Good Answer: Use Vaseline to Keep Your Patents Shiny

March 10, 2008 by SheFindsJennifer

Our loyal readers are probably familiar with our 'Good Question' posts where we pick out reader questions from the boards and help resolve them. But we have noticed that you readers also have great answers and solutions of your own. Here is an example of what we're talking about:

Question: How do I keep my patent leather items looking their best? 

Answer: If you have 7 minutes, a soft cloth and a dollop of petroleum jelly, you can make your patent leather handbag or shoes shiny in no time:

1. Take a soft cloth and rub a good amount of p-jelly onto you accessories. (Rub it until there are no streaks.)

2. Let it dry for 5 minutes.

3. Use another part of the soft cloth and polish your handbag or shoes.

It will not make your bag/shoes sticky but it will make them shiny! Scuffed up shoes or purses are not a good look. I have been a patent leather lover for years and my Nana (grandmother) taught me this tip. It's easy, it's fast, it's inexpensive and most of all you will look put together. 

Good tip reader! Here are some great patent leather finds for you to practice on:
