Crisco is an American product; it's a vegetable fat for cooking. I've read that it is used as a, (mens) sexual lubricant as well,

obvious benefits over Cherry Blossom then. which is what we used in the early sixties on our winkle pickers come Beatles boots

All the best - Bill
1961 Flash - stock, reliable, steady, fantastic for shopping
1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco
