Dear Budget Fashionista,
How does one remove scuff marks from patent leather shoes? I have a cream pair that has brown marks and I have a red pair that has black marks. Do I need to go to a shoe shop??
How to Get Scuff Marks Off Shoes
Don’t spend money at a shoe shop until you’ve tried this tip. Head to your local drugstore and purchase the cheapest bottle of non acetone nail polish remover you can find. Dip a Q-tip in the remover and apply it to your scuff, gently rubbing the mark off.
You could also try hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol, but you need to be careful as to not remove and/or discolor the dye on your shoes.
Note: Also works with regular leather shoes
