    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Then blame the answer on Allen Edmonds, as I only quoted what their official answer was to . . . your question . . .after copying and pasting the question you posted.

    DUH . . .

    BREAKING NEWS FROM FOX NEWS TODAY:

    Amazing Uses for WD-40

    [​IMG]


    "Winterproof boots and shoes : Waterproof your winter boots and shoes by giving them a coat of WD-40. It’ll act as a barrier so water can’t penetrate the material. Also use WD-40 to remove ugly salt stains from boots and shoes during the winter months. Just spray WD-40 onto the stains and wipe with a clean rag. Your boots and shoes will look almost as good as new.

    There must really be nothing going on in the world today for this to be considered, "breaking news".

    David,

    Do you use WD40 as joint lubricant and skin care at the same time?

    Best,

    You may want to contact FOX NEWS and ask them. Slow day in politics?

    Click on the source link to see the other uses of WD40. Use #20 might provide insight.

    Thanks for all the input. I'm basically looking for just a conditioner with very minimal cleaner in it. Reno is great but does take some finish off (not as much as AE's cleaner/conditioner), that's why I was thinking of the #2 Neutral cream. Prior to Reno, I used Meltonian's leather balm and I recently purchased Saphir's version and want to see if it's similar. It's still a cleaner but hopefully milder. I guess Venetian is another option.

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Any good conditioner is going to take off a good deal of polish. They are designed to penetrate so that is what they will do.

    Clearly all the Saphir he's been sniffing has affected his brain.

    Hmmm . . . and here I thought driving around in the back alleys of Oakland's gang district in a pickup hawking shoe polish as the cure-all for cleaning bumpers gave a better high than dusting off waster of good photography equipment and becoming a real professional in the arts.

    To each his own.

    Hello Winston,

    Yes, unless it was posted by my pal who would not take my word for anything . . . Hence the reason why he skipped over the portion mentioning the quote was from Allen Edmonds themselves in direct answer and context as to how he phrased it. Perhaps the AE employee should have responded with a curt reply instead o responding with what they did.

    David

    PS: Then again - maybe the Six-pack gang here are form a knee-jerk committee to slow down the rhetoric:

    David, I recommend you read people's questions, several times, until you get it, before even attempting answering.

    Your nonsensical answer about something un-related, shows that you didn't understand the question in any way.

    Better yet, please don't answer any more questions and we will all be better off.
