Here are some weird and wonderful ways to clean up your boots when you don't have your polish to hand...

1. Use vegetable or olive oil. Use a clean, damp cloth to clean off any dust from the shoe and then buff with a small drop of oil to bring it to a shine!

2. Save a banana peel. You heard us right! Rub the inside of the skin over the boot surface, wipe off then buff to a sheen.

3. Use vaseline - put a small dab on to the leather and rub it in well!

P.S. we'd still recommend the traditional boot polishing methods for inspection!
