Wich product do you use to clean your leather saddle?
I would like to know the name of it so i can look for it on the internet and see wich one i like the most.
I'm actually just using a bit of olive oil because my product finished and i want to try a new one. Oil is very good for the leather but i want to know what you people use. :-)
Olive oil (cheapest) is actually quite good for leather (unless you don't want darkening) but I'd rather save the "good stuff" for my bread!!!
Good luck and happy trails, Renee
i use lexol conditoner/polisher/and cleaning. its great stuff and i use a lot of just regular generic leather softner.ive never heard of olive oil being used!
I like Farnam's Leather New Foam. The foam application is really tidy - I use with a soft washcloth. Been using it on all my leather tack for years.
Olive oil is not good to use. It will go rancid and possibly damage the leather. Horseman's one step doesn't clean well and will seal dirt in to the pores of the leather. It can also leave a film on the leather.
I use Passier Lederbalsam for conditioning and Lexol cleaner for cleaning. Or I will use a simple glycerine bar or castile soap to clean leather.
When my daughter inherited an old saddle, I asked around to a lot of people and almost unanimously everyone told me Leather New. It worked exceptionally well, and was pretty inexpensive.
i use a glycerine bar most of the time. i also will condition the leather sometimes but not always but i cant remember what the product is called !
Olive oil is good for the leather, it wont go rancid and it doesnt damage. The only problem is that the saddle stays a bit greasy if it doesnt dry good, but its not a big problem, just dont put to much on it!
Im interested in Lexon and Leather new! They sound good ;)
I will try to find them here in Spain!
I like Lexol--they have a cleaner and a separate conditioner that have given me a good result on everything from tack to leather car upholstery! Use the cleaner first and then the conditioner, or just use the conditioner if your surface is clean enough.
I would be afraid olive oil would encourage pests (rats, bugs, etc.) to gnaw on my saddle!
