I normally use waterbased (Boston shoe cream for cheaper stuff) shoe cream for my shoes, neutral for daily maintenance and with pigment if there are any scratches or creases that need to be less visible. If I take a slightly damp cloth and rub it against the leather, it will get stained from the pigmented shoe cream even days after polishing it and removing excess pigment.
My question is: I would like to apply leather cream (shoe cream) to my briefcase and other leatherproducts such as gloves. I suspect that using a pigmented shoe cream will stain clothes and other material when wearing the briefcase etc, especially if it would rain. What product do you recommend as an alternative? Would a shoe cream that is not purely waterbased (such as Saphir Creme Surfine, which contains waxes and oils) be better?
You may wish to try Lexol to your briefcase.
