had to go into work early this am to cover a sick co worker. hit the pasture and fed the animals, hopped in my chariot and went to work. Once I got most of the fires put out at work I looked down and noticed i was wearing my regular farm boots.. not a 'nicer' pair.

What normall happens, is I get a pair of boots, wear em a couple 3 years, then when they are a bit sloppy or worn, relegate them to chore work and get a new pair. this black pair of ariet i'm wearing are plenty serviceable.. just getting a lil sloppy and whatnot.

well.. hmm.. what to do at a nice concert venue with lots of expensive guests?

grab some wet naps and first, clean all the dust off the boots and get them squeaky clean.. then.. hmm.. step over to the lounge and grab a handfull of napkins, and a bottle of salad dressing oil.. :) a couple shots of salad oil onto the napkin, and a few wipes later and the boots look too good to use as chore boots now.. :)

haha, have done the same thing with some armor-all on my black ones when cleaning, and cooking oil from spills at work on my Schmidt's.. .works amazingly well to "touch up." It's amazing what one can come up with in a pinch!

I have had shirts with a little bit of crud on them. Go into a washroom and with a damp hand towel I can get rid of most of the peculiarities. Helps when you have to drop off paperwork with a receiver.
