Im wondering how you can get your leather braided reins to be softer? Mine keep rubbing holes in my gloves. I have heard you can soak them in water for a little while or just oil the heck out of them... Does anyone else have any tips?
I would stay away from soaking them in water, that will make them more stiff actually.
If you have conditioned them and oiled them and it isn't making a difference, you can try coating them liberally with oil, then sticking them in a ziplock bag overnight to soak. Sometimes if you warm up the oil/leather it will penetrate deeper.
Yes, warming up the leather and adding some good conditioner will make it absorb better, try a hairdryer on a low setting to speed up the process. When the leather is warmed up, really try working the product into it, bending & manipulating the reins like silly putty. Posted via Mobile Device
