    Cleaning/Treating Leather Straps

    Do you use anything in particular to clean and/or treat your leather straps? I threw a little Lexol on one of mine, last night, and it seemed to do ok. What are your preferences?

    Any unscented hand lotion that my wife has in the cabinet.

    If needed, a bit of Bick 4 or Hubbard's works great for me.

    Make sure whatever you use does not contain mink oils or other animal fats.

    Small dab of coach leather conditioner I bought 10 years ago when I bought a coach laptop bag.

    Bick4 conditioner. It's sold at boot (as in cowboy) and tack stores for saddles, but I recently found it on amazon for around $10. 8 ounces will last a lifetime. Works on natural leathers, pig, anything, even leather furniture! Not to mention boots!

    Re: Cleaning/Treating Leather Straps

    I've never had a leather strap dry or crack. Regularly wear/handling - and the oils from my fingers/wrist - seem to be sufficient. I suppose if I had to, I'd throw on whatever lotion my wife has laying around.
