On Thursday I wore a dress that I suspect is vintage.
The metal zipper told me so (or so I say).
The dress came with a white patent belt marked 14 Del Rio Belt.
It was filthy dirty.
I cleaned it with a damp cloth and dried it,
it was still yellow looking.
Since it is patent I stopped to think:
"Ok, I know how to clean patent.
I have been cleaning patent and patent leather
shoes, belts, head bands, bags this way for years"
And let me add that I have not ruined
any of them !
How do you do it ?
Answer is : nail polish remover and cotton.
This will remove scuffs from shoes and bags,
this will maintain the gloss that patent has.
Here is a before and after picture of the belt....
Can you see the difference ?
How do you clean patent and patent leather items ?
Have you tried this before ?
