of each shoe again. This should bring out a deep, rich, glow shine.

With light colored shoes (Light Brown polish) the shoes may darken slightly due to the density of the conditioner (coconut oil) in the polish.
