awesome I put a light coat of Obenauf's Oil today, they are currently sitting in the closet in the shade, hope to be able to start wearing them in tomorrow.

I applied at like 5pm you guys think its okay to start wearing the boots in the afternoon?

I've a Jack George's briefcase that I love, however, one side of the briefcase has some water spots. If I apply Obenauf's, do you think it will get rid of the spots?

Shouldn't be a problem at all.

Best way to shine some nice chromexcel after applying three coats of obenaufs LP? Wolverine 1000s by the way.

Obenaufs or shine: pick 1. You can buff the Obenaufs with a cloth but you're not going to get a shine on these.

Sounds good, once applied does it need to be buffed or just letting it soak in ok?

Does anyone know whether Pecard's will darken the leather less that Obenauf's? Also, Obenauf's is more for work boots (heavy duty uses) and the Pecard's for everyday use, right? I'm debating between the two. For reference, I have heavily scuffed Red Wing GT's and just picked up a pair of Alden Indy boots (but I don't want to darken them too much).

I used the Heavy Duty stuff on my Obensauf Alden Indy Chromo, I didn't notice any darkening. I'm still looking for a leather conditioner to use to protect the below:



Kinda of like a rubbery leather. Wrote to the quoddy people they said to use something without silcone. Anybody can recommend a brand they have used on tan leather shoes that does not darken?

Should I apply the LP to the sole? Also, I've read that I could use a hairdryer as a heatsource, but what am I supposed to heat? Apply it and then warm it up?
post #102 of 210
You can if you want to apply on the sole. Don't think it is necessary. Use the blow dryer to heat up the leather to "open up" its pore. It is supposed to make it absorb much better and faster.

It's as necessary as washing tire treads

Unless you will be constantly cleaning the sole after use and reapplying the LP, it's probably a waste of time.

my obenauf LP is slightly light olive green in color, as oppose to what i see online which mostly are light yellow. emailed them about this and they say its due to the natural ingredients... so that means there's no "expiry date" for their products since they didn't state any?
