TIPS FOR REMOVING SHOE POLISH STAINS: Because shoe polishes vary in their ingredients it may be necessary to try more than one method in attempting to remove stains caused by them.

Try first the method described under Cosmetics. If the stain is not removed, try next sponging it with alcohol*. (Test for colorfastness. Dilute the alcohol with two parts of water.)

For stains not removed by alcohol, try sponging with cleaning fluid or turpentine*. If turpentine is used, sponge afterward with a warm detergent solution or alcohol to remove the turpentine.

If traces of stain still remain after these treatments, use a chlorine bleach, or hydrogen peroxide.
