My daughter found an old pair of soft leather ballet flats while shopping in my closet the other day.  This was the pair my sister sent me two years ago when she went Black Friday shopping.

I have no problem with her wearing them, but they are looking a bit dull and worn.  So I thought of mom’s old trick and got two eggs from the fridge.  She uses egg whites to renew the shine of old shoes and sometimes to polish the leaves of her indoor plants.

Ok going back to my story, I separated the whites from the yolk (one egg per shoe) then rubbed the unbeaten whites onto the leather with a clean cloth.  I let them dry before buffing.  Within minutes, the shoes are glossy once again.
