a little tip

Here's a tip for the day, seeing as we've got a ton of snow -- and salt -- on the roads and sidewalks. Rather than spend a fortune on expensive sprays for your leather boots, try this: rub salt stains with a cloth dipped in vinegar (so what if you smell like a salad for a few minutes, it really does work). Then polish with shoe cream and buff as usual. Last step is to coat the boots, especially where the sole is attached, with Dubbin. It's a grease that they use in the far north, and it really protects leather.
