Make Your Own High-Grade Leather and Shoe Polish
Beeswax is at the center of this recipe, but there's a lot more to it than that. It actually calls for beeswax (which is easily available from Amazon), which is a natural waterproofing and conditioning agent, but also for coconut butter, sweet almond oil, and castor oil. Beyond that, you can make all of this at home on the stove with some measuring spoons, a pyrex measuring cup, and some bamboo skewers. When you're finished, cleanup is a snap, and you can pour your new polish into containers for storage and use them whenever you want.
Antagonizer notes that while this polish and conditioner were designed for leather shoes, straps, belts, and buckles, he's also used it in pleather, wooden surfaces (much like this technique we mentioned before), and even canvas. You won't want to use it on suede though, and if you're worried at all, try it on a little bit of a hidden part of the material to make sure it works.
It's a lot of ingredients, and you're certainly not going to save any money on this DIY version over just buying polish in the store, but what you will get is a much higher quality product that you can use on more things all over your home, and will last much longer on whatever you apply it to.
