How to Mirror Shine Shoes with a Hairdryer
In this tutorial, Kirby Allison teaches you a way to Mirror Shine Dress Shoes using a common household hair dryer. The purpose of heating the waxes is to open the pores and soften the waxes so that they are accepted into the leather pores.
Step 1: Clean using Saphir Reno’Mat
Step 2: Apply Mirror Gloss Using Shoe Cleaning Dauber
Apply Saphir Mirror Gloss onto your dauber then rub it onto the tip of your shoe. The trick is to apply a generous amount for the hairdryer to melt down onto a shine. If you apply too much the hairdryer will buff it off for you.
Step 3: Melt the Wax Using a Hair Dryer
Use medium heat to melt the wax into the pores of the shoes. So as to not damage the leather permanently use medium heat and do not use a lighter or any kind of open flame on the shoe.
Step 4: Buff Using Saphir Mirror Gloss and Saphir Pate De Luxe Wax Shoe Polish
Take your high-shine chamois and buff off any excess waxes that have been left on the tip of your shoe. After that, run the hairdryer over the shoe one more time. This shine requires more buffing time than a regular shine. Depending on the shine that you want, you can continue to add the wax polish and putting the heat over the shoe.
