Anyone use leathertherapy on their products?

Hi,

I've been reading decent reviews about leathertherapy.com's products.

Leather Infusion Gift Set - Leather Wash, Rinse & Restorer

Basically folks say take out ur armor, throw ur leathers in the washing machine with some of the above product and basically line dry?

Too good to be true (my leathers are used -- spend $150 on em ... a leather shop will charge $80 it seems).

Thanks.

Didn't visit your link but I can tell you I would never consider submerging my leathers. I use a warm wet (water) cloth to clean the bug juice, then use leather conditioner several times per season. I've been doing it this way for quite a while with excellent results.

Yeah as it turns out you can just machine wash them in a washing machine with mild soap but you really gotta put the right stuff on em to re moisturize. This is how vanson leathers does it. You can use hand lotion which makes sense since it is also animal skin. You cant use lanolin & there are other specifics.

I use lexol but if you wash em you need more. Never did it myself but know for sure vanson leathers does it.

Lexol is good stuff, Mothers is ok. I prefer/use Meguiars cleaner and conditioner. I'm not a fan of their other stuff, but the leather care is great.
