Mister J’s Living In Leather: Conditioning Leather

Mister J’s Living In Leather: Conditioning Leather



Today, I ran into another Leatherman and had a conversation about leather. We talked about how each others lives had change in the past couple of years. Then we got to the conversation of how to take care of ones leathers.


I realized that there are a lot of people that don’t know how to condition there leathers. There are different ways to take care of ones leathers, so I can only tell you how I condition my leathers.

Supplies:

A Small Bowl of Water, 2 Rags and BICK 4 Conditioning Solution

Step 1:

Find a flat surface and make sure it’s clean and clear of items.

Step 2:

Take Rag #1 and wet it with the water in the bowl.

Step3:

Wipe down your leather with the water in the bowl. (The reason why we do this is to get any access dirty off your leather.

Step 4:

Take the BICK 4 Conditioning Solution and take a small amount and apply it onto the leather then take Rag #2 and spread the conditioner into the conditioner. I suggest doing it in portions and using a circular motion. Make sure that you get in creases, especially where leather separates. As an alternate way you may apply the BICK Leather Conditioning Solution on the Rag #2 and apply is to the leather.

Step 5:

Repeat Step 4 in all parts of the leather

I hope this helps

I buy my BICK 4 at the Outback Leather in Laurel MD
