Leather conditioning...

I just inherited My late Uncle`s possible Pouches and some other Leather stuff that He had made. He has been gone for 18 Years and it is pretty well dried out Any suggestions on a good Leather restorer??

Re: Leather conditioning...

I use Track of the Wolfs pure mink oil on a soft cloth. Really does a nice job. All natural and I think I read somewhere that mink are the only known animal with no known skin disease? ( I could be making that up )
It also will make your hands nice and soft and in a pinch a patched roundball lubed with it makes an interesting chapstick!

I just brought an old dried out pouch back to life with Neets Foot Oil. also had an old Pearson archery back quiver from the 50's that it worked wonders on.

Tandy makes a product called LEXOL. I've brought bark tanned deer hides back to life with it.

Re: Leather conditioning...

Ha, one of a kind. Had made up some more diy patching grease this year.
The possibles bag is getting old at the 40 year mark, so I used the inexpensive grease.
Works good.
The grease is a mix of petroleum jelly and vegetable shortening. And it's not the expensive spread. The latter is what it says on the packages, supplied at Walmart.
