Rated 5 out of 5 by Breck from good brush I have 5 or 6 of these I don't think I have ever had to throw one away. I alway clean them just before I use them. The only reason I have all of them is I always use the same brusch for each different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John from Great products I only buy Allen Edmonds dress shoes and only use their shoe care products. They are the best in the industry. It may cost a little more, but quality usually does!

are these good to apply the premium leather conditioner to my calfskin dress shoes?
We recommend applying the Premium Leather Conditioner to a soft cotton cloth, rub the conditioner into the cloth, and then rub the cloth onto the leather. We advice against applying it with brushes because applying a large amount directly into the shoe may cause the leather to saturate. The horsehair daubers are typically used to get polish into or out of the crevices of the shoe, such as the perforations or the corners. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

what is this used for?
Is this necessary? Can the polish be applied with a cloth? Is there a benefit to the dauber?
I think the dauber helps push it into the crevices where a cloth will not. I had this same debate and think the dauber helps get the nooks, and the cloth will miss unless you apply it thick. Smooth surfaces and no hard to get creases or damage like boots it will most likely be fine to use a cloth.

How do you care for the brushes and Dauber?
Do you just wipe clean or wash with water?
Water? Let's not get too fastidious. The daubers need to stay moist and protected from dust, not sterile. Get one for each color of polish you use, then wrap the heads in Saran Wrap or a zippy snack bag when you store them. I recommend keeping all Shoe Care items in an old AE shoe box (sturdiest), or get a shoe shine box with foot rest, like the old days. You should have two brushes (faster) and store them mated, bristle to bristle. Go light enough on polish to leave it all on the shoes, where it does the most good. Rub the rest of the polish off on a belt, wallet or briefcase then buff those out, too. Or, you can use excess polish on the wife's shoes. She'll notice.
