Here is a dumb question from a novice - be kind to me! I am off to Sandhurst in a few weeks for my PQO course, and I am starting to work on polishing kit. I have new shoes and crossbelts to prepare. In the past I have had very good results bulling up boots using spit and polish and lots of time. However, I have been told that 'burning down' and beeswaxing is the proper way to do it. How do I go about burning and beeswaxing?
