Spit or not?

Does anyone shine their shoes, these days?

And, is it a poor reflection if one doesn't?

I do, however I have been described as being all Spit and no Polish !

Yes I do! especially my Daughters School shoes but I don't spit on them :-( that's disgusting.

i don't spit but i do polish my shoes and boots on a regular basis

When I was wearing khaki the time honoured way of 'bulling' your boots necessitated frequent spits upon the polish to achieve the mirror-like surface which was required.

Needless to say - I still polish but no longer do I spit.

Yes of course I was married to an Airman for a number of years but he did all the spitting! wasnt it called Bulling your boots? waxing or sommit?

used to spit and polish my boots years ago were like mirrors on the toecaps.

my shoes are polished most days with cloth and brush to keep them waterproof and smart.

scruffy shoes sign of scruffy kept person in my book.

I dont wear shoes very often but do still polish them before wearing them as it softens the leather,waterproofs them a little and look a dam sight better than scuffed/scratched shoes.

If spitting worked, footballers' shoes would look absolutely immaculate at all times.
