Leather Conditioner: Leather Honey since 1968 "Makes Leather Last Longer"

How to Redye Leather

We were browsing on Pinterest (our new addiction – follow our boards here) and found this great tutorial on how to redye leather from the folks at eHow. We had to pass it along, especially because it advocates avoiding silicone-based cleaners and conditioners. We couldn’t agree more – silicone actually dries out leather in the long run, leading to additional cracking and dryness (Leather Honey is, of course, 100% free of silicone and solvents).

The only piece of advice that we’d disagree with in this article is step 10, which advocates for applying leather polish, saddle soap or wax to the leather. Wax is actually harmful to leather, and polish is generally unnecessary if you apply a high-quality leather conditioner like Leather Honey.

If you decide to die your leather, we’d love to hear about your adventures in the comments!

    I don’t own a pair of shoes or boots with a price tag of less than $300.00 so using the right conditioner is paramount to me. In the past I have applied two (2) coats of Mink Oil to start and generally apply another coat every four to six months or whenever the leather begins to feel a little dry. Once a year I apply two (2) coats of Montana Pitch Leather Conditioner to each pair of boots and shoes. If I am doing something wrong please let me know. Thank you. -DFreis

    Well, we’d say you’re doing it wrong because you’re not using Leather Honey, which is superior to other leather conditioners! Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean. You might also like this review from Antonio at Real Men Real Style, who also owns and wears a lot of pricey designer shoes.
