Default Neatsfoot oil & saddle soap

...and in a pinch lanolin based hand cleaner like Goop. No magic potions or multi step applications. Just rub it in, and wipe it off.

That's why my Bill Walters Leathers that I got in 1975 still look like new, along with my Full Bore boots. And Webco gloves (you know, the ones with the rubber strips on the fingers and across the back).

Of course your're reading a post from someone who still boils his chain in used crancase oil...

Default before and after

Honestly, those "before and after" pictures always make me smile.
A little change in angle, light and distance make it look different.

Same angle, light, and distance. There was a noticable difference in color and shine. Now you can smile even more.

Washing riding gear, jeez what'll they think of next!

For what it's worth I use Hubbards Boot Grease on my boots and Smilin' Mink- mink oil on my jacket and pants. Since I rarely wear leather anymore it's a moot point but the Hubbards works really well on my clod-hoppers. I guess I could spray ScotchGaurd on my textile stuff but there's a pretty even layer of road grime on there after 3 Washington rainy seasons..( August 31st ~ July 15th.) that tends to form a waterproof layer after awhile.
