    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.

    Does this work on all colors of leather?
    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
