Sno-Seal

For your leather boots. How many use it and do you like it? Does it keep your feet dry?
Do you follow the directions when applying, (heat boots to 120, 130 before applying), I did mine a few weeks ago and it's worn off already, I used a hair dryer on them but I don't think I got them hot enough.
Thoughts, experience?

Re: Sno-Seal

I use it..Brush the boots off. apply liberally, then hit it with a hair dryer, then put another light coat on and melt that in.. I've used it a good number of years. Just did all my leather boots beginning of this month.

Works for me but mainly I'm in rubber boots when I want my feet to stay dry.

Re: Sno-Seal

I have been using Obendaufs leather treatment and think it is the best I have used.

Re: Sno-Seal

I never used Sno Seal.

MINK OIL has worked well for years - no need for me to switch.

Re: Sno-Seal

Get the boots hot enough, should last all season. Whats on the outside may wear off but what is absorbed should last. Are your feet getting wet? Works well.

Re: Sno-Seal

Love the stuff!!!!! Yes, heat the boots with a hair dryer, rub it on and work it in and then heat them again and finish with another light coat and wipe off any excess (or leave it on.)

Re: Sno-Seal

I have used it and still do sometimes. Always heat my boots in the oven set to 120 then apply.

Like you, I find it wears off quickly and my feet get wet, especially when busting brush.

Eh...wot?

Re: Sno-Seal

I have used SnoSeal for thirty years. Put my boots on top the radiator to warm up. Then rub the stuff in and back to warm up and a second treatment. So seal won't totally prevent the leather from getting soggy, especially if out working in wet snow or slush for several hours.

Re: Sno-Seal

Thanks, I did the oven thing, seemed to work well. Went out today walking in mud and water and feet are dry.
