Question Saddle Conditioning

What types of saddle conditioners do you all use? I just got a new saddle and want to keep it in great shape because I love it haha. Also how often do you condition your saddles and do you use soap before hand?

I use Leather CPR and it seems to be doing a good job!

I have a long list of leather care products. It's depends on my mood, on how I want to clean. I pretty much only use a couple of them for day to day cleaning though.

I have the Lexol foam, which is quick and easy, and cleans up well. If I have time, I use my Fiebings glycerin bar, which I adore, it just takes a little more time.
I pretty much have always used Lexol conditioner. I does a pretty good job. I've been happy with it. I've been wanting to try the Passier lederbalsam, so I'm curious as to what others use as well.

As also, I use neatsfoot and corn oil as needed to keep things soft whenever it gets dry.

For day to day cleaning (after a workout) I use Fiebings Saddle Soap (in the tin) or a 50/50 mixture of Murphys Oil Soap and water (in a spray bottle).

For my 2x per year heavy duty conditioning, I use a few products, such as Hydrophane, or Black Rock, or Neatsfoot oil (not the compound).
