568 pages in this thread eh.gif I'm not reading all that, should I remove the rubber stopper on the thong part from the sole before cleaning, or is that just being to picky? Will it affect the life of the shoe? Should I use reno? Cream, wax or both?

What is the reason again why people don't like using products with petroleum distillates?  I know that this and silicone are the big no-nos for leather care.  I'm asking because I just recently found out that the waterproofing product that I use for suede contains petroleum distillates.  I wanted to check what the impact of this type of product is for the suede.

 

Thanks.

Waterproofing stops the leather from breathing, which isn't ideal for leather.

How do you treat suede then?  I may not be using the right term when I say waterproof because I don't think that really happens.  Maybe water resistant?  I thought they had to be treated for protection.

making suede water resistant by spray is the only method I can think of, I think it's better than letting them get wet patches.

The reason why we don't use spray on calf shoes is because cream nourishes the shoes, and wax provides a protective layer.

This.....though I am no scientist.

As the distributor for Tarrago, Saphir, MDO and LCA, it's a tough call but I have to say that our tests here show the Nano Protector as the superior product.

The nano works a lot better I think saphir still leaves water spots after using both sprays. Saphir is more natural smelling I guess. And the alden Edmonds one works just as well and it costs a lot less than both.

Can the Nano Protector stuff be easily stripped off the suede/leather or is this a permanent coat?
