Calamine on leather shoes

Pas de Quatre

Recommended Posts

I've never done this, but I should imagine due to the finish of the leather it may flake?

I guess the surface would have to be porous for it to stick - maybe you could try on an old pair of shoes first?

If the leather is scuffed up enough, it may make it rough enough to absorb the calamine?

I think I remember reading somewhere about a "paint" for ballet shoes - off to investigate!

After experimenting, I have decided to stick with baby wipes/soap and water to clean, and foundation to touch up - which is what I have always done. However, calamine did help on drawstring casing and the elastics. Hfbrew, do you mean the wax cleans the shoe, or protects it from the beginning?
