Posted by Harriet on 21 March, 2006 at 1:57 PM I've bought navy shoe polish from Morrison's.
You can use several items to fill in the color over the scratches: shoe polish that matches the color of the wood, the meat of a walnut or pecan, colored markers or even commercially prepared boiled linseed oil.
As such, basic upkeep includes waxing and buffing with clear shoe polish, but if your hat is showing signs of wear or needs a small touch up, a hint of dark shoe polish will do the trick.
Leather: Rinse them and scrub them on the outside with a soft brush, then use white shoe polish to fix the scuffmarks.
To remove more difficult stains, such as tar, shoe polish or markers, Pergo recommends using acetone or nail polish remover.
