If you have pets, you know about unsightly furniture scratches.

There’s an easy way to repair most minor furniture scratches – shoe polish!  It is the perfect camouflage.  It is opaque.  It comes in a variety of colors and it is removable.  If you don’t  like  the way it looks, wipe it away with mineral spirits.

To fill a scratch, look for a shoe polish paste that matches the furniture ‘s finish. If you cant  find a close match, then mix 2 or more polishes together on a paper plate with a cuticle stick.

When you have achieved the desired color , apply the polish to the scratch using a cotton swab.

Let the polish dry  10 to 15 minutes and then gently buff with a soft cloth.
