Shoe polish is a good way to bring new life to an old pair of loafers, but it can also mean bad news if it's accidentally smeared on a wood table, floor, or countertop. Unfortunately, shoe polish can mean a stubborn stain when combined with wood. However, all is not lost, as it's simple to remove the polish.
Dab the stain with a paper towel to remove any excess. Squeeze dish detergent onto a toothbrush and scrub the stain, using a small circular motion.
Pour hydrogen peroxide onto the stain and the soap and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Dab the stain again with a paper towel to soak up excess liquid.
Moisten the stain eraser sponge and scrub the stain vigorously until you no longer see traces of the polish. Apply dusting spray and swipe the surface with a soft rag.
