    Caring for oil tanned strap

    Hi folks.

    I've been researching on how to care for oil tanned leather straps bit to no avail. I've noticed that my strap is getting dry due to constant contact with the table.

    The only concrete care I found so far is from a video from red wing shoes on how they treat their boots with their in house conditioner.
    Does anybody have experience with red wing all natural conditioner or know of an alternative method of care? Thanks!

    Bick 4 or Sno Seal (All natural oils and preservatives) works great for my straps.

    I've used olive oil in the past and it worked great! Good luck with it.

    A while ago one of the Horween family responded to a question about this in a different forum. As I recall, he recommended Venetian Shoe Cream (available on Amazon) for Horween leathers like Chromexcel that are packed with oils. I've used it for a while now on shoes, wallets, etc. and it's great stuff.
