“Elbow grease is the best polish.”
When I was a boy, Vaseline was always in our medicine cabinet. This magical goo is simply a brand of petroleum jelly used for cosmetic purposes like removing makeup or soothing dry skin.
We also found that a little dab of Vaseline could put quite a shine on our shoes, and provide a bit of waterproofing as a bonus!
For us Baby Boomers, the term “elbow grease” simply means hard work and doing what it takes to make something good even better.
Which current personal or professional project would shine a bit brighter with a bit more elbow grease from you or others?
