Hints from Heloise - Patent leather shoe repair

Dear Heloise: My favorite patent leather shoes got some scuffs and nicks from my 5-year-old daughter stomping around in them. I'm not sure how to clean them. - Jaelynn R, Arizona - Dear Jaelynn: Well, that's what little girls do. Those favorite shoes can be fixed with some easy Heloise hints. - Use clear nail polish (or polish that is the same color) to fill in the nicks. For scuffs, grab plain old rubbing alcohol. Take a cotton swab or microfiber cloth, dampen with the rubbing alcohol and wipe away the scuffs. Then buff with a soft cloth. This is a cheap fix. - You can find a variety of money-saving homemade cleaners to help you in my pamphlet Heloise's Homemade Cleaning Solutions. To get one, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cleaners, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001.
