Obenauf's LP: It works - Page 15

post #211 of 217
Hi I'm new here and I've read most parts of the thread. I adopted the crane's method in applying the obenaufs for my iron rangers. I've worn them around for a few weeks and decided to put some obenaufs on them. Colour has darkened a few shades as expected and most of the LP has been absorbed. It's been two days since the application now and the leather is still sticky with white residue on it and also in the stitching. I have already tried wiping with dry and damp cloth as well as brushing but to no avail. I'm hoping that some of the more experienced ones can help me?

You saturated your boots with Obenauf's. Unless you have a time machine there's not much to be done.

Just keep brushing.

Should be fine in a week.

I only applied two coats so saturation is not possible right?

There's no reason to rub Obenauf's all over new boots in the first place?

I like to condition and/or treat new shoes before wearing.

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.
