Clearly Patrick Is referring to conditioner but just a quick comment Re: Lexol leather *cleaner* vs. Renomat. If you are trying to remove wax polish, IME the Lexol will accomplish the job but it takes a lot of product and effort/time. Renomat, OTOH seems to accomplish the task with very little product and effort. Renomat also seems to leave the leather in better condition after the polish is removed and it takes very little product.
So in this case (Lexol cleaner vs. saphir Renomat) Renomat may be a more economical option in terms of time and effort, and maybe even price.
I agree. Renomat is much faster and easier to use, but it also seems to dry out the leather more than the Lexol cleaner. I have moved from using Lexol cleaner to using Renomat in most cases, and I just use a little more Lexol leather conditioner when I'm done with the cleaning process.
I have a same experience with Lexol. Really need much effort to remove all the Polish in the Shoes. It's ok to remove about 1 or 2 layer of wax, but I have a problem when I want to remove entire Wax in the Mirror Shine part. There's still quite thick of polish after applying Lexol. Btw, in Indonesia there's a local Brand of Shoe Care called Cololite. They produce a Leather Cleaner too, in paste not liquid like Lexol
The ability of Cololite to remove Wax is awesome compared to Lexol. It's feels like entire wax melt when Cololite is applied. But Same like glenjay, it dries out the Leather as hell. It feels like no moisture left on the shoes. Maybe this is the characteristics of this kind of cleaner. I use both, of course for different purpose
