Yeah, read great things about the oil as well.
Your'e giving me ideas...
Would it be so ridiculous to mirror shine my leather sofa, especially if I only do the front of the armrests?
If you do this, you better take pics.
Way of the mirror, Lear. Way of the Mirror.
Flathead screwdriver. Pry it off. Not hard.

Promise I shall. Think I might have hit upon an untried method of seduction here. So many ideas are flooding my mind right now.
I'll simply leave with these words... SHE SHALL BE MINE!
Give me a few weeks to build up the layers, and I'll get back to you all. In the mean time, back to your scheduled programme and apologies for the off-topic interruption.
See you all in a few weeks...
Way of the mirror, Lear. Way of the mirror.
Wouldn't a mirror-shined couch a) crack because couches flex all over the place or b) if it didn't crack, be prone to gross finger-prints and stuff?
Hey, shut up, you!
I've never understood the point.
You can get a $5 Kiwi one at grocery stores, but either way.
Use a rag, old-shirt, or go to Wal-Mart or JoAnns and buy all the fabric you would ever need for $5.
Yes to shoe-trees - doesn't much matter the type.
Only if you want to bull the toe, which is a bit tricky on chromexcel, otherwise not necessary.
I meant, WAY OF THE MIRROR. BLIND HEATHENS WITH YOUR COUCH.
Okay, here's a question: I have a bridle leather briefcase that I treated with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP. When it gets rained on, the water appears to bead on the surface, but the surface of the leather bubbles. When it dries, the bubbles disappear. Besides applying another coat of LP (when it's dry, of course), any ideas to minimize these bubbles?
Those bubbles are water getting trapped between the layer of wax and the leather itself. The only way to prevent it is to put a thicker layer of the heavy duty on it, which you might not want to do. Maybe try a thin coat of the Obenauf's Leather Oil.
I had a problem on my briefcase with the LP. The water would bring up the wax and leave water-droplet shaped wax marks raised on the surface. I stripped it down and put Obenauf's leather oil on it and it's been much better.
