For those of you who pack up the boots for summer, now is the perfect time to give your leather some lovin’. Proper care of leather will extend their life and luxury! And we just happen to have everything you’ll need from our good friends at Otter Wax. (A local Portland company, Otter Wax products contain no animal by-products,save for humanely-harvested beeswax and lanolin, and are non-toxic.)
Think of caring for your leather much as you do your skin - clean, moisturize, and protect. First use saddle soap to gently clean and remove any dirt or stains. Next apply leather salve to condition, moisturize, and protect from water. Lastly, rub on some leather oil containing flaxseed oil and vitamin E, and your leather will have a beautiful shine and offer yet another layer of protection.
Keep your boots out of extreme elements (especially the heat) and keep in dust-free bag. Now when fall rolls around, your boots will be ready to go!
