I met one of my military friends in a get-together.
laughed, and took photographs. Interestingly, I noticed his shoes, sparkling like the supernova.
I asked her the reason, and he whispered, “Hush, I use light to shine my shoes.”

You can follow these steps-
- Before you start shoe shining, put a newspaper over the working area and keep all your shining accessories like a shoe, lighter, shoe-polish, shoe cleaning brush on it.
- At first, inspect your shoe closely and remove all the debris using a shoe brush. Take off the shoelaces and again wipe the shoe with a rag or cleaning cloth dampened in water.
- Now, it’s time to let your lighter show its magic. Firstly, open the shoe shiner. Then ignite the shoe polish through flames of the lighter covering the surface area of the shoe-polisher.
- If you are satisfied that your lighter has ignited the shoe shiner properly, extinguish the fire and remove the lighter. Then clean the surface with a cleaning cloth dampened in water.
- Now start shining your shoe with the melted shoe shiner. Apply it on a small part of the shoe in a circular motion.
- Now, sprinkle some water on the previously polished water and reapply the melted shoe shiner on the same spot to create another shining layer.
