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 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).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
