I used a worn out T shirt twisted around my finger and SPIT. KIWI black never let me down. It's not necessarily how you do it, it's how long you do it, spit polish that is.

Hell it only takes me 30 or 20 min. to get my shoes polished.

No where near as shiny as they would be if you would finish the job.

Hey... everyone's got their own way Personally I didn't have a problem with spending $10 on polish and a cloth when it's lasted 2 years

In the sunlight, hold a dime two feet away from the toe cap of your boot. Can you see the dime's reflection in the shine? If so, that's a good shine. If you can see the date on the dime, that's a spit shine.

I want to know how the gaurds of the tomb of the unknown shine their shoes. I was there two days ago and those are not chloraframs(sp?). They have to do an 8 hour shine on their shoes.

Because you was in DC. Washington DC is a cool place.
