In which beeswax is useful

If I do say so myself, I dressed up very nicely for the gala departmental event on Friday. The only downside was that, over the course of the day, my black shoes had acquired a very obvious bright white band of salt encrustation. I sat down to clean them off with paper towels and water. Galina suggested a bit of oil, say, safflower. I don't know about you, but on an average school day, I don't carry a bottle of safflower oil around. I do, however, carry around a very small pot of Burt's Bees Hand Salve, which is based on beeswax and olive oil. After cleaning the boots with water, I rubbed some hand salve into my shoes, and they turned out beautifully!
