Natural Shoe Polish

We’ve been on the lookout for natural and non-toxic products to clean and re-hydrate leather shoes, but it’s a hard task indeed. We’ve discovered we’re going to need to be inventive and find raw ingredients to make our own. So far we’ve found the following information:-

1) Olive Oil & Lemon Juice

Combine 1 part lemon juice & 2 parts olive oil. With a clean cloth, rub in to your shoes, allow to soak for several minutes, then buff off with a clean cloth.

2) Coconut Oil

Niugini Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

This one’s even easier and we find it produces a better result. There’s no mixing or measuring required. Simply rub the coconut oil in to your shoes with a clean cloth. Leave for several minutes and then buff off with a clean, dry cloth.

For shoes that are super-grubby, wipe them down with a damp microfibre cloth first, then rehydrate the leather with the coconut oil.

We’re still on the lookout for natural products to put the colour back in to scuffed shoes.
