Ha ha, my Dad HATES the smell of Skidmore's! He always asks me what kind of chemicals I am using and that the smell irritates his throat. I personally don't mind the smell at all.
Great, great stuff. I just wish it was cheaper.
I normally end up using either liquid glycerin saddle soap or paste saddle soap for cleaning and neatsfoot oil for conditioning.
I have a small bottle of Lexol and for the life of me I don't think it does anything to conditon my leather. Every time I use it I end up going over it again later with neatsfoot.
I used to use leather therapy and I love the stuff, but again, pricey.
I don't clean/condition things as much as you guys do. I do my saddles maybe 3-4 times a year and bridles and other leather when they either need cleaning or feel like they might be getting a little dry. So sort of on an as-needed basis. Maybe a few times a year. But I do love my tack and never neglect it. If the sweat gets gross or the leather isn't quite as supple as I think it should be, I always tend to it.
