This video advice is rubbish. I followed it. It wrecked six pairs of expensive white patent leather go-go boots in one cleaning session. I went back to the manufacturer who say that any nail polish remover, including non-acetone, contains alcohol which instantly wears away the patent leather. They advise using a product called Patent Glow or any patent cleaner. Some other websites advise a product called Waproo, others Pledge furniture cloths and a microfibre cloth. Do not follow the advice in the clip above. If you do, your boots will look like this. Thanks a lot, WonderHowTo!
