    To start off, you must first clean off all the dust particles and dirt which is on the surface of your shoes or boots. At times when the dirt is a lot, you must clean it with water but in that case you will have to wait long to polish you shoes. Why? Because the shoe remains wet and during that time you cannot polish it. It is advised that you soak a piece of cloth in water and then rub it over the shoe’s surface and clean it.
