    I agree with this. Please stop using renomat on these shoes! Do as above and apply some cordovan cream! Very best wishes, Munky.

    Renomat is a stripper and renovateur is a conditioner. I have never used Renomat as I have never found a need for something as potential harsh on any of my shoes. I use Renovateur occasionally but not particularly regularly. Generally, don't use too much of anything and brush, brush, brush.

    I had bottle of Renomat in a box that I keep my shoe maintenance stuff in and didn’t close the lid tight enough. Started smelling something, opened the box and it had leaked and melted all the bristles on my suede brush. Strong stuff.
