Do you have five minutes? If so, you can shine your shoes! All you need is a cloth or cotton ball and a bottle of nail polish remover. As a child, I would always scuff my shoes. It generally happened during the typical childhood antics. Whether at school, the playground or the backyard, my shoes would take a beating. But my mother would never get mad. She would just reach into her closet and pull out a bottle of nail polish remover. With a cotton ball in one hand and the bottle in the other, my mother had my shoes shining in the blink of an eye. As a child, I thought it was amazing that scuff marks would disappear and my shoes would look brand new. As I got older, I came to understand that the mix of chemicals in the remover were the bane of scuff mark’s existence. The material is not damaged and the scuff marks disappear without a trace. So if you scuff your shoes, don’t fret. Get a bottle of nail polish remover and wipe away the scuff. You’ll be on your way in no time.
