Shine Your Dad’s Shoes for Father’s Day!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the dad’s out there!!

Mom’s get breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day, but what about dad’s on Father’s Day… do they really need another tie? Instead of going out and buying something new, why not fix up something he uses all the time.

If you’re looking for something nice to do for your father on Father’s Day, how about shining his shoes? It’s a very inexpensive way to show your father just how much you love him, and can be done at any age. Not only will Kelapo Coconut Oil give some shine to dad’s shoes, but it will also give off the great coconut scent.

I’ve used coconut oil as a shoe shine on my leather high heels before. And every time I do it, it makes my shoes look brand new! Along with looking new, I love the amazing coconut smell too.

 Don’t worry about the coconut oil damaging the leather shoes. Because there are fatty acids and saturated fats in coconut oil, it actually makes it a great shoe shine. Other oils that don’t have saturated fats are more likely to go rancid on top of the leather shoes and are less stable.

All you need is Kelapo Coconut Oil, a soft cloth, and your dad’s leather shoes!

  • Take a pair of your father’s leather shoes (this shoe shine will only work on leather)
  • Then place some Kelapo Coconut Oil onto a soft cloth
  • Rub the cloth onto the shoes in a fast circular motion
  • Next, buff the shoes with a dry soft cloth
  • Finally, surprise your dad with his shiny (and great smelling) shoes!

Why not do the whole family's shoes while you're at it?!

    Hi, just came across this article, maybe you can help me 🙂
    Yesterday I bought a big can of coconut oil. Unfortunately the container was too weak, so when I lifted it, it broke and I spilled all the oil on the floor – and on my leather sandals 🙁 What should I do now? Coconut oil is good for shoes in small quantity, but does it have the same effect in such big quantity too? It has softened and darkened them a bit. Their smell hasn’t changed. Now would the best solution be to buy some more coconut oil and cover the whole of both shoes? Or what do you suggest? I don’t want to throw the sandals away as they were my favorites.
    Thank you 🙂

      Sibyl – we’re sorry to hear about the sandals and all that delicious coconut oil! We suggest trying to run the excess oil off the shoes, then shine like the article suggests. That may help give a more unified shine. The color change may just be from the amount of oil that was unexpectedly dropped on them – give your shoes some time to dry. Hope that helps!

    I just conditioned 2 pairs of boots with coconut oil. It left a white residue. Will that go away when they warm up? It is about 60 degrees and I know coconut oil liquifies at 76 degrees. Or do you have any suggestions on how to remove the coconut oil without ruining the boots.

      Most likely, what you’re seeing is the solid coconut oil on your boots. Try sticking them in front of a heater or a blow dryer for just a minute or so to liquefy the coconut oil again, and you should be able to rub the rest of it in.
