I had a request put to me tonite.... and I did not have an answer, so I am appealing to the experts!

Let's say you have a relatively new pair of pointe shoes, that are just perfectly broken in for a performance. But, these shoes have a few "stage smudges" on them, and you are performing in a small theatre, so you won't have the cloak of distance.

You'd like to gently minimize these smudges and present a cleaner look..... how best to accomplish this? one acquaintance suggested rubbing alcohol.. but what has worked best for those with experience?

Although there are a number of dance professionals on Ballet Talk, there are many more experts in this area on our sister site, Ballet Talk for Dancers where there is an entire forum devoted to pointe shoes.

You'll need to register separately for that site; not all forums are visible to guests.
