Northwest Pearls: Patent Leather Shoe Scuffs

I have a nice pair of nude/beige patent leather shoes that have recently gotten really scuffed. So I looked around online to figure out how I can remove the scuffs and below is what I found. But be careful, spot-test if you can!

Try all of the below, except number one, with a soft cloth, cotton swab, or paper towel and try rubbing to see if the scuff marks go away.

  1. A microfiber cloth or gum eraser
  2. A water dampened paper towel or cotton swab
  3. Windex
  4. Petroleum jelly
  5. Isopropyl alcohol
  6. Nail polish remover

What have you found has the most luck getting rid of scuff marks?
