I have a pair of natural CXL LWBs that I want to strip back to the base and re-oil/grease.
I know natural CXL is supposed to develop a worn patina over time, but these have been "over-smeared" with grease/neatsfoot oil and the built up layers are quite dirty in places.
Is is possible to strip away as much of the surface layers as possible and re-oil? When I run my nail over the leather, you can see the original color below.
I dont want to go overly harsh on them - any...
