The story of the Swann Club is now fairly well known -- the regular gathering brought together by Maison Berluti to discuss shoes and polish their prized footwear...using Dom Perignon rather than plain water to enhance the shine. Setting aside the romanticism (or perhaps pretense), is the application of champagne really a good idea in the care of one's shoes. It's been a very long time since I took a chemistry course, but one would think that the acid and sugars in champagne would not be an advisable addition to shoe leather -- even in this small amount. Any thoughts or observations?

Well I don't know about Champagne but I use Vodka on my gloves if they are really dirty. Of course it's leather too. It makes the gloves quite hard but after five years my gloves still exist. Though it has made them very stiff.

Why I did it in the first place? Because my girlfriend dropped something in a trash bin which she should not have and I plunged in to get it.

might seem like a good idea at the time, but...
