INTRODUCTION

Nowadays, people are very concern when it comes to their appearance especially Filipino students. They want to look nice every time they are going to their school they wear their proper uniform with their black shoes and one problem that we encounter is how to keep our shoes looking as good as new but as a student we experience problems especially in financial. So we therefore decided to make an alternative shoeshine. Shoe shine (or boot polish), is a waxy paste, cream, or liquid used to polish, shine, waterproof, and restore the appearance of leather shoes or boots, thereby extending the footwear's life. We also decided to make shoeshine because some traditional shoe polishes contain chemicals that are toxic if ingested and can be harmful to the environment if improperly disposed of. We want to make a shoe shine that is made up of organic materials. We want to come up with a shoe shine that is truly eco-friendly and cheap. METHODOLOGY

Our homemade shoeshine is very easy to do and requires only a few ingredients. INGREDIENTS:
* Charcoal
* Coconut oil
* Candle
PROCEDURE
* Pound the charcoal until it become refined using a mortar and pestle * Liquefy the candle
* Put the coconut oil
* Wait until it begin to boil then put the refined charcoal * Make it boil again then filtrate it using a cloth and put it in the container * Wait until it dry up
NOTE: The amount of the oil and candle must be ratio so that it will not be to viscous and to stiff.
