Remember that weird one that we had that tasted like a digestif?
You moron, I just said I had a shitty amp.It's a fine amp, I just don't like it.
Inflamed vagina very uncomfortable for certain members
I am grateful for not having any student loans.
No, that was all me. Same with insinuating you had an inflamed vagina. I take full credit for that one also.
Read a book about the science of leather. It all makes perfect sense. We know a lot more about leather today than they did in the late 1800's. Why are you so insistent on this? Science and logic man. Where's you're "verified claim" or whatever you mean by that for the use of saddle soap past "it has been used for ages"?The only reason it exists today still is because people have the same attitude towards it as you do right now, "well it has been around for ages it...
Also, since polar solvents don't have a pH and cannot alter it I see no reason not to use them to remove polish, or clean your shoes. Why even bother with Saddle Soap? WE NOW KNOW THEY VARY in pH, BUT WE STILL KNOW THEY AREN'T OPTIMAL.
The vinegar thing just makes sense in the context of what I have learned about the making of leather and its properties. For ages people have used a vinegar solution to rid salt stains from shoes. Why? Because salt water is alkaline and those salt rings that keep reappearing is exactly the leeching out of the tannins and fat liquors that I just spoke about. You need something acidic to inhibit that chemical reaction from persisting.Also, lighter colored leathers tend...
The tannins bond to the protein fibers through hydrogen bonding. The protein fibers are ionic positive and the tannins are ionic negative, this is why they bond. These are weak bonds and since leather's protein fibers are amphoteric exposing it to a pH above it's isoelectric point ~3 - 5 shifts the fibers to ionic negative which repels the tannins, fat liquors, dyes and anything that is ionic negative and hydrogen bonded to the fibers. It is like putting two like poles...
He was, he was live texting me.
