Socks for shining shoes

I use a dauber brush to apply polish to shoes, but I also like using old socks for polish applying and shining. My recent trouble is that my socks are not wearing out like they used to!!! :confused:

I don't know whether the socks have gotten better or I'm buying better socks. Anyway to solve the problem I just went to Marshall''s and got a package of 6 very inexpensive white anklet socks.

I use pieces of an old T-short to apply polish and work up a spit shine (and I do use spit).

For those parts of the shoe I am not spit shining (or if I'm being hurried/lazy), I bring to a brush shine and then use a nylon stocking (the foot-size ones you see in a shoe store as a temporary sock for trying on shoes are perfect). Easy way to develop a high shine that is between a spit and brush shine.
