Obenauf's LP: It works - Page 15
Styleforum Top Picks
Who knows how long they have been sitting on the shelf before you got them? And if you are trying to waterproof them with LP...they might not be waterproof before doing so.
Did my replacement pair of katahdin boots yesterday. Gave them a conditioning with lexol and then a few coats of Obenauf's alternated between setting them in a low temp oven so they would soak it up.
Still miss the fact that you can buff SnoSeal up to a decent shine...Obenauf's is a little too soft and never gets there.
Sounds like you used too much. Soften the HDLP in the container (e.g., with a hair dryer), grab some with your hands, and work it into the straps. Keep working the straps with your hands. When finished, take a rag and wipe it down. If it "dried sticky" then you used too much and/or didn't wipe off the excess.
