Shoes and Bags: How to Fix Scuffs on Leather

By Bebefuzz

I recently came across a product that is miraculous for fixing minor to moderate scuffs on most leathers, and I just have to share it with all of you. Read on for the tutorial and the before and after pictures.

Of all of the shoe polishes I've ever tried, Meltonian Shoe Cream Polish is the best. It not only polishes, but also evens out scuffs and seems to revitalize leather. This polish can be applied to shoes and bags. It can be used on most solid-colored leathers. It should not be used on exotic leathers (python, croc, ostrich skin, etc), suede, or leathers that are not solid-colored.

This polish has even been used on one of my black lambskin Chanel bags, and it came out beautifully! None of my personal bags currently have any scuffs, so two pairs of shoes were used in this demonstration.

All I had to do was dip a little product onto a soft lint-free rag and buff this lightly but thoroughly into the leather surface in circular motions.

After the leather polish has completely dried, take a clean soft lint-free rag and buff it again. Do not apply product this time. This step is to set the polish, so that it does not rub color later.

My favorite ankle boots look so much newer now! They don't look scuffed at all!

Meltonian Shoe Cream Polish comes in a wide array of colors. Be sure to pick the one closest to the color of the leather that you are treating.
