You can strip shoe polish by first melting the polish and then cleaning the leather with a rough piece of cloth. Chemically break down the polish by dabbing the shoe with rubbing alcohol and then remove it by scrubbing the leather, either with a steel wool or with SOS pads. One of the most popular and safest methods is to apply a layer of saddle soap on the shoe and then wipe clean the shoe thoroughly with a piece of damp cloth. Shoe polish can do wonders for dull and dingy shoes, but a shoe polish stain on your clothes can be very tricky to remove. Blot at stain with white paper towels, using a lifting motion (never rub as this may spread the stain and make it worse), until no more polish comes up on the paper towel.


Using the plastic knife, gently scrape away any excess shoe polish, being careful not to rub it into the fiber or snag the fabric with the edge of the knife. If the above method of stain removal fails to remove the stain entirely, check with the manufacturer of the particular shoe polish you are using for additional advice on stain removal.
NEVER attempt any of these cleaning methods on fabric that is designated as dry clean only; any such fabric should be taken to a professional dry cleaner. But whatever the reason is, stripping shoe polish is a fairly easy task and can be accomplished in a number of different ways. However, you may have to apply saddle soap more than once to get rid of all the polish which is why this method may take longer than expected.


In order to make sure that all the polish is properly melted, you should sponge the shoe at least a couple of time.
