As a follow-up to our grand opus on shoe maintenance, a few of you have written in suggesting a more unorthodox solution: rubbing down your scuffed shoes with acetone.
First, we should tell you that this is a bad idea. It’s unnecessary for most scuffs, the acetone will numb your fingers for months and there’s a distinct chance you’ll accidentally set yourself on fire.
If you know what’s good for you, you’ll put down the chemicals, bring your shoes to a professional and never speak of this again.
But, just in case you’re unconvinced, we’re going to tell you how to do it.
