Not long since I ripped up a velvet
covered hat, only to find the velvet impossible for further use in the
millinery line. A threw it into the big waste basket that stands near my
husband's shoe cleaning apparatus. He caught up the velvet in a hurry one
day to take a spot off a shoe, and now has it laid away as a treasure in
his shoe kit. He says it is the best polisher he ever had, and uses it on
my fine shoes to his own entire satisfaction.
