    Lightbulb No shoe polish .. had to improvise

    Went out last night to my mates 50 th party .... just a casual affair so i wore long shorts , t-shirt and trainers .
    I came to put my black trainers on but they were ever so dirty and i couldn't find any shoe polish ........ so i raided the car care kit !!!! I found some meguiars natural shine .... and WOW what a result

    I think later im gonna do the 3 stage and maybe #21 them too

    wonder what detailing world would think of that ????

    I've used furniture polish on my shoes before.
    Picture it, rushing around, head for kitchen cupboard next to washing machine where furniture polish is kept, spray on liberally & wipe off then shoes on & rushed out the door. Next morning when up & dressed I walk into kitchen to sink above earlier mentioned kitchen cupboard wearing socks, slip on the polished tiles on the floor, big toe goes under washing machine, the nail didn't.
    Lesson learnt, don't offer to make cups of tea in the morning!!!
