For patent leather: To get your shiniest accessories glistening again, just wipe them with a bit of glass cleaner. To remove scuffs, gently scrub with a Q-tip and petroleum jelly.
For a too-big belt: When even the smallest notch is loose, pull your belt through its buckle to the desired tightness. Then loop it under and back over to create a secure knot.
For slippery soles: Prep shoes for icy surfaces by roughing up leather soles with sandpaper. Now you have enough grip to stay afoot.
