Any high-end automotive leather conditioner will work just about as good as anything else on the market.

Re: Leather treatment

Pavement scuffs works well also.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Leather treatment

very useful. I was thinking about this topic the other day and then this thread came up. That article was exactly what I was looking for. Think I might get some of that Blue Magic stuff, scored second highest and I walk by it 5 days a week multiple times.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Leather treatment

I have been using Lexol products for about 7 years now and have had nothing but great results. I use the stuff on all leather products I own. Car interior, clothes/apparell, boots, etc, etc.

Re: Leather treatment

Just bought Lexol from ACE Hardware because i can't find another products in MCN reviews here. My gloves now become a little softer.
What if i dry cleaned/laundry it first and then rubbing Lexol on it?
Is it safe?
Lexol also have leather cleaner products.
I try it on my suit tomorrow and see what will happen.

Did your family work in Freeport?
Indonesian bikes are restricted under 250cc, so just to see big bikes on the road is very rare.
My first bike is Honda NSR150.
Oh, yamaha RXZ is 135 cc.

No, my parents were missionaries.
When I was there, 89-93 the biggest you could find was 150. Although there were a few people that had larger including the police.

Re: Leather treatment

Wow, my leathers usually die a violent death before they wear out.
