      Default leather conditioner

      Hi
      I just thought i would tell you about an excellent leather conditioner i
      just found. I had an old leather jacket, it was given to me years ago by my
      grandmother and I loved it but it had gone hard and crackly. I was going to
      put it in the salvos bin but I really loved it. I kept meaning to get
      leather conditioner but it was sooo expensive so kept shoving it to the back
      of the cupboard. I was going through an old recipe book and in a hint
      section it said to condition leather with olive oil. I thought "yeah,
      right". I had an old leather wallet that the kids were playing with so I
      thought i would try it on that - no harm done. I was amazed. It leather
      came up soft and supple and looked great. So I dragged out the jacket and
      gave it a go. You could see the leather soaking the olive oil in. I had
      done half and got called away for an hour. Came back and was totally
      stunned. The leather that had been conditioned was wonderful. It looked
      better than it had ever looked. I have now conditioned leather shoes, bags,
      jackets, a lounge chair, the dogs collar and lead, and am looking for
      anything else to try. I also have a lovely soft leather jacket that looks
      wonderful and I dont feel guilty about! Try it - it is cheap and easy but
      does a brilliant job.

      Thanks.

      I used it on my black leather coat and it is beautiful. I was going
      to give it to the salvation army, but when I read about the olive oil
      reconditioning leather, I thought I wouldn't have anything to lose.
      It looks just like new. Thanks
