    Where can I buy the Tarrago in the EU? The UK stores I've found won't ship it due to it being an aerosol.

    The contact link on the website is looked at everyday and replied to by Teresa:

    http://tarrago.com/

    I'm sure she can put you in the right direction -

    No. like any top coat, it will break down and need reapplying. Not sure what you mean by 'stripped off' though......

    if you want to remove it just use a suede-nubuck eraser and then a brush or wash your shoes with a suede cleaner(i used once Tide too hahah)

    if i remember correctly collonil recommend to reapply their nanoprotector every 6 months!! i do the same with the tarrago nano protector and till now it works great for me![​IMG]

    that`s reassuring. I like the whole process of reapplying stuff on the shoes vs. leaving a one-time application, set it and forget it type of affair. :D

    it depends on how much product you have applied but generally if you won't overdo it you won't brake the barrier ! If you use the suede eraser (maybe the suede crepe cleaning brush too) you ll brake the barrier have been created by the protector

    They're nice, but I prefer a larger brush anyway. I do use an Abbeyhorn suede brush, which is nice. I also currently use Saphir horse hair and Collonil goat hair brushes — both wood-backed. IIRC, boar bristle is not as soft as horse hair, which is not as soft as goat hair (out of which many makeup brushes are made).

    I know Edoya makes an exceptionally nice brush, but I don't think their backings are any nicer than simple wood.

    However, I suspect I'm not telling you anything you don't already know...

    If your looking for a conditioner , yes. Lexol is a brand . They make numerous products . Generally speaking though when people on this thread mention Lexol that's the one they are referring to.
