Remove scratches in shoes
Slight scratches in shoes made of smooth leather can happen quickly. You may have got caught on a step or someone has simply stepped on your shoe. With a little skill, light scratches can be easily removed.
Light scratches are always in the finish of the leather. If the scratches are deeper and have penetrated the leather, only special repair creams can help, such as Famaco's Famacolor repair cream.
Step 1: Clean scratched area
Step 2: Shoe cream
Step 3: Fill the scratch with shoe wax
While shoe wax is usually used very sparingly, now apply a little more the Burgol Shoe Poloshing Wax to the scratch. Allow the shoe wax to dry for 15 minutes and afterwords smooth the area with a Burgol Premium Polishing Cloth.
Finally, polish the shoes to a shine with a Burgol Horsehair Brush.
If the quantity of shoe wax was not sufficient, repeat step 3.
Light scratches can be removed very easily in this way. Only for deeper scratches or abrasions do we recommend the special Famacolor Repair Cream.
