Clean Patent Leather Boots

If you own a pair of patent leather boots, you've probably scuffed them a couple of times. Here is an easy way to remove scuffs.


  1. Put on your boots.
  2. Fill up your sink with water.
  3. Dip your boots into the sink.
  4. Let your boots soak for about 5 minutes. Some water may seep into the boots, but do not worry. Rub the scuff. It should slide right off.
  5. Dry your boots and enjoy!


  • Although you can wear the shoes right after you do this, you may want to let any excess water evaporate from your boots. Otherwise, they may feel a bit squishy on the inside, and might get your socks wet.
