Fast, no mess shoe shining sponge

The Kiwi Express Leather Shine Sponge has been around for a few years, but since I used mine today, I decided to blog about it. I think it's one of the most fabulous inventions in my lifetime. To polish shoes, you don't need messy polish, or gloves, or rags. All you need is this little sponge. You use it simply by rubbing it on your shoe. And when you're done, you just put the cover back on. Easy, fast, clean. I use mine once every few months and it's always worked great.

Update from the comments: If you're the type to do things "the right way," here's some very detailed instructions on polishing shoes, including the option of lighting the polish on fire (halfway down the page).

My father went to a military school for his freshmen year year of college ("The biggest mistake I ever made in my life," says he.) One of the only things he claims to have learned there was amazing shoe polishing. The technique includes setting the polish on fire to melt it and rubbing it down quickly with a wet cloth.

These are actually bad for real shoe leather. They can dry it out and lead to cracks.

If you do a proper job polishing every now and then, which includes applying a bunch of layers of polish, then you can just do a 30-second buff to get rid of scuffs and bring the shine back.
