Message:  Kavod Harav ,

i sent in a 2 question a few days ago, which are relevant to the nine days and i have not yet received an response,

1) can one polish and clean his shoes during the nine days, or is that considered washing cloths?
2)from previous posts youve said no dry cleaning during the nine days, can one wear washed cloths from be4 the nine days? and if you need clean clothes to be presentable for a meeting etc. can you dry clean them?

Thank you,

Chaim
   
Reply:  1. You can polish shoes
2. There is no way to wear washed and/or drycleaned clothes unless it is a real hefsed mamon (loss of money).
